The NANOK expedition

Two Belgian adventurers collaborate with STCE scientists during an untypical triathlon in Greenland in April 2022: 600 km with skis and a pulka, 1000 km sea kayaking and 1 km vertical rock ascent. Nanok is a polar bear in the Inuit culture.

Two active regions, three CMEs

Two sunspot regions took care of this week's solar activity by producing three flares and associated CMEs.

Quo vadis, European Space Weather community?

A group of European space weather actors proposes to open a discussion on the organisation and sustainability of the European Space Weather community and its assets in the (near) future.

One CME a day... keeps the SWx forecaster busy!

Solar activity is gradually increasing. From 20 till 23 February, there was 1 CME each day. Only the first one had an earth-directed component, the other CMEs were clearly directed away from Earth or farside events.


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.
