Humain Radio Telescopes

Still in complete awe, we have to bring terrible news: Anne Vandersyppe, our Anne, died on July 31, 2019.

Are we there yet?...

A comparison of the current monthly solar radio flux values with those from previous solar cycle transits suggests that the next solar cycle minimum may take place during the summer of 2019.

Fair space weather for the Apollo 11 mission

Agora: a new supplement for JSWSC

The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate announces the launch of a new supplement titled "Agora". The Agora will be the place for the space weather community to discuss, evaluate and distribute non-traditional scientific output in the field of space science and space climate.


Fundamental Research

The STCE does Fundamental Research.

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.
