IAC publishing

The Science Communication and Culture Unit (UC3) is responsible for the outreach publications and material of the IAC. It seeks in this way to keep citizens informed of the various activities that the IAC organizes and to bring them closer to the fascinating science of Astronomy.

The IAC publishes regularly:

  • Popular magazines (Paralajes,...).
  • Memoria and reports.
  • A Blog "Vía Láctea, S / N" and Social Networks.
  • Factsheets and brochures about the facilities of the Canary Islands Observatories and scientific, technological, educational and outreach activities.

  • Prints of astronomical images and installations.
  • Astronomical calendars.
  • Own production books & didactic units.
  • Videos.
