Cosmic ray induced background can seriously limit the determination of nuclear reaction cross sections at low collision energies relevant to astrophysical processes. Underground sites, however, can drastically reduce the cosmic ray background, opening the way towards ultra low cross section determination. Based on the experience of LUNA (Laboratory for Underground Nuclear Astrophysics)...

I will discuss highlights from the recent Planck 2015 release and present the most stringent bounds to date on a widely accepted cosmological picture, including the latest results from the joint Planck/Bicep effort on the quest for primordial gravitational waves. The ΛCDM model withstood a wide collection of tests at increasing precision over the last decade and has, with the latest Planck...
