GLORIA Project

GLORIA stands for “GLObal Robotic-telescopes Intelligent Array”. GLORIA will be the first free and open- access network of robotic telescopes in the world. It will be a Web 2.0 environment where users can do research in astronomy by observing with robotic telescopes, and/or by analysing data that other users have acquired with GLORIA, or from other free access databases, like the European Virtual Observatory (http://www.euro-vo.org). observations on the other telescopes. GLORIA has succeeded in building up the first large scale network of free access robotic telescopes. It will allow any user to take images and actively participate to the their scientific exploitation. The project, which was initiated in October 2011, gives now access to thirteen telescopes: five in Spain, three in Chile, one in Argentina, two in the Czech Republic, one in South Africa and one in Russia. But more will be added soon. Enter or register on the users’ portal and start using ‘interactively’ four night and one solar telescopes or submit your request for scheduled observations on the other telescopes. The first phase of the project is ended (all GLORIA partners acknowledge the financial support of EC-FP7), but actually this is just the beginning of GLORIA. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.
