Lovejoy - unprecedented EUV images and science (EN-NL-FR)

The SWAP telescope onboard the Belgian-led satellite PROBA2 has obtained some of the best-ever photographs of a comet passing near the sun. Comet Lovejoy flew through the solar corona, just above the sun's surface, near midnight on December 16, 2011. This is only the second time ever that a comet has been observed in an extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) solar telescope.

PICARD - Launch (NL-FR)

Nu dinsdag, 15 juni 2010, wordt de Franse microsatelliet PICARD gelanceerd met de Russisch-Oekraïnse DNEPR-raket vanuit Yasni. Het gaat over een Frans-Belgische satelliet van de Myriade-familie met twee Belgische instrumenten, SOVAP en BOSS. De instrumenten zullen heel precieze en simultane metingen uitvoeren van verschillende karakteristieke eigenschappen van de Zon en hun variaties in de tijd.

SDO - first light (NL-FR)

Ce 21 avril 14:00EDT (20:00 heure belge), la NASA tiendra une confŽrence de presse afin de montrer les premières images spectaculaires prises par la mission solaire baptisée 'Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO)' ou 'Observatoire de la dynamique solaire', qui a été lancée le 11 février dernier depuis Cap Canaveral en Floride.
SDO va fournir des observations solaires d'une qualité incomparable, produisant par là-même une quantité énorme de données, afin de comprendre la météo complexe et les tempêtes de notre étoile.
