Based on the use of hyperspectral images and data processing with advanced statistics and artificial intelligence, it has been successfully applied in two synthetic models of SARS-CoV-2. The research, which continues in humans, has been funded by the Carlos III Health Institute and has made it possible to patent a technique capable of simultaneously analyzing numerous samples without the need for contact or reagents

The Perseids are produced by the impact in our atmosphere of fragments of the meteoroid cloud of Comet 109P / Swift-Tuttle, and are also recorded on the surface of the Moon. During the peak, around August 11, up to fifty perseids per hour can be observed in places away from light pollution

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) is involved in developing a theory that supports the hypothesis that planets affect the Sun's magnetic activity. It shows how the small influence of the planets could set a rhythm in a system like the Sun that, if confirmed, would allow events such as solar storms to be predicted more accurately 

The IAA-CSIC participates in two articles that disseminate the discovery of the shortest gamma ray burst (GRB) produced by the death of a massive star ever detected



The Sombrero galaxy, a strange hybrid between a spiral and an elliptical galaxy, has been observed in detail to look for clues about its formation process. A large elliptical structure surrounding the galaxy, the product of a minor merger with another galaxy, has been characterised, but the origin of its shape remains unknown

The EHT collaboration, in which the IAA-CSIC participates, shows in unique detail the heart of Centaurus A, from which gigantic jets of matter emerge, giving it its characteristic appearance.




Its abundance in neutral hydrogen suggests that it is a group of galaxies in the process of formation



The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) leads the detection of what, according to the data, is the most common type of planetary systems around dwarf stars, the most common in the Milky Way



CAIRT, in whose scientific design the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) has participated, is among the four proposals selected by the European Space Agency for the feasibility study of the Earth Explorer programme. The mission will focus on processes combining atmospheric circulation, composition, space weather and regional climate change, and will provide critical observations not available with existing or planned satellites



The GALACTICNUCLEUS project will make it possible to study the stellar population surrounding the supermassive black hole at the Galactic Centre in unprecedented detail. The work, led by the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia, offers the most extensive census of stars in the Galactic Core recorded to date
