The new infrastructure, which will be presented at an event at the CSIC, will have a mirror with a diameter of 4.2 meters and a height of 44 metres, and will be the largest solar telescope in Europe. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2024 at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, on the island of La Palma, and it could be operational in 2029

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) studies in depth a sample of LINERs, the least luminous type of active galaxy, and finds that half of them produce gas outflows

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in the discovery of very high-energy gamma rays from a recurrent nova in the Milky Way. The result, published today in Nature Astronomy, identifies novae as a new type of very high-energy gamma-ray source

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in the discovery of the radio emission produced by a galactic collision

 

The Hubble space telescope sets a new record by capturing the light from a star that shone in the first billion years after the Big Bang. The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) is involved in the discovery, which provides a detailed view of the dawn of the universe

 

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in the X-ray analysis of R Aquarii, a double star formed by a red giant star and a white dwarf. The system shows a very complex morphology, with a bipolar S-shaped jet emerging from the white dwarf and an extensive nebula with filaments and cavities

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in the study with the ALMA radiotelescope (Chile) of comet C/2014 UN271 Bernardinelli-Bernstein, which determined its size and albedo, or surface reflectivity. With 137 kilometres, it is the largest known comet, and perhaps one of the most pristine

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) leads the study of the binary star SVS 13, still in its embryonic phase. Astronomers have observed primordial material that may be giving birth to three planetary systems around a binary star

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in MASCOT, a large-scale study of the cold gas in galaxies, an essential element for understanding how galactic evolution works

 

 

The IAA-CSIC leads a study that reveals the almost circular shape of Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole located in the center of the Milky Way. The shape indicates that the axis of rotation of the flow of matter surrounding the black hole (or a possible jet) may be pointing toward Earth
