The research team led by Professor Kanya Kusano (Director of ISEE, Nagoya University) succeeded in developing the first physics-based model that can accurately predict the location and scale of imminent large solar flares.
As an activity of SCOSTEP and its new program PRESTO (Predictability of Variable Solar-Terrestrial Coupling, 2020-2024), SCOSTEP/PRESTO Newsletter volume 24 has been published from ISEE, Nagoya University and distributed to the scientists in the world.
A group of researchers including scientists from the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science, University of Tokyo, Nagoya University, and the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) used the spin-polarized Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory in the United States to show that, in polarized proton-proton collisions, neutral pions emitted in the very forward area of collisions—where direct interactions involving quarks and gluons are not applicable—still have a large degree of left-right asymmetry.
Scientists from the international XENON collaboration, involving Professor. Yoshitaka Itow (KMI, ISEE), Associate Professor. Masaki Yamashita (ISEE), YLC Assistant Professor Shingo Kazama (KMI, IAR), announced that data from their XENON1T, the world's most sensitive dark matter experiment, show a surprising excess of events.
Dr. Otsuka (Division for Ionospheric and Magnetospheric Research) has been selected as one of the 10 Top Reviewers in 2019 by the journal "Advances in Space Research".
A prototype telescope with the Schwarzschild-Couder optical system, developed for the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) project, successfully detected very-high-energy gamma rays from the Crab Nebula.
As an activity of SCOSTEP and its new program PRESTO (Predictability of Variable Solar-Terrestrial Coupling, 2020-2024), SCOSTEP/PRESTO Newsletter volume 23 has been published from ISEE, Nagoya University.
