ERIS guest webinar: VENUS
SODISM is a kind of camera onboard the satellite Picard in orbit around the Earth. SODISM regularly takes photos of the Sun to study its atmosphere. We will use these images obtained during the transit of Venus (passage of Venus in front of the Sun for an observer on Earth) to explore the peculiarity of the space experiments. For this we will use true scientific observations. SODISM is a telescope taking images of the Sun. It is not the first to measure the solar diameter, but it makes it with a very high precision.
Is the Solar diametre variable during time?
Is it affecting the climate of the Earth?
These are two important questions, which scientist want to answer.
