Korean Facilities (2)

Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI)

Diameter of 21m a radio telescope of three groups, one in Seoul (Yonsei University), Ulsan (Ulsan University), Jeju (Tamra University), three radio telescopes provide a caliber effect of simultaneous operations to the diameter 500km-grade ultra large antenna astronomy research enabled through the deployment of state-of-the-art observing systems

Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute

The Korea Institute of Astronomy, in collaboration with Chungbuk National University and Ohio State University, conducted many years of research on the search for extraterrestrial planets using microgravity lens phenomena. Started the task of developing an alien planetary search system (KMTNet). A wide-field telescope with a 1.6m diameter mirror and a massive mosaic CCD camera of 400 million pixels were installed at three observation stations in the southern hemisphere, Chile, South Africa, and Australia. Monitoring and observation will detect microgravity lens phenomena caused by extrasolar planets.

World’s Facilities (31)

France / Self-standing

The Observatoire de Haute-Provence is a covering astronomy, astrophysics, ecology and atmospheric measurements. The site hosts several instruments including a 193 cm telescope that enabled the discovery of the first exoplanet.The site also hosts a geophysics station about detection of atmospheric composition changes with LIDARs, spectrometers and weather baloons.The ICOS tower (height : 100 m) allows continuous measurements of greenhouse gases on the OHP site.Studies of the local pubescent oaks and evolution of biodiversity under global changes are also carried out.

Finland / Aalto University

Metsähovi Radio Observatory operates a fourteen-meter radio telescope at frequencies 2-150 GHz. The main fields of activity are: radio astronomical observations and multifrequency science (emphasis on active galactic nuclei and the Sun), Very Long Baseline Interferometry, radio astronomical instrumentation, space technology + instrumentation, researcher training in radio astronomy.Metsähovi hosts an extensive database of long-term quasar radio flux monitoring data as well as long-term observational data of the radio Sun.The observatory is a separate institute of the Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering, and it is located in Kirkkonummi, some 30 kilometres west of the Otaniemi campus. It is also one of the major research and teaching infrastructures of the university.In addition to the local personnel, Metsähovi hosts researchers and students especially from the Department of Radio Science and Technology and the Finnish Centre of Astronomy with the ESO, but also visitors from other Schools of Aalto as well as from other universities.

Spain / Self-standing

The German-Spanish Astronomical Center at Calar Alto is located in the Sierra de Los Filabres (Andalucía, Southern Spain) north of Almeria. It is operated jointly by the Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie (MPIA) in Heidelberg, Germany, and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (CSIC) in Granada/Spain. Calar Alto provides three telescopes with apertures of 1.23m, 2.2m and 3.5m to the general community. This RI is an ICTS (Unique Scientific and Technological Infrastructure), included in the Spanish National Roadmap for RIs.
