Watch: Mar.15 Prof. Wen CHEN: Introduction of IAMC and Science Missions
Speaker: Prof. Wen CHEN
4 pm GMT+8
Space science focuses on spacecraft based research in physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology and other sciences related to natural rules of solar-terrestrial space, interplanetary space, and even the whole universe. At January 11th 2011, the Strategic Priority Research Program of Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), the greatest plan of scientific-exploration satellites plan, was officially kicked off.
Since then IAMC has successfully launched 6 scientific satellites into the operational orbits, applied to dark matter explorer, quantum space experiment, microgravity science experiment, solar observation and so on, not only achieving great scientific discovery findings but also driving the development in relevant fields. There are also many interesting scientific satellite missions in development or in study. In this talk, Prof. CHEN will introduce scientific missions including those flying in-orbit, in development, and the future plan.
