【中大新聞】第13期:Smallsats making a big breakthrough: GISS student joins international team to win first place at the UNISEC Pre5th mission idea contest.

Pasted Graphic 1Ms Duann Yi, a graduate student at the Graduate Institute of Space Science(GISS) at
NCU, teamed up with fellow students William Evonovsky from the University of
Colorado and Kaustubh Anand Kandi from the Indian Institute of Space Science and
Technology(IIST) to participate in the Pre5th Mission Idea Contest(MIC) established
by University Space Engineering Consortium (UNISEC) in Rome, Italy, at the end of
2017. They proposed the idea of a satellite constellation for ionosphere exploration
by combining Taiwan’s FORMOSAT-5 with IDEASSat(Ionosphere Dynamics Explorer
and Attitude Subsystem Satellite)/INSPIRESat-2 and INSPIRESat-1 of the
INSPIRE(International Satellite Program in Research and Education) global
Collaboration Program. The idea won first place of the Pre5th MIC!

【自由時報】日本大阪地震 福五觀測到前兆

搭載先進探測儀 發現地震前電離層濃度異常增加
〔記者簡惠茹/台北報導〕福衛五號再度看到地震前兆!

日本大阪在六月十八日發生芮氏規模六.一強震,造成五人死亡、超過三百人輕重傷,中央大學太空科學研究所團隊從六月十四日起就觀測到日本上方電離層濃度異常增加,更發現日本十九年來規模六以上的地震,四天前電離層濃度都會明顯增加六十%以上。

台灣第一枚自主研發衛星福衛五號搭載先進電離層探測儀「太空魔方」,能收集電離層相關資料,包含離子速度、濃度。除了太空觀測,研究團隊在地面上也以全球
GPS接收站資料建構全球電離層圖(TGIM),每十分鐘觀察一次,可說是目前世界上最詳盡的資料。 Read More…
