The Universe Online

The Universe Online is a series of events accessible through the internet with your computer or mobile device.

We share the Universe through different formats, such as talks or quizzes. In these sessions, everyone is invited to ask questions, answer to challenges and participate in games. The sessions are recorded on YouTube, so you can watch again anytime.

The Phantom Universe

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.

What is hidden in the dark sky

What is hidden beyond the edge of the light, in the darkest areas of the sky? Which frontiers of the unknown await astronomers there, and what challenges have yet to be overcome? Session with Fernando Buitrago, of the University of Valhadolid and IA.

Searching for New Worlds

In the next session of "The Universe Online", you will have the opportunity to talk to IA researchers that are on the frontline of the search for a new "Earth".

Searching for another Earth

Learn how astronomers detect planets orbiting other stars, and how they can know, despite the distance, if any of them is similar to Earth, with Pedro Figueira, of ESO and IA (in Portuguese).
