Visiting the Royal Observatory of Belgium

26 May

Today was the ‘open doors day’ event of the Royal Observatory of Belgium. It was exciting to witness the history of modern astronomy in Belgium that went back to more than 100 years. I was also glad to see colleagues from Space Applications Services and examine the 1:3 scaled model of SOLAR, whose smooth 7/24 operation is ensured by some of those colleauges who go to work at B.USOC. (SOLAR deserved my special attention at this event because a subset of its telemetry data set is utilized in CUBIST project that I work on.)

You can enjoy the slideshow of photos I took today below:
