Ahmedabad University has announced the launch of a new International Centre for Space and Cosmology.
May 20, 2022: Ahmedabad University has announced the launch of its International Centre for Space and Cosmology. The centre will be dedicated to research and education in the field of space and cosmology and will be open to students from all over the world.
The centre seeks to reach young students by encouraging them to consider research careers in space and cosmology and to provide them with information regarding opportunities in these fields.
The centre will be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and will offer a range of programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Students will have the opportunity to work with leading researchers in the field and gain hands-on experience in cutting-edge research projects.
The launch of the new centre coincides with recent observations by the Horizon Telescope (May 2022), an extremely compact and dense matter event in the centre of the galaxy.
Using a series of radio telescopes networked around the globe, an image depicting an ultracompact object in the centre of our galaxy has been obtained.
The JMN (Joshi-Malafarina-Narayan) Naked Singularity model was proposed and published in 2011 by Professor Pankaj Joshi and colleagues and contributed to the in-house modeling of this discovery.
The Centre will work closely with other research clusters of Ahmedabad University. The International Centre for Space and Cosmology is also hosting workshops and conferences, hosting visitors in the short and long term, engaging students from around the world interested in astrophysics, space and cosmology, and creating educational programs.
The launch of the International Centre for Space and Cosmology is a major step forward for Ahmedabad University and will help to position it as a leading institution for space research and education.
Anchored in Ahmedabad University’s School of Arts and Sciences, the Centre will work with stakeholders at the national and international levels.
The director, Professor Pankaj Joshi, is an acclaimed scientist for his fundamental contributions to black hole physics and cosmology.
One of the main themes of his research is the possibility of gravitational collapse of giant stars in naked solitude rather than black holes.
The other founding faculty members of the Centre are Professor Gaurav Goswami and Professor Raghavan Rangarajan, who work on both cosmology and high energy physics, especially in the context of early cosmology and correlations with observations of the universe today.
