The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) leads a study that analyzes the role of gamma-ray halos around pulsars in order to understand how cosmic rays travel

 

Trojans are asteroids that share an orbit with a planet around its stable Lagrangian points, which are located sixty degrees ahead and behind the planet in its orbit. Widely studied on other planets, such as Jupiter, which has several thousand, only one has so far been found around the Earth

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) is leading a work that combines observations of space and ground-based radio telescopes to study the central regions of the galaxy OJ 287

 

 

On January 11, ESA's PLATO mission, in which the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates, received the green light to continue its development after successfully passing the review of critical milestones

 

 

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) leads a study based on data from Calar Alto Observatory (CAHA), showing the variability of the planetary nebula IC4997

 

The Oxygen found in the atmosphere of the hottest known exoplanet (IAA-CSIC) participates in the first discovery of oxygen atoms in the atmosphere of an exoplanet. The detection has been made using observations with the 3.5-metre telescope at Calar Alto Observatory.

In just a tenth of a second, a magnetar -a particularly magnetic type of neutron star- released energy equivalent to that produced by the Sun in 100,000 years. Its study in detail has revealed multiple pulses at the peak of the eruption, which will make it possible to understand these still little-known giant magnetic flares

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in the study of fifteen peculiar stars that have turned out to be double stars that, after sharing an envelope, lost a large part of their mass

 

Produced by the magnetic field, it is the first time that this structure has been observed at such far distances from the black hole. The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in the discovery

The Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) participates in the study of the giant planets of the V1298 Tau system, which in just twenty million years have already reached their final size. The finding has been possible thanks to radial velocity measurements from the HARPS-N spectrographs, at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (ORM), and from CARMENES, at the Calar Alto Observatory (CAHA)
