11:00 a.m. ( ARG) – Inauguration of the QUBIC Integration Laboratory at CNEA Northwest Regional.
With the presence of the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation of the Nation, Lic. Daniel Filmus, the Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Technology of the Province of Salta, Mag. Matias Canepa, the President of the CONICET, Dr. Ana Franchi, Mrs. President of CNEA, Dr. Adriana Serquis and the representatives of the QUBIC Board of Directors in Argentina, Drs. Alberto Etchegoyen and Gustavo Romero, the QUBIC Integration Laboratory was inaugurated.
This is a fundamental step for the installation of the instrument that seeks to analyze the traces of the primordial gravitational waves, which occurred 13.8 billion years ago, linked to the moment of universal inflation.
