The 2023 Galaxies & Cosmology Symposium was successfully held at the Shanghai Astronomy Museum
In order to deeply exchange scientific research results and promote the cultivation of young talents, the symposium on the Galaxies & Cosmology Symposium was successfully held in the Shanghai Astronomy Museum from May 26 to 28, 2023. The Symposium was jointly organized by the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Purple Mountain Observatory (PMO) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Shanghai Science & Technology Museum. Nearly 40 people attended the meeting, including the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Purple Mountain Observatory (PMO) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Zhejiang University, the Shanghai Astronomy Museum and the Observatoire Astronomique de Strasbourg in France.
At the seminar, Guo Hong, a researcher at the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory, made a review report on the gas composition in galaxies, introducing the evolution of gas in the process of galaxy formation and the latest progress in gas research. Lin Qing, Director of the Astronomical Research Center of Shanghai Science & Technology Museum, introduced the construction concept, exhibition characteristics and overview of the research center of the Shanghai Astronomy Museum. Zheng Wenwen of the Purple Mountain Observatory introduced how galaxy forms were transformed into audible music, thus exploring new ideas for audiovisual popular science exhibits, which stimulated the interest of participants.
A number of young scholars and students introduced the latest research results in recent years around the semi-analytical model of fluid galaxy formation, numerical simulation of fluid dynamics, CSST simulation and other scientific problems in the field of galaxy cosmology. The participating scholars listened carefully, actively asked questions and discussed enthusiastically, fully demonstrating their enthusiasm and thirst for scientific exploration. After the meeting, participants visited the exhibition areas of the Shanghai Astronomy Museum, as well as the Solar Telescope (EAST) and the 1m Telescope (DOT).
