This was published in the “Science view” of the morning edition of the Yomiuri Shimbun on 30th September 2018.
We, Yoshikawa-Yoshioka lab., developed two instruments loaded on Mio — MSASI (Mercury Sodium Atmosphere Spectral Imager) and PHEBUS (Probing of Hermean Exosphere By Ultraviolet Spectroscopy).
Mio will launch on 18th October 2018.
We are installing a small antenna on the roof of the building for experiment.
This will be used in order to receive data from satellites.
A scaffold for installing the antenna is being built now.
We will introduce the progress of this project here from now on.
The title is "Evaluation of hydrogen absorption cells for observations of the Planetary coronas". Detail information is in here.
