Welcome to our WSO-UV site

WSO-UV logo smallThis site is dedicated to Chinese participation of the World Space Observatory - Ultraviolet (WSO-UV) Project, lead by the Chinese WSO-UV team at the National Astronomical Observatories (NAOC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

WSO-UV is a space astronomy project lead by Russia, contributed by China, Germany, Italy, Spain, and a number of other countries in the world.

WSO-UV consists of a 1.7-meter T-170M telescope,
a NAVIGATOR spacecraft, both to be contributed by Russia, three science instruments:

  • the High Resolution Echelle Spectrograph (HiRDES) lead by Germany;
  • the Long Slit Spectrograph (LSS) lead by China;
  • and the Slitless Spectroscopy Instrument for Surveys (ISSIS) lead by Spain.
and the Ground Segment being studied by Spain and Russia. According to the Federal Space Program Plan of Russia for 2006-2015, WSO-UV is to be launched in 2010 to GSCO with 51.4 degree inclination by a Zenit launch vehicle (provided by Russia), with a nominal life time of five years (ten years as goal).

With its unique observing capability in ultraviolet wavelengths WSO-UV is promised to become a "pillar" instrument of world's astronomy in the decade of 2010-2020, and help to solve great astronomical problems of our time.

Participating WSO-UV is included in the Eleventh-Five-Year-plan of the Science Space Program, issued by the Chinese National Space Administration (CNSA). China plans to provide the LSS and to contribute to WSO-UV ground segment, both lead by NAOC.
