New season of AstroCoffee!
We invite first-year undergraduate students to “Astrophysical Coffee” - classes on the basics of astrophysics in a relaxed atmosphere. You can discuss the latest astrophysical news, learn first-hand about astrophysical departments and laboratories of MIPT, and perhaps get involved in scientific work. Takes place on Mondays at 17:05 in 206 LC, lecturer - V.S. Beskin
8 September 2023
The second Summer School of Astrophysics was held from August 14 to 25 at the Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory. A detailed report on the school can be found here. Of the 20 participants, seven are MIPT students. These are Daniil Kozlov, Daniil Kurylenko, Valentin Nezabudkin, Veronika Pluzhnikova, Vladimir Fedorov, Vyacheslav Chernosov, Artyom Churilkin. Laboratory staff took part in organizing and conducting the school: V.S. Beskin, E.V. Kravchenko, A.V. Plavin and D.I. Zobnina - as teachers; E.E. Nokhrina, Y.Y. Kovalev and V.S. Beskin - as members of the scientific organizing committee.
