    LOFAR proposal accepted!
    The proposed observations of at least 2 out 3 plausible intracluster filaments using the High Band Antenna of LOFAR has been accepted, so more intriguing data for the project will soon arrive. The hope is that, also in combination with RM data of the same fields, strong constraints on the typical magnetisation properties of magnetic fields in the warm hot intergalactic medium can be placed for the first time. Notice the candidates have been chosen so that their (physical and projected)

    The loneliness of MAGCOW's PI is almost over and 2 PhD will start in November, finally! Some of the activities: coauthored paper on the analysis of the "Sausage" cluster by F. Loi et al. using the Sardinia Radio Telescope here, which also lead to an INAF press release.  Another coauthored paper using SRT is underway. two new repository of data from MAGCOW have been starte: one on the large-scale simulations of the cosmic web, and another on our high-resolution simulation of galaxy clusters (both

    First month of MAGCOW!
    This has been the first month since the start of MAGCOW - not tremendously exciting because the PI is still also the only member, but things will change soon. Anyway, it was not a lazy month,  some highlight: 1 coauthored paper on the use of MHD simulations to study the propagation of Axionlike Particles (Montanino, Vazza, Mirizzi & Viel 2017 PRL) leading to press releases from SISSA and INAF, as well as to a short interview on MEDIA-INAF; 1 accepted paper on MHD cosmological simulations, 2
