Astrophysics Research Institute

One of the world's leading authorities in astronomy and astrophysics

Our work encompasses a comprehensive programme of observational and theoretical research, telescope operation and instrument development, academic learning and outreach activities.

We are providing world-leading research using data gathered from observing facilities across the globe and predictions from supercomputer simulations. We own, operate and maintain the world’s largest fully robotic telescope – the Liverpool Telescope, sited on La Palma in the Canary Islands.
