    Observatorio Rubin revelará el misterio de las estrellas expulsadas de sus galaxias
    NSF's NOIRLab

    La luz intracúmulo, es decir el resplandor colectivo de innumerables estrellas despojadas de sus galaxias de origen y abandonadas a su suerte vagando por el inmenso espacio que hay entre las galaxias, es extremadamente tenue y difícil de detectar. Sin embargo, la próxima Investigación del Espacio Tiempo como Legado para la Posteridad (LSST) será el primer estudio astronómico en proveer a los científicos los datos necesarios para detectar luz intracúmulo en miles de cúmulos galácticos, revelando las claves acerca de la historia evolutiva del Universo a gran escala.

    Intracluster light, the collective glow of innumerable stars stripped from their home galaxies and left to wander vast intergalactic space, is incredibly faint and difficult to detect. Vera C. Rubin Observatory’s upcoming Legacy Survey of Space and Time will be the first astronomical survey to provide scientists with the data they need to detect intracluster light in thousands of galaxy clusters, unlocking clues to the evolutionary history of the Universe on large scales.

    La inmunoterapia aprovecha el sistema inmunitario del organismo para combatir el cáncer. El tratamiento con linfocitos T con receptor quimérico para el antígeno (tratamiento con linfocitos T-CAR) es una forma de inmunoterapia en la que los profesionales de atención médica extraen las células T de una persona (conocidas como linfocitos que participan en la respuesta del sistema inmunitario) y las modifican genéticamente para que produzcan receptores quiméricos para el antígeno. A continuación, estos linfocitos T-CARse reintroducen en el torrente sanguíneo del paciente, donde se dirigen a las células cancerosas y las destruyen.
