Udaipur : Science students were taken on an educational tour to the Udaipur Solar Observatory by the Physics Department of Bhupal Nobles’ University. This educational tour was organized under the direction of Dr. Devendra Pareek, Head of the Department of Physics, 27 students of science class participated in this educational tour and along with Public Relations Officer of university Dr. Kamal Singh Rathore.
India’s largest telescope Multiapplication Solar Telescope is located in this observatory at Fatahsagar lake island. Through which the scientific study of the Sun is being done. The diameter of this telescope is (50 cm). Through which it is possible to study the Sun in the most subtle scientific way. Sun spots present on the surface of the Sun, Sun’s magnetic field, spectrum lines obtained from the Sun are being studied through this telescope. The scientists present there explained in detail to the students about this telescope in detail and in simple language.
After that the students were shown the Gong apparatus (Global Oscillation Network Group Telescope) present in Udaipur Solar Vaidyashala located on Badi Road. In-charge of Gong and scientist Dr. Brajesh Kumar explained about Gong that it is an achievement that six Gong telescopes are present in the world, one of them is present in Udaipur Solar observatory.
Three such instruments are located in the Northern Hemisphere and three such instruments are located in the Southern Hemisphere. In this way the sun is being studied continuously, and solar physics is being explained in detail. Data is being analyzed. And scientists are presenting the findings. In this way, Udaipur Solar Observatory is such a research center where science students can make their future in solar physics. According to Dr. Renu Rathore Dean of Science, this is a big achievement for Udaipur. All the students were happy to get information about the Sun. And Dr. Ritu Tomar said that this will definitely increase the interest of students for research in physics.
