Found a system formed by a white dwarf star and a small object, possibly a planet, so close that the second is scorched by the star's radiation, causing its atmosphere to evaporate



M33, also known as the Triangle galaxy, is the third largest galaxy in the Local Group, after Andromeda and the Milky Way. The finding is part of the search for the "lost satellites", which tries to resolve the discrepancy between the galaxy formation models and the observations of the Local Group galaxies

The discovery of numerous very low surface brightness galaxies in the environment of NGC 1052 provides a crucial clue to the debate about the lack of dark matter in some galaxies of this group. The new data points to the existence of a group of galaxies closer than NGC 1052, to which these anomalous galaxies would belong, and the proximity would solve the problem

Scientists from the IAA-CSIC are involved in the discovery of a system formed by a white dwarf star and a planet similar to Jupiter.
The discovery, published in 'Nature', shows that planets can survive the death of their star.


The study only includes data from satellites, very limited for the detection of blue light (the most polluting), so that the real increase can amount to 270% globally. The investigation reveals the seriousness of a problem that, according to experts, will worsen if the draft Royal Decree for energy efficiency is approved according to the current proposal

Chinese and Japanese texts documented the appearance of a supernova in the year 1181, and now the remnant of that explosion is located



This virtual creation offers the possibility of moving forwards and backwards through the history of the universe, thus allowing the evolution of its structure to be studied on a large scale.

The simulation, which has been developed in collaboration with the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC), can be consulted free of charge in the cloud.

The IAA-CSIC heads one of the eleven articles that make up a special issue of the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics on the results of LOFAR
