Elena Máñez Rodríguez, the Head of the Department of Economy, Knowledge and Employment of the Canary Government paid a visit this morning to the headquarters of the IAC in La Laguna, together with Carlos Andrés Navarro Martínez, the Director of the Canary Agency of Research, Innovation and the Information Society (ACIISI) accompanied by Rafael Rebolo López and Casiana Muñoz Tuñón, the Director and Deputy Director of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias.
During their visit to the installations of the IAC they were informed of the current situation of the IAC and of the Canary Observatories. Máñez will also be present at the annual meeting of the Governing Council of the IAC which will take place next month in La Laguna.
The latest advances in the Standard Model of Particle Physics, and their consequences for problems such as that of dark matter have been presented
HC2NP2019, the second conference on "Hadronic Contributions to New Physics Searches" organized by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) in Puerto de la Cruz brought together, for a week, international experts in particle, nuclear, and atomic physics. At the meeting the latest advances in experimental checks on the "Standard Model of Particle Physics" were discussed, among them dark matter, the origin of flavour structures, and the conservation of charge symmetry in the strong interaction.

An international team of astronomers, in which the researcher from the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias and the Universidad de La Laguna David Jones participates, has discovered giant spots on the surface of extremely hot stars hidden in stellar clusters. Not only are these stars plagued by magnetic spots, some also experience superflare events, explosions of energy several million times more energetic than similar eruptions on the Sun. The findings, published in Nature Astronomy, help astronomers better understand these puzzling stars and open doors to resolving other elusive mysteries
The IAC will be participating in the Spanish Small Satellites International Forum 2020
A group of scientists and engineers from IACTEC Espacio, of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC), will participate in the Second Spanish Small Satellites International Forum 2020 (SSIF) which will take place on 25th, 26th and 27th pf February in Málaga.The personnel from IACTEC-Espacio will present three studies on the development of technology which will help improve the working of nanosatellites as well as having a stand which will show off the developments and capacity of IACTEC.
