„I will present the main capabilities of the 10.4 m Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC), located on the island of La Palma. Its present instrumentation plan will be described, together with some of the most relevant scientific results in various fields of Astrophysics.“
"SPHERE/VLT is an extreme adaptive optics instrument designed to directly image exoplanets. It was designed and build by a European consortium (including laboratories from France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands) from and saw its first light in 2014. Most of the guaranteed time observations (GTO) are related to exoplanets and young disk. I will briefly present some results from these programs. I will then focus on the "Other Science" part of the GTO, aiming at showing that SPHERE is a versatile instrument able to answer key question in a variety of topics. I will present the results obtained via this program, ranging from 3D mapping of asteroids to star clusters via jets from young stars and evolved stars, including the first direct image of the surface of stars."
Amol Bonde will make a presentation about his practical speciality training on measurement methods in remote sensing.
