High-Resolution Study of Blazar TXS 2013+370 and BEAM: A Space Technology and Research Student Team

The talk will focus on two key areas. Part one will present the high-resolution imaging of Blazar TXS 2013+370, a study conducted as part of an M.Sc. thesis. This research aims to resolve the inner jet structure of the compact radio source TXS 2013+370 in total intensity and polarization. This analysis utilizes VLBA data combined with Effelsberg observations at frequencies of 22 GHz, 43 GHz, and 86 GHz. Part two will highlight BEAM, a student space association at the  Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece. This section will  cover various projects undertaken by the team during student  competitions organized by ESA and other European space organizations.  It will also discuss the latest project, ASTRO, which aims to design  and construct a 5-m radiotelescope at the university.
