Portada de la charla de Guillermo López en el PoS 2022

Esta vez nos toca evento de divulgación. Recientemente, uno de los coordinadores de nuestro grupo de investigación, Guillermo López-Reyes, ha sido invitado a dar una charla sobre exploración espacial en el Pint of Science de Valladolid de este año. Titulada «Explorando el sistema solar: en busca del origen de la vida», podréis verla, si estáis […]

It is with deep sorrow that our research group received the news of the passing of our former colleague Antonio Sansano. Antonio was, for many years, one the supports of Exomars project at the University of Valladolid, and one of our fellow researchers. Last monday, at age 47, Antonio passed away in Valladolid. Last years

We evaluated the effectiveness of the ExoMars Raman laser spectrometer (RLS) to determine the degree of serpentinization of olivine-rich units on Mars. We selected terrestrial analogs of martian ultramafic rocks from the Leka Ophiolite Complex (LOC) and analyzed them with both laboratory and flight-like analytical instruments. We first studied the mineralogical composition of the samples

SuperCam is a highly integrated remote-sensing instrumental suite for NASA’s Mars 2020 mission. It consists of a co-aligned combination of Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), Time-Resolved Raman and Luminescence (TRR/L), Visible and Infrared Spectroscopy (VISIR), together with sound recording (MIC) and high-magnification imaging techniques (RMI). They provide information on the mineralogy, geochemistry andmineral context around the
