Maksimovic. The story of Bruno Pontecorvo

The Italian première of the film "Maksimovic. La storia di Bruno Pontecorvo" was held on 11 September, in the Aula Magna of Università La Sapienza. Conceived by Giuseppe Mussardo, a professor of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste, the film retraces the life of the scientist and of the man who embodied the contradictions and the spirit of a tormented century.

Do black holes have hair?

Black holes may be less simple and "clean" than how the most authoritative theoretical model describes them. This is what a group of researchers based at the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, and IST, Lisbon, claims in a new article appeared in Physical Review Letters.

According to the scientists' calculations, these celestial bodies may actually have "hair".

Correcting emotional misunderstandings

It so happens that we interpret other people's emotions based on our own and thus sometimes make mistakes. Luckily our brain is equipped with correction devices: scientists at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, have identified the area where this mechanism should be located.

The ferromagnetic Kondo effect

A group of physicists that includes scientists of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste have shown how to obtain a particular case of a physical effect – so far never observed in reality – whose studies have earned a Nobel Prize. The scientists have also observed the response of the material subject to such effect. These observations will provide precious indications to the experimental physicists in order to verify, in the future, their theory.

La conoscenza contro il razzismo

Lo dicono la scienza e l'esperienza "sul campo": sono la cultura e la conoscenza le vere risposte da dare al razzismo. Si è conclusa una giornata importante alla Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati di Trieste (SISSA) di Trieste dove si è parlato di come la scienza può aiutare a combattere il razzismo.

SISSA “asso piglia tutto”

Le Valutazioni sulla Qualità della Ricerca pubblicate dall'ANVUR confermano la SISSA al primo posto per tutti e tre i suoi settori di ricerca. Un risultato senza pari in Italia, che dimostra l'altissima qualità nelle pubblicazioni scientifiche della Scuola.

What does your brain tell you?

An exhibition proposed by National Geographic Channel unveil the tricks of our brain and launch the new season of the TV show "Che cosa ti dice il Cervello", (What does your brain tell you?). Among others, also two neuroscientists of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste as well as SISSA Medialab have collaborated on the exhibition, on display in the Galleria delle Carrozze of Milano Centrale railway station.

The exhibition and the new season of the TV show has been presented by Matteo Bordone and Olga Puccioni at a press conference on 12 September.

Young Researcher Meeting

They are young, they are physicists and they arrived in Trieste from various parts of the world to meet and exchange views.

On 3 and 4 June the "Young Researcher Meeting" was held at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), an event organized by students and postdocs of various disciplines to talk about Physics.
