On September 22, iCANX Story, a talk show jointly created by Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP) and the global scientific and technological innovation ecological platform iCANX, staged a grand comeback. Sticking with its tried and tested science-based in-depth interview format, the new season takes on the title “Science Story”, and its first episode focused on magical "eyes" in the universe——X-ray-extreme ultraviolet optical technology and aerospace applications. The program featured Guest Prof. Bo Chen, Deputy Chief Engineer of CIOMP and Researcher of Chinese Academy of Sciences. The show was streamed to 17,800 online viewers.
Prof. Bo Chen and his team of CIOMP researchers systematically introduced various instruments for observing the sun, the earth’s plasma layer and aurora, including the solar X-ray extreme ultraviolet imager, Chang’e-3 extreme ultraviolet camera and wide-angle aurora imager, etc. They discussed their current work on X-ray and EUV bands, as well as future space development planning. They also touched on their work concerning the upgrade of existing instruments, including the Chang’e-7 EUV camera, the wide-angle aurora imager mounted on the Fengyun-3 star 08, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) pilot special advanced space-based satellite Lyman Alpha project.
“Science Story” is an upgraded of the "Master Story", the first season of iCANX Story, aired in 2021. It is committed to bringing a new visual experience to the audience. Each episode of "Science Story" will feature a different theme, and take the audience on a tour of various working laboratories. The program will allow the audience to have close encounters with respected researchers and explore the stories behind science, in order to promote the scientific spirit, the visibility of scientific and technological achievements, and scientific and technological exchanges.
Released in the same year as CIOMP celebrates its 70th birthday, “Science Story” will continue to publicize major scientific and technological achievements, build a bridge between the public and science workers, and expand the international reputation and public influence of CIOMP.
