Astronautics

Astronautics covers an extremely wide range of scientific and technical studies, from the chemistry of propellant mixtures (pergols), the study of materials and fluid mechanics to experiments in space biology, physics and physics. astronomy without ignoring the disciplines developed above. Multi-disciplinary, astronautics represents a whole of great interest by the discoveries it entails in our …

Radioastronomy

It has been known since the discovery of Heinrich Hertz in 1887 that radio waves are of the same nature as light waves. In particular they propagate in a vacuum in a straight line (geodesic) at a constant speed of 299792.45 km / s. It is by their wavelength (or their frequency) that the hertzian …

The Equatorial Mount

It is enough to have spent a few seconds on the eyepiece of a so-called azimuthal instrument, mounted on a tripod, to be aware of the sidereal movement which causes the whole celestial vault in the opposite direction to the rotation of the Earth, causing all the stars from east to west. With manual retraction …

Solar Telescope

Around the world, about thirty observatories have dedicated at least one telescope to the study of the Sun. Given the atmospheric turbulence, it is almost impossible to use instruments over one meter in diameter unless you have a high altitude site or install adaptive optics. Also for the time being, the largest solar telescope is …
