Título: Primera luz de CARMENES, el cazador de exotierras

Resumen: Astrobiology, in the exo/xenobiology sense, studies life outside the Earth, either in our Solar System or in planets around other stars. While CAB staff is used to missions to Solar System targets, some CAB astronomers are also involved in the construction of an instrument for a ground telescope that may find the first uncontrovertible exoearth in the habitable zone of a star in the solar neighbourhood. The name of that instrument is CARMENES, and its acronym, 'Calar Alto high-Resolution search for M dwarfs with Exoearths with Near-infrared and optical Échelle Spectrographs', is self-explanatory. After six years of hard design and construction, CARMENES is currently being commissioned at the German-Spanish 3.5 m Calar Alto telescope in Almería. Well in advance of its American, Japanese and Canadian-French competitors, it will be in January 2016 the first and only ultra-stable high-resolution spectrograph covering the red optical and near-infrared. As its co-project manager, I will give a summary of the homonymous CARMENES instrument, the international consortium that has built it, and the science project that will be carried with it during guaranteed time observations.
