A group of the CAB visits the Asbestos Center of Yebes


A group of researchers and engineers from the Center for Astrobiology (CSIC-INTA) visited the facilities of the Yebes Astronomical Center (Guadalajara).

The Asbestos Center of Yebes (CAY), dependent of the National Astronomical Observatory, is currently the most important technological development center of the National Geographic Institute, and is one of the ten fully Spanish scientific research centers classified as a Grand Scientific Facility. It is located about 70 km from Madrid, in the municipality of Yebes, in the province of Guadalajara, at an altitude of 980 m above sea level and has good conditions for a radio astronomy observation station.

A group of researchers from the Center for Astrobiology (CAB, CSIC-INTA) traveled to the CAY to visit its facilities. During the guided tour, they visited the astronomy classroom, the 40 m radio telescope, the anechoic chamber, the new 14 m radio telescope, the radome with the old 13.7 m radio telescope and the amplifier laboratories.
