The Norwegian Centre of Excellence researching on the active Sun.
Håkon Dahle (ITA/UiO) and his international team observed straight into the bright and hot heart of a galaxy 11 billion years old in no less than 12 multiple, gravitationally lensed images. The finding casts light onto a crucial era in our universe’s history: the epoch of reionization.
First direct observation of elusive waves reveals the energy channels in the solar atmosphere
Feb. 18, 2020 12:24 PM
For the first time torsional Alfvén waves have been directly observed in the solar corona by a team of researchers from the University of Oslo and the University of Warwick. The discovery sheds light on the origin of magnetic waves and their role in the heating of the Sun’s outer atmosphere, the corona.
"The Sciene of EST" ep. 4: It is raining in the Sun’s atmosphere too!
Feb. 12, 2020 12:04 PM
Coronal rain is one of the most striking features of the solar atmosphere. With the higher resolution of the European Solar Telescope, solar physicists will better understand their structure and formation.
The "Science of EST" ep.3: Spicules
Jan. 21, 2020 2:26 PM
We need the extreme capabilities of the European Solar Telescope in order to fully understand the role of spicules in the mass transport and heating of the outer solar atmosphere.
