List of Science Cases

Basic Level      
  When the indicator is fully coloured, there is a whole set of material specifically developed for that level.
Intermediate Level  
  When the indicator is half coloured, the material from another level is recomended and perfectly suitable for this level. Give it a look!
Advanced Level  
  When the indicator has no color at all, that science case is not recomended for that level.
Super Hero Level  
     

 

 

 

THE VENUS-SUN DISTANCE  NEW VERSION!  (web tools to be updated)
Calculate the Venus-Sun distance using astronomical images from a Venus transit taken by the CESAR team. Students will learn about the movements in the Solar System and use trigonometry and parallax.
 
Keywords: Sun, SOHO, Transits, CESOSolar System Planets.

 

SUN'S ROTATION PERIOD  Basic level in 15min!*
Calculate the Sun's rotation period by tracking sunspotsStudents will understand how the Sun moves and will know how to calculate velocities by tracking targets in time-spaced images. 
 
Keywords: Sun, SOHO, CESO. 
 

 

SUN'S DIFFERENTIAL ROTATION  Basic level in 15min!*
Calculate the Sun's differential rotation by tracking sunspots at differnt latitudes. Students will learn about the movement of the Sun and how to calculate velocities by tracking targets in time-spaced images.
 
Keywords: Sun, SOHO, CESO. 

 

JUPITER AND ITS MOONS  Will be revised soon!
Plan an observation, calculate Jupiter's mass and Jupiter Moon's period. Students will learn about Kepler Laws and how to obtain data out of astronomical observations.
 
Keywords: Júpiter, Kepler Laws, Solar System Planets.

 

THE SECRETS OF THE GALAXIES  Will be revised soon!
Explore in ESAsky ESA Mission's data and clasify the galaxies you observe. Students will learn about galaxies structures and how to extract data out of astronomical images.
 
Keywords: Galaxies, ESAsky. 

 

EXPLORING THE INTERSTELLAR MEDIUM  Will be revised soon!
Explore in ESAsky ESA Mission's data and study the ISM. Students will learn about the Structures in the Inter Stellar Medium and how to extract data out of astronomical images.
 
Keywords: ISM, ESAsky.
