Humain Radio Telescopes
A stretched coronal hole

Once again, a coronal hole (CH) is making the headlines!

Nelson, 12y asks 'How does the house of the ISS look like?'

How does the floor plan of the International Space Station looks like? Where is the bathroom, toilet, bedroom, gym, …? Are they connected with corridors? Is there a first floor, second floor, third floor?

STCE Workshop

On 31 January, the STCE Workshop "Geomagnetic storms and solar eruptions: from Sun to Earth" took place in the cozy meeting room of the RMI.

The Moon in sight

This is an exceptional picture of the moon. Because it is made with a solar telescope!

Public Outreach

Open DoorsThe STCE does public outreach during the STCE Annual Meeting and the Open Doors of the Space Pole in Uccle.

One of the highlights of the Open Doors is always a visit to the Solar Dome. A small introductory presentation is first given in the corridor of the SIDC. Skilled observers and space weather forecasters explain in laymen terminology what sunspots are, how they are observed, why these observations are so important, and how solar eruptions affect us and our technology. Then, the small groups of 10-15 people are guided stairs towards the top of the solar dome. There, the various solar telescopes are shown and their specific applications are discussed. Weather permitting, the visitors can also make solar observations using a projected solar image from the white light solar telescope. During and after the visit, there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions to the guides.
