The ASO-S satellite of the Advanced Space-Based Solar Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences is scheduled to be launched in early October

IT House reported on August 29 that the Advanced Space-Based Solar Observatory (ASO-S) satellite factory approval meeting was held in Beijing last week, and a satellite expedition ceremony was held to discuss the satellite transportation plan, launch site work plan, flight control preparation and organization. Management and other work to make deployment and arrangements. According to the arrangement, the ASO-S satellite and the supporting CZ-2D Y55 carrier rocket will arrive at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in early September, and it is planned to be launched in early October. IT House learned that the Advanced Space-based Solar Observatory (ASO-S) is a comprehensive solar exploration dedicated satellite established and implemented by the Space Science Pilot Project (Phase II) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The satellite weighs 888 kg and will operate in a 720-kilometer sun-synchronous orbit with a design life of more than 4 years. ASO-S satellite carries a total of 3 payloads: All-Solar Vector Magnetic Imager, Lyman Alpha Solar Telescope, Sun Hard X-ray imager. ▲ Rendering of the Advanced Space-Based Solar Observatory Satellite | Image from the official website of the National Astronomical Observatory. According to the introduction, the satellite takes "one magnetic and two storms" as the scientific goal, and aims to take advantage of the opportunity of the peak year of the 25th week of solar activity to analyze the two types of The most violent eruptive phenomena-flares and coronal mass ejections (CME), and the full-solar vector magnetic field are simultaneously observed to study the origin, interaction and interrelationship of the solar magnetic field, solar flares and coronal mass ejections, and for the serious impact of human high altitude. Technical activities for space-based severe weather forecasting. "my country's First Comprehensive Solar Exploration Satellite: "Advanced Space-Based Solar Observatory" will be launched in October, and the call for names will start today.
