The Space Reasearch Suitcase


As part of our Educational effort we will develop a "Space Suitcase" or "Space Box" project encompassed in a suitcase. The suitcase will consist of the following instruments:
  • Cosmic ray detector
  • Magnetometer
  • VLF receiver
  • A simple allsky camera
  • Sunspotter
    ..and a laptop, with software to display data.



This suitcase will be lent out to high school classes after providing some instruction on its operation. Following a month or so, of using this suitcase, the high school students (and teacher) are asked give a presentation about their research and the resultant findings. The Space Suitcase is then circulated to another school.

For more information, contact Kjartan Olafsson, Assoc. prof.
