Periodic Oscillations in LASCO Coronal Mass Ejection Speeds: Space Seismology

Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are energetic expulsions of organized magnetized plasma from the Sun. They are intensively studied because of their significant impact on Earth. The first CME was discovered in 1971 using the seventh Orbiting Solar Observatory (OSO-7). The longest series of observations have been carried out by the Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph (LASCO) on board the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) mission.

Jagiellonian University with its own space mission under ERC grant!

The European Research Council has awarded 3 mln € to dr Michał Drahus for the HYADES project, under which a dedicated space telescope will be built to observe hydrogen and deuterium around small bodies in the Solar System. The goal is to determine the origin of water on our planet and to search for new and previously unknown water reservoirs in the Solar System and other planetary systems. The five-year project will be carried out at the Department of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science at the Jagiellonian University. Więcej
