CAB-masivas contributes to ASTRO2020

The US National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine carried out the Astro2020 Decadal Survey on Astronomy and Astrophysics, in order to identify the big research challenges of the next decade, and the technology needed to tackled them. CAB-masivas led a white paper on metal-poor massive stars, crucial objects to understand star formation accross Cosmic History and other relevant objects such as Gravitational Wave progenitors. The next breakthrough on metal-poor massive stars requires a large telescope in space with UV capabilities, such as LUVOIR.

Studying massive stars in galaxies with ever decreasing metal content is one of the priority lines of reserach of CAB-masivas.
