STScI

Research

… but with pupils!

Campaigns

Telescope on Teide mountain at 2500m.
Working like the pros.

The STScI initiators, Dr. Thomas Eversberg and Dr. Klaus Vollmann, are not only amateur astronomers but also educated scientists and still active in research (see Professional Publications). Therefore, the STScI is established in astronomical research and conducts corresponding activities. This knowledge is passed on to our junior staff. Examples include two observation campaigns on Tenerife, together with professional observatories around the world, from which several reports and professional publications resulted. Who has a professional publication as a pupil…?
