Galaxies are the result of an evolutionary process started thousands of million years ago, and their history is coded in their distinct components. The CALIFA project is intended to decode galaxies’ history in a sort of galactic archaeology, using Integral Field Spectroscopy through 3D observations of a sample of six hundred galaxies. A second data release corresponding to two hundred galaxies was open very recently and now the project passed its halfway point with important results behind. This talk will present the CALIFA project and its current stage and highlights.
