A Column by Manuel Aravena – The Future of Astronomy: The Invisible Universe in Infrared Waves

Manuel Aravena – Emol May 9, 2024 Although we have built much of our astronomical knowledge through observations of “visible” light (that which we see with our eyes), this corresponds to only a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Most of the radiation coming from the Universe cannot be seen with optical telescopes like Galileo’s, …

Por primera vez un proyecto liderado desde Chile obtiene horas de observación “a gran escala” en ALMA

La iniciativa denominada “CRISTAL” contará con cerca de 150 horas, buscando revelar cómo son algunas de las galaxias más distantes y tempranas conocidas y cómo éstas evolucionaron en las que se ven en el universo local. El observatorio ALMA otorgó cerca de 150 horas de observación al proyecto CRISTAL, la primera iniciativa liderada desde Chile …

UDP astronomers obtain the deepest ALMA observations in the Hubble UDF

An international group of astronomers has used the ALMA observatory to obtain an inventory of molecular gas and dust in distant galaxies at unprecedented depth in the iconic Hubble Ultra-Deep Field (H-UDF), one of the best-studied regions of the sky. The final results are being presented in a series of papers in today’s Astrophysical Journal. …

Fierce Winds Quench Intense Star Formation in a Very Distant Galaxy

Dr. Manuel Aravena from the Astronomy Nucleus of UDP detected with a team of astronomers the most-distant galactic “wind” of molecules ever observed, seen when the universe was only one billion years old. The paper, published in Science, is summarised in the ALMA press release below. Astronomers (including Manuel Aravena from the Núcleo de Astronomía), using ALMA, …
