GRAPES-3 telescope upgraded at ooty

The GRAPES-3 experiment at TIFR’s Cosmic Ray Laboratory in Ootacamandalam is getting upgraded. It is the telescope which reportedly made news last year when it detected the effect of a solar storm that hit the earth in June 2015. The upgrade will play a significant role in getting precise information about the propagation of storms in ‘the last million miles’ of their journey from the Sun to the Earth.
