A history rich in scientific and technological collaborations that has led to numerous discoveries in the fields of astronomy and astrophysics.
This prize is awarded by the L'Oréal Foundation to her for the research she conducted during her PhD on the Trappist-1 system at the Exotic Lab of the ULiège and on the JWST telescope during her post-doctorate at the CEA at Paris-Saclay.
University of Liège researchers discover a new planetary system around a particularly small and cool star.
This telescope has been designed to answer essential questions about the Universe and to make revolutionary discoveries in astronomy. The University of Liege and its researchers are involved in this ambitious scientific space mission.
Just five years ago, astronomers led by Michaël Gillon, researcher at the University of Liège revealed the discovery of one of the most fascinating exoplanetary systems ever observed.
Researchers at ULiège have demonstrated for the first time the presence of free iron and nickel atoms in the very cold atmospheres of comets.
The prize is awarded for his pioneering research in exoplanetology and astrobiology, including the discovery of the TRAPPIST-1 exoplanetary system.
Precise measurements reveal that the exoplanets of the system discovered by ULiège researchers have remarkably similar densities, which provides new clues about their compositions.
This rare discovery has been made by to the telescopes of SPECULOOS, a project initiated and led by the University of Liège.
The astrophysicist from ULiège is awarded this prize notably for the important role she played in the discovery of the TRAPPIST-1 planetary system.
These SpaceX satellites could damage astronomical data if they cross one of the areas of the sky observed by ground-based telescopes, such as those of the SPECULOOS project.
Last arrived in the SPECULOOS constellation and located in the heart of the Teide Observatory, this new telescope will allow researchers to extend their hunt for habitable exoplanets to the northern hemisphere.
