eTen project to webcast/broadcast total solar eclipse from Kastelorizo on 29 march

March 28, 2006

Brussels, Mar 2006

On 29 March a total solar eclipse will be observable from the island of Kastelorizo in Greece. The eTen funded D-Space project will, in collaboration with the Greek Astronomical Society, organise a mission to Kastelorizo in order to set up 2 solar telescopes and to transmit live the phenomenon through satellite and terrestrial link to the web.

The D-space project is to deploy a virtual science thematic park that will connect schools, universities, science museums and parks with a network of robotic telescopes around the world. The project will give students, teachers, researchers and individuals (amateur astronomers, visitors of science parks) all around the world the opportunity to use remotely controlled robotic telescopes in real time.
