Acerca de la Cosmología
La Cosmología como ciencia empírica comenzó en los años 20 del pasado siglo. Desde entonces varios hitos observacionales han inspirado y sostenido el mejor modelo cosmológico que nos hemos podido dar.  Sin embargo la materia y la energía oscura, la masa de los neutrinos, y otros nuevos datos observacionales nos obligan a replantearnos algunas preguntas y explorar, quizás, otras aproximaciones a la pregunta de cómo se formó y evoluciona...

A complex network perspective on Delta Scuti stars
We apply horizontal visibility graphs (HVG) to study the complex network behavior for the delta Sct stars’ light curves observed by TESS. The delta Sct stars are pulsating stars with spectral types A0-F5 and intermediate masses between low-mass stars (≤ 1 Msun) and high-mass stars (≥ 2 Msun). They pulsate in low-order pressure modes and have dominant pulsation frequencies in the 5-80 d−1 range. The high amplitude delta Sct stars (called HADS),...

Dust in protoplanetary disks, (still) that great unknown
Planetary systems are a side effect in the formation of a star. Planets are believed to be just simply the last remaining of dusty circumstellar disks which is formed around the protostar at very early stages. Thus, understanding how planets are formed requires to understand how dust evolve in these disks. It is less than ten years that we have the possibility of mapping the dust distribution in protoplanetary disks with great detail with...

New possibilities for atmospheric analysis with Monte Carlo
In recent years, significant advancements have been made in scientific computing utilizing the Monte Carlo method, particularly at the intersection of two key communities: the heat transfer community and the computer graphics community. The first breakthrough is that the computation time required to solve radiative transfer becomes invariant, whether the ground is described by a single building or thousands of them, whether the 3D clouds are...

The art of astrophysical measurements: An elementary lecture on photon counting and S/N
Have you ever dared to understand how many photons are detected by your camera when you are pointing the telescope to the sky? Is the action of the spectrograph fully understood when analyzing those photons? Do typical image formation rules hold when studying the polarization of light? All these are a few examples of questions addressed by researchers when designing instruments, which are later constrained by technological capabilities. This...

Unraveling the Gamma-ray emission in radiogalaxies and their jets
Radio-galaxies are a minority among all extragalactic sources detected in gamma-rays, yet they have excellent potential to study particle acceleration and non-thermal emission in AGN jets. In contrast with blazars, which have jets aligned with the line-of-sight, radio-galaxies have a smaller Doppler boosting factors. The implications are important: First, the distance at which they are detectable in gamma-rays is smaller. Second, the thermal...

Coloquio SO: Spectroscopy's Role in Stellar Astrophysics
To characterize a star, the stellar fundamental parameters such as mass, radius, metal abundance, and effective temperature should be known. Direct measurements of these parameters, especially for single stars, are quite challenging, and indirect methods are often employed to obtain these characteristics. The most effective method for determining these parameters is spectroscopy, which is an analysis technique of spectra. It allows us to...

Laboratory Research on the Atmospheric Impact of Spacecraft Re-entry Debris: Perspectives and Future Challenges
The rapid growth of space debris, especially in Low Earth Orbit (LEO), poses a rising risk to both space operations and Earth's atmosphere. Debris fragments, even minuscule in size, can cause significant damage due to their high orbital speeds. To mitigate risks, controlled re-entry of debris is common practice, but this introduces a new concern: the increasing mass of human-made materials injected into the atmosphere. As satellites and rocket...

Journey into the Galactic Heart: Illuminating the Enigma of the Nuclear Star Cluster and the Nuclear Stellar Disc.
The innermost regions of most galaxies are characterised by the presence of extremely dense nuclear star clusters, which sometimes appear together with larger stellar structures known as nuclear stellar discs. Understanding the relation between nuclear star clusters and nuclear stellar discs is challenging due to the large distance towards other galaxies which limits their analysis to integrated light. In this context, the Milky Way’s centre,...

Outflows from low to high luminous AGNs
Outflows are believed to play a major role in the evolution of galaxies and are said to be ubiquitous within the active galactic nuclei (AGN) population. However, we still lack a comprehensive view of their properties and impact in their host galaxies and the surrounding medium. If we focus on the low luminosity part of the AGN family, in particular in low ionisation nuclear emission-line regions (LINERs), the impact of outflows is still largely...

Coloquio SO: Extracting stellar populations and (mainly) emission line information out of S-PLUS photometry
We present tests of a new method to simultaneously estimate stellar population and emission line (EL) properties of galaxies out of S-PLUS photometry. The technique uses the AlStar code, updated with an empirical prior which greatly improves its ability to estimate ELs using only the survey's 12 bands. The tests compare the output of (noise-perturbed) synthetic photometry of SDSS galaxies to properties derived from previous (STARLIGHT-based)...

SO Colloquium: The demographics of small exoplanets
The diversity of the exoplanet population is beyond our imagination. The more than 5000 known exoplanets vastly differ in mass, size, orbital period, dynamics, and host type. Demographic studies, however, aim to find patterns in the population that inform us about their origin, composition, and evolution. Among these features, perhaps the most surprising is the abundance of planets with no analog in the solar system, also known as sub-Neptunes....

SO Colloquium: The evolution of the accretion process: investigating the protostellar phase to constraints planet formation
The accretion process is responsible for the mass building during the star formation phase, but our knowledge of this phenomenon is still not totally understood. On one side, the magnetospheric accretion scenario describes the accretion on pre-main sequence (Class II/III) low-mass stars. However, most of the material is supposed to be accreted during the earliest stages, i.e. the protostellar phase (Class 0/I), when the forming star and its disk...

Studying magnetic fields, dynamics, and fundamental physics near a black hole with current and future mm-VLBI instruments
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) has imaged the black hole shadows of the supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy M87 (M87*) and at the center of the Milky Way (Sgr A*). Polarimetric imaging of M87* with the EHT enabled significantly stronger inferences on the black hole and accretion parameters than total intensity data alone. Geometric modeling was a central tool for studying the structure of M87* and Sgr A* in total intensity. In...

SO colloquio: Theoretical models for the formation and evolution of Ultra-Cool Dwarf planetary systems
Rocky planets located in the habitable zones around very low-mass objects are ideal targets for searching for life outside our Solar System. In order to better understand their formation and evolution, N-body simulations are needed. These simulations are developed assuming a star close to the substellar mass limit as the central object. The simulations include tidal and general relativistic effects that incorporate the contraction and evolution...

Off-centre supermassive black holes in bright central galaxies
Supermassive black holes (SMBHs) are believed to reside at the centre of massive galaxies such as brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs), the most massive galaxies which can be found in today's Universe. However, as BCGs experienced numerous galaxy mergers throughout their history, the central BH can be significantly kicked from the central region by these dynamical encounters. By combining the Illustris-TNG300 simulations and orbital integration...

SO colloquium: A Light in the Dark - Massive Star Birth Through Cosmic Time
Massive stars are important throughout the universe, but their formation remains poorly understood. I review current understanding of how massive stars form in our Galaxy, in particular examining observational tests of various predictions of Core Accretion and Competitive Accretion theories. Finally, I discuss how massive star formation may have been different in the very early universe and how the first stars may have become supermassive...

SO webloquio: The impact of stellar composition: from galactic chemical evolution to planet formation
The characterization of solar-type stars is fundamental for various fields in astrophysics, including exoplanet detection and the chemical evolution of our Galaxy. In particular, the determination of chemical abundances for stars at different metallicities and ages provides us with a key insight on how and when the various chemical elements were formed within the Galaxy. The chemical trends observed in different parts of the Galaxy (thin disk,...

Lo que debemos a los astrónomos del Egipto antiguo: una perspectiva desde la ciencia y la cultura
El Egipto antiguo fascina por sus monumentos y sus tesoros, y algunos de sus personajes figuran en el acervo colectivo. Sin embargo, en general, se ignora que Egipto también tuvo una contribución substancial a la ciencia, la astronomía incluida. Los filósofos griegos viajaban a Egipto en busca de sabiduría. Aquí analizaremos cómo un calendario gobernado por las inundaciones anuales del Nilo acabó convirtiéndose en el calendario que regula la...
