Explaining the origin of a type of galaxy

The breakthrough published in the prestigious journal Nature Astronomy was achieved by an international team of scientists led by José Benavides and Mario Abadi, from the National University of Córdoba (UNC) and CONICET, and Laura Sales, from the University of California, Riverside.

PISCIS: a citizen science tool for analysing astronomical images

A team from Instituto de Astronomía Teórica y Experimental (IATE), led by Vanessa Daza, Germán Alfaro and José Benavides, developed an interactive platform in which experts and non-experts can collaborate in the processing of astronomical data.

Study of magnetic fields generated by primordial black holes

Researchers from the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Astronomy (IATE) have participated in a theoretical study of the possibility that magnetic fields were generated from black holes that emerged in the early stages of the Universe.

Welcome to IATE

The Instituto de Astronomía Téorica y Experimental (IATE) es un instituto de investigación científica dependiente del Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET) and the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (UNC). The headquarters of the institute are located at the Observatorio Astronómico de Córdoba. The staff of the institute carry out research in astrophysics, both from an observational and theoretical point of view. Objects are studied on scales ranging from that of the objects in our solar system to the largest structures in the Universe.

At the IATE, there are Ph.Ds in the researcher career of CONICET, Ph.D and postdoctoral fellows, members of the support staff career of CONICET, contract staff, and Ph.D working at the institute.

IATE also stands out for the characterization of sites for the installation of great astronomical facilities in Argentine territory and of various activities that extend our research to society as a whole.
