Tibetan Plateau Remote Astronomical Observation Exhibition
Astronomical observation requires a clear atmosphere and cloudless night sky. The Tibetan Plateau located at an elevation of more than 5,000 meters provides world-class astronomical observation conditions. However, it is difficult for people used to living in areas of lower elevation to stay there for long periods of time.
Through technology and fundamental science, a remote-controlled observatory has been constructed. Using satellite communications and remote observation methods, it is possible to view the environment and conditions on this plateau at NMNS and to control the astronomical observation equipment. Short documentary films are shown on a regular basis to introduce the harsh conditions faced by the team of workers who built the observatory, solar power station and satellite antenna. These films also portray the magnificent landscapes and rich culture of the Tibetan Plateau.
