The IFT participates at Researchers' Night of the UAM with a gymkhana about physics

'Dare to investigate: understand the world to save it' encourages you to find the treasure using your wits and with the help of physics.
From 5:00 pm in the main square of the Cantoblanco Campus.

The CSIC centers in Cantoblanco Campus bring science to the streets with a mega event and concert at the 12 de Octubre Hospital

New IFT video: Does the universe rotate as a whole?

Planets, stars, galaxies... it seems like everything is spinning in the universe. But does the universe as a "whole" spin?

Muon g-2 doubles down with latest measurement, explores uncharted territory in search of new physics

Physicists from Fermilab now have a brand-new measurement of a property of the muon called the anomalous magnetic moment that improves the precision of their previous result by a factor of 2.
