RadioNet3 Homepage

RadioNet3 is a project supported by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7). RadioNet3 builds on the success of two preceding RadioNet projects and takes a leap forward towards the facilities of the future (such as ALMA and the SKA).

RadioNet3 includes 27 partners operating world-class radio telescopes and/or performing cutting-edge Research & Development (R&D) in a wide range of technology fields important for radio astronomy.

The general goals of RadioNet3 are:

  • To provide and facilitate access to the complete range of Europe's outstanding radio-astronomical facilities 
  • To secure a long term perspective on scientific and technical developments in radio Astronomy by pooling skills, resources and expertise
  • To stimulate new R&D activities for the already existing radio infrastructures, ensuring the readiness of a scientific and technical community for SKA 
  • To contribute to the implementation of the Strategic Plan for European Astronomy (ASTRONET) by building a sustainable radio astronomical research community.

Funding agencies and international project consortia recognize RadioNet as the European entity representing radio astronomy.

Type Ia supernovae stem from the explosion of white dwarfs coupled with twin stars

9 Sep 2014
A study discards the possibility that the progenitor of the type Ia SN 2014J might have stemmed from the explosions of a white dwarf nourished by a normal star. Were these conclusions to become generalized, the use of type Ia supernovae “cosmological standard candles” might need to be revised.
