Netflix premieres ‘Watch Beyond the Stars: Photographing a Black Hole’ with the participation of the IFT

After its premiere in May 2021, the film Watch Beyond the Stars: Photographing a Black Hole was released this week on Netflix.
Featuring several IFT scientists, the documentary aims to be a faithful portrait of the Spanish scientific community, including the team that took the first black hole photograph ever.

James Webb: the clearest image to date of the early universe

The James Webb Space Telescope, the most powerful to be placed in orbit, has revealed the clearest image to date of the early universe, going back 13 billion years, US space agency NASA said Monday.

LHC run 3 at record energies begins today

A new data collection period begins today, Tuesday, July 5, for the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, after more than three years of work updates, improvements and maintenance. The beams have already been flowing around CERN's accelerator complex since April, when the LHC and its injectors were turned on.

Higgs boson discovery is 10 years old

The discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider ten years ago, and progress made since then, has enabled the scientific community to make enormous progress in understanding the universe.
