University of La Laguna (ULL) Spain

Overview

The University of La Laguna (Universidad de La Laguna) was created in 1792 and since then it has continually aspired towards excellence in teaching, research and knowledge transfer as part of its efforts and commitment towards building a better society for all.

We offer a wide selection of official undergraduate degrees and master’s degrees that, together with our range of doctorate programs, cover all subject areas: Experimental Sciences, Health Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities, and Engineering. In addition to the aforementioned, we also have an extensive course catalogue that includes the University’s own non-official programs and also our university extension courses. Furthermore, we offer a rich mix of cultural activities.

Although the University is firmly faced towards the future, we still value the history and traditions of the institution. They have served to instill both social and professional leadership skills in our students, empowering them with invaluable skills that are of the utmost importance for the development of the Canary Island archipelago and for their participation in dealings at national and international level. People make places, and it is the people who have either currently or previously formed part of the university as students, teachers, researchers, admin staff or support staff that make it a great institution.

Today, the University of La Laguna is laying the foundations needed in order to be a key actor on the global stage. We are mindful that higher education is crucial for both personal and social wellbeing, and that the promotion of knowledge is the best way to ensure peace and international development.

X-ray-emitting binary system likely to have a black hole

A binary system emitting X-rays is probably harbouring a black hole, spectral measurements indicate.

Astronomical systems known as low-mass X-ray binaries consist of a neutron star or black hole that is stripping material from a companion star. About 60 of those discovered to date are suspected to have black holes. But of these, only one third have actually been confirmed to harbour a black hole.

Now, a team of researchers from the University of La Laguna found that a low-mass X-ray binaries discovered in May 2021 has a compact object with a mass of three to ten times that of the Sun, which points to it being a black hole.

The team arrived at this conclusion by analysing the optical and infrared spectroscopic observations during the outburst of X-ray that first alerted astronomers to the object’s existence.
