A study involving the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) shows a kilonova as a source of heavy elements, including the precious 'rare earths'.

The work, published in Nature, highlights this type of explosive and extremely energetic phenomena as the ideal environment for the formation of metals heavier than iron and silver.

The Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) participates in both its technological development and its scientific return.

The mission will study Venus's core and atmosphere to understand its volcanic activity and climate and find out how this twin of Earth became so inhospitable.

The Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) leads a study that reveals, in unprecedented detail, a region of massive star formation

The Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) participates in the international collaboration that confirms the existence of a bright ring corresponding to the shadow of the black hole in the Messier 87 galaxy.

The stability of the diameter of the ring with respect to the data obtained in 2017 supports the conclusion that the black hole M87 is correctly described by the theory of general relativity.

As space agencies prepare to return to the Moon, scientific and engineering teams face the challenge of mitigating a major environmental risk: dust

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in the DUSTER project, which will study charged dust particles, which pose a serious risk to the health of human explorers and space instruments

An IAA-CSIC team leads a pioneering study that reveals the crucial role of galactic mergers in the chemical evolution of Ultraluminous Infrared Galaxies.

The detection has been made by the LST-1, the first LST telescope of the CTAO Observatory. The Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) is participating in the observations and data analysis.

Ghosts (or GHOSTs) are part of a family of events that, although related to thunderstorms, occur in the mesosphere, tens of kilometres above the clouds. The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) leads the first spectroscopic study of these infrequent and brief phenomena, which associates them with unexpected compounds, such as iron and nickel

At around 2:15 in the early hours of 12 December, the asteroid Leona will pass in front of the red supergiant star Betelgeuse, a very unusual event that will be visible to the naked eye. The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) has organised a campaign to observe the phenomenon, which will make it possible to study both the asteroid and the star's atmosphere

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in the discovery of a sixfold system with synchronised orbits, whose configuration shows that it has remained unchanged since its formation more than a billion years ago. The result has been possible thanks to an international collaboration with data from the CHEOPS (ESA) and TESS (NASA) satellites, as well as from the CARMENES instrument at Calar Alto Observatory
