'Astrophysical Instrumentation', an audiovisual tour of the technology and engineering developed at the IAC

16/02/2017
Astrophysics is one of the areas of knowledge in which advances in investigation and research are most closely intertwined. To reach further out to detect fainter and fainter objects, and to disentangle their properties are the motives for developing bigger and bigger telescopes, and more and more powerful instruments. The IAC, a Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence, has produced a new video - ASTROPHYSICAL INSTRUMENTATION- with the aim of showing how we meet the technical challenges presented by this science. >> Read more

'Planetary Systems', second video of the 'IAC Researches' series

23/10/2015
“Planetary Systems” is the second chapter of an audiovisual series produced by the IAC in which this center explains its main research lines. In this video, scientists and engineers tell us the keys on the study of exoplanets (planets orbiting stars other than the Sun) and the small bodies (asteroids and comets) in the Solar System, an intellectual and technological unprecedented adventure which will answer questions such as: Is the Earth unique? Is there life on other planets? >> Read more

'Solar Physics', first video of the 'IAC Researches' series

31/07/2015
The IAC, Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence, has produced five videos with the aim of showing, in a clear and didactic way, its main lines of research. These audiovisual films present the scientific value of the research conducted at the center, its capacity and experience in the development of instrumentation and technology projects, and the quality of its staff. The research line 'Solar Physics' is the first to be presented. The realization of these videos has been coordinated by the Communication and Scientific Culture Unit (UC3) of the IAC, and has been sponsored by the Severo Ochoa Program. >> Read more
