Chilean Astronomers to search for Exoplanets

Funding approved for new project

Published 15th Nov 2017

The Center for Astro-Engineering at the Catholic University (UC) has been awarded a grant that will allow it to go ahead with its "High Resolution Spectrograph" to search for exoplanets from Chile.

The funding will allow the acquisition of a spectrograph for the project which will be run in conjunction with the University of Tokyo. The instrument is expected to be installed at an altitude of about 5,600 metres (18,300ft) in northern Chile - which would make it the largest and highest infrared observatory in the world.
