With self-made high-precision space science measuring instrument, National Cheng Kung University and Academia Sinica take part in the ERG satellite mission by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The research team found auroral electrons were accelerated at an altitude of 30,000 kilometers. This unexpected finding revealed that what scientists have believed about auroras for fifty years could be incorrect. By extending the study, the research team hopes to contribute to understanding about electron acceleration mechanisms seen in other solar system planets or celestial body magnetospheres.
