List of Science Cases

Basic Level      
  When the indicator is fully coloured, there is material specifically developed for that level.
Intermediate Level  
  When the indicator is half-coloured, the material from another level may be appropriated for this level. Give it a look!
Advanced Level  
  When the indicator has no colour at all, the Science Case is not recomended for that level.
Super Hero Level  
     

 

 

 

THE VENUS-SUN DISTANCE  UNDER REVIEW - AVAILABLE SOON
Calculate the Venus-Sun distance using astronomical images of a Venus transit in front of the Sun, taken by the CESAR team. You will learn about the motion of planets in the Solar System, and how to measure distances using triangles.
 
Keywords: Sun, SOHO, Transits, CESOSolar System

 

THE SUN'S ROTATION PERIOD  All levels in 15min!*  
Measure the Sun's rotational period by tracking sunspotsYou will learn about the Sun's motion and how to estimaate speed by tracking targets in time-separated images. 
 
Keywords: Sun, SOHO, CESO
 

 

THE SUN'S DIFFERENTIAL ROTATION  Super Hero Level Available!
Measure the Sun's differential rotation by tracking sunspots at different latitudes. SYou will learn about the Sun's motion and how to estimaate speed by tracking targets in time-separated images.
 
Keywords: Sun, SOHO, CESO

 

JUPITER AND ITS MOONS  Will be revised soon!
Plan an observation, and calculate Jupiter's mass and the orbital periods of Jupiter's major moons.  You will learn about Kepler's Laws and how to get data from astronomical observations.
 
Keywords: Jupiter, Kepler's Laws, Solar System

 

Explore in ESASky and clasify the galaxies you observe. You will learn about the structure of galaxies and how to extract information from astronomical images.
 
Keywords: Galaxies, ESASky

 

Explore several regions using ESASky to look for evidence of the interstellar medium. You will learn about the structure and properties of the ISM and how to extract information from astronomical images.
 
Keywords: ISM, ESASky
