Summary, in English

In this last episode of the second season Nic and Rebecca get a visitor from the Department of Geology. One does not always use telescopes to study the stars. Chiara Paleari has been using ice cores to study our own star, the Sun, and has discovered evidence of an ancient solar storm.

In this second season of the Meridian we are also bringing you some field reporting from the Nordic Optical Telescope on La Palma, where a team of astronomers are trying to catch an ultra-hot Jupiter-sized exoplanet.
