The discovery of two new giant galaxies in the radio emission suggests that many more of these impressive structures are about to be revealed, according to an international study with the collaboration of the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA).
Part of the Universe we cannot see, but we feel it. More surprisingly, that is almost everything that exists, but we don't know what it is. Let's try to touch this phantom side of the Universe. Session with Tiago Barreiro, of IA and Universidade Lusófona.
