Ellos Hablan de Ellas

Andrés Castellanos, Ricardo García, José Ángel Martín Gago, Marcos Zayat
Investigadores del Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid

Como cada año el ICMM dedica el colloquium del mes de febrero a la celebración del 11 de Febrero, día internacional de la mujer y la niña en la Ciencia. Este año 4 investigadores de nuestro centro nos hablarán de la Ciencia que desarrollaron investigadoras destacadas en diferentes áreas científicas: Rosalin Franklin (Química y Cristalógrafa), Margarita Salas (Bioquímica), Mildred Dresselhaus (Física y Nanotecnóloga) y Rita Levi Montalcini (Neuróloga).

Con este colloquium el ICMM quiere sumarse a la multitud de iniciativas que se van a realizar en estos días en el mundo con el fin de combatir las barreras de género en el ámbito tecnológico y científico, fomentando el crecimiento en igualdad.

From the origin of the Universe to the detection of exoplanets: The Nobel Prize in Physics 2019

J. Miguel Mas Hesse
Centro de Astrobiología (CSIC-INTA)

The Royal Swedish Academy has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Physics 2019 to three scientists working in different topics, from the Origin of the Universe to the Planets orbiting around other stars. James Peebles made very relevant and direct participation to the prediction of the properties of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) produced after the Big Bang, and specifically to the identification of its anisotropies as the seed from the big structures of the actual Universe were emerged. This CMB would be discovered by R. Penzias y A. Wilson in the middles ’60s of the XXth century. On the other hand, in 1995, Michel Mayor and his Ph.D. student, at that time, Didier Queloz, discovered the first planet orbiting around a Solar-type star. There was a conviction about the existence of planetary systems similar to our solar system but it wasn’t until the Mayor and Queloz work that this issue was proved.
Nowadays, more than 4000 exoplanets are known, a lot of them with conditions that could allow a life analogous to the one on Earth, and their detection will be the main goal in the next 10 years.
In this seminar, we will review the advances in both research fields and their impact on the development of Knowledge. Besides being very different results, both fields provide a new perspective on the place that humans have in the Cosmos.
