25/10/2017Prof. Gabriel Martinez Pinedo key in the understanding of the production process of heavy elements of the Universe

The detection of the gravitational wave GW170817 produced by the merger of two neutron stars and the electromagnetic signals associated to it has been a breakthrough for many areas of Physics.

Multidark Galaxies 25/10/2017Astronomers create publicly available Virtual Universe

The Universe is filled with an immeasurable number of galaxies that themselves are accumulations of billions of stars. Understanding how these 'islands in the universe’ formed and evolved and how they are distributed throughout the Universe is central to the field of Cosmology. Luckily, we now live in an era where both ground-­‐ and space-­‐based telescopes are being designed to study the Universe out to unprecedented distances, peering back billions of years to when the Universe was an infant. But the interpretation of these data requires theoretical models. As such, astronomers generate model universes, where galaxies are simulated, which may act as a test bed for the assessment of theories. However, such virtual universes are computationally expensive, numerically challenging, and often lack the sheer number and details of the galaxies we observe.
