The upcoming solar eclipses and excitement of COSMO development have us so giddy that we broke into song (literally). We invite you to watch the result!
The recent Decadal Survey in Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pathways to Discovery in Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 2020s stated goals that would be supported by COSMO observations.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has provided funding for the final design of the COSMO Large Coronagraph (LC). At 1.5 meter aperture, the LC will be the world’s largest refractive telescope, and will enable observations of the global coronal magnetic fields.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has received funding approval to survey prospective locations for the Coronal Solar Magnetism Observatory (COSMO).
