"The mechanism for gamma-ray bursts from space is decoded" - Prof. Tsvi Piran

6 August, 2019

Prof. Tsvi Piran, working with a group of other researchers, decoded the mechanism for gamma-ray bursts following an eruption observed last January. Now, in a paper published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, he describes how a stream of particles moving toward us at close to light speed emits the gamma radiation.

Winners of the Rosenblum Award 2019

3 March, 2019

Two Rosenblum awards are given each year to graduate students or postdocs working in Gravitation. The awards are given during the years' Rosenblum lecture that takes place in Memory of Prof. Arnold Rosenblum, an internationally known theoretical physics from Utah  who has worked on Gravitation. The awards were donated by Mrs. Dorothy Rosenblum, Arnold's mother after his  premature death at the age of 46. 

We wish to congratulate this years’ prize winners:
