1 Participación Española en SAFARI/SPICA F. Najarro (CAB) CAB J. R. Goicoechea J. Martín-Pintado J. Gómez-Elvira J. Torres L. Mora J. Bueno INTA L.M. González C. Pastor T. Belenguer M. Reina IAC I. Pérez-Fournón Paco Najarro SEA 2010

2 Themes Addressed by SPICA 1. What are the conditions for life and planetary formation? 2. How does the Solar System work? 3. What are the fundamental laws of the Universe? 4. How did the Universe originate and what is it made of? Paco Najarro SEA 2010

3 What is SPICA? PI:Takao Nakagawa (JAXA-lead)+ESA partnership+others * Observatory-class mission European access through ESA partnership *Telescope: 3.2m, Actively cooled to <6 K: monolithic mirror clean PSF * Core wavelength: 5-210μm: Δθ = arcsec * Orbit: Sun-Earth L2 Halo * Warm Launch Cooling in orbit Long lifetime ~ 3 yrs (5 yrs goal) * Launch: ~2018 Paco Najarro SEA 2010

4 The origins questions key science drivers and SPICA and SAFARI How do stars and galaxies form and evolve over cosmic ages? SAFARI will observe thousands of obscured, far away galaxies and determine what processes govern their evolution How does our solar system relate to other planetary systems and could life evolve elsewhere? SAFARI will characterize oxygen, water, ice and rock in young planet forming systems and study their relation to the rocks and ice in our own Solar System Science is the driver basis for the SAFARI Science Requirements Area and number of pixels on the sky, filters and wavebands, stability etc. ~1 degree 4

5 Why observe in the Mid and Far-IR? MIR FIR FIR MIR Galliano et al. Star light recycled by dust and gas Complete picture only seen by observing in the mid- and far-ir Paco Najarro SEA 2010

6 Why SPICA? IR Natural Sky Background VS Thermal Telescope Emission Paco Najarro SEA 2010

7 Why SPICA? 冷 却 方 法 の 革 新 Small Telescope Big Telescope ISO (60cm) (2000L He 2.6t) HERSCHEL (3.5 m) (No Cryogen 2.6t) Paco Najarro SEA 2010

8 Huge Gain of Sensitivity!!! 2.5 orders SPICA 1.5 orders SPICA Paco Najarro SEA 2010
