Space Hands-On Universe Telescope (SHOUT) to be built on JEM Exposure Facility of the International Space Station
Space Hands-On Universe Telescope (SHOUT) is an 1-m telescope for science education. It will be built and adjusted on the exposure facility of the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM) of the International Space Station by using robotic arms and the EVA of astronauts. It will be released from ISS after its perfection on orbit, so that it is free from the vibrations and gas contaminations on and around the ISS. SHOUT will be operated by the idea of Hands-On Universe program to engage students and teachers in authentic scientific exploration, learning basic math, science, and computer literacy while using tools and methods performed by professional astronomers. The students will access to SHOUT through the Internet or a direct link from their classroom for their own observations. SHOUT is also an engineering prototype of 10-m Space Telescope Space
SUBARU Telescope). It will be scaled from the Space-SUBARU telescope so that the testing with the SHOUT would warrant the required specifications for the 10-meter Space-SUBARU construction on the ISS.
