Astronomy and Astrophysics

The group is working in two main investigation lines. The High Energies lines studies X-Ray binary stars, and the Planetary Astronomy line is focused on the physical-mathematics models development of the cascade colisions processes.

The group participates in the ESA INTEGRAL satellite design and building (International Gamma Ray Astrophysics Laboratory), and collaborate in international projects oriented to the Trans-Neptunians objets discovery and follow-up, and dwarves planets search.
