We analyse observations, spanning 15 yr, dedicated to the extreme emission-line object Hen 3-209. Our photometric data indicate that the luminosity of the star undergoes marked variations with a peak-to-peak amplitude of 0.65 mag. These variations are recurrent, with a period of 16.093 +/- 0.005 d. The spectrum of Hen 3-209 is peculiar with many different lines (H I, He I, Fe II,. showing P Cygni profiles. The line profiles are apparently changing in harmony with the photometry. The spectrum also contains [O III] lines that display a saddle profile topped by three peaks, with a maximum separation of about 600 km s(-1). Hen 3-209 is most likely an evolved luminous object suffering from mass ejection events and maybe belonging to a binary system. [less ▲]

Although X-ray emission from massive, early-type stars has been known for almost thirty years, it is only with the advent of the high-resolution spectrographs aboard Chandra and XMM-Newton that a detailed investigation of the X-ray spectra of these stars has become possible. The existing observations of both single and binary early-type stars have been used to study the properties of their stellar winds. While some results agree with the expectations from theoretical models, other spectra show unexpected features. In this contribution, we review our current knowledge on the X-ray emission of stars of spectral type O and Wolf-Rayet and discuss the possibilities to test some new ideas with future high-resolution X-ray observations.

Qui détient le record des découvertes de comètes ? Une femme. Qui a permis de comprendre comment est organisée la population des étoiles ? Une femme. Qui a découvert la loi permettant d'arpenter l'Univers, a trouvé des phares dans l'espace, a compris le fonctionnement des forges stellaires et a bouleversé notre vision de l'Univers ? Encore et toujours une femme... Pourtant, quand on doit citer un astronome -- historique -- au hasard, on pense le plus souvent -- des hommes : Ptolémée, Galilée, Copernic ou, plus prè de nous par exemple, Hubble. Certes, au cours des siècles, les femmes n'ont guère eu accè aux sciences en général et -- l'astronomie en particulier mais ce n'est pas une raison pour croire en l'absence totale de contributions dues au beau sexe ! C'est ce que dévoile ici l'auteur. Loin de toute forme de féminisme enragé, on suivra le parcours de quelques scientifiques importantes qui ont par hasard en commun une même particularité : leur sexe. [less ▲]

Although rare, massive stars, being the main sources of ionizing radiation, chemical enrichment and mechanical energy in the Galaxy, are the most important objects of the stellar population. This review presents the many different aspects of the main tool used to study these stars, i.e. spectroscopy. The first part consists in an introduction on these objects and their physical properties (mass, wind, evolution, relation with their environment). Next, the spectral behaviour of single massive stars is investigated, in the visible as well as in the X-ray domain. Finally, the last part of this paper deals with massive binaries, especially those exhibiting a colliding wind phenomenon. [less ▲]

In our technological world, Science is everywhere and to participate to the public debates, citizens will need some basic scientific notions. Raising awareness of the public in Science is thus always worthwhile, even though only a small fraction of the audience will envisage a career in the field. Bringing science to the layman should even be a duty for scientists: we should not forget that we are paid by taxpayers, and are part of a public service; and besides, people tend to reject things that they do not understand - to get support, scientists need to enter the public arena and confront the crowd. Relying on attractive images and a timeless fascination, astronomy is particularly suited to do that. But what should a willing astronomer do to share (his/her) knowledge? There is certainly no definitive answer for that, but a few hints can still be given. Based on personal experience, this talk will present a few tips and things to avoid in three cases: animations (for kids and grown-ups), writing, and talking. [less ▲]

It is generally difficult to interest people to sciences, especially physics. However, astronomy has a great power of fascination, and can thus be used to attract people into the scientific world. Here in Liège, we are trying to develop several different aspects of astro-education: they will be detailed in this paper. For example, we organize interactive activities for primary schools, and also help high school students to consider a scientific career. Our undergraduate students also benefit from our experience: for example, they have the possibility to observe at a real observatory, they can train at ESA facilities,... The general public is also invited to discover astronomy and, through it, physics, thanks to several specific events. Finally, media, the links between the public and the researchers, are not forgotten: our astro-news service was specifically created for this purpose. [less ▲]

The Of?p spectral category was introduced by Walborn in 1972 to describe peculiar stars which possess intense emission lines of C III 4647,4650,4651. Recently, two of them, HD 108 and HD 191612, were found to display spectacular line profile variations in the visible domain: these stars apparently alternate between two different spectral states (O6-O8). To discover the origin of this intriguing behaviour, a multiwavelength campaign was undertaken. In this context, the analysis of the X-ray emission is especially important since it provides crucial information for constraining the nature of these peculiar objects and testing conflicting models. We are therefore carrying out high-quality XMM-Newton observations of these stars and we present the results of the data obtained up to now. [less ▲]
