From prehistorical times, astronomy was necessary for agriculture, traveling, navigation, climate forecast, and it gave new insights into the understanding of nature.
Our course will start with classical notions and then will dig deeper into the practical applications of astronomy and astrophysics in daily life: How has technology contributed to the construction of telescopes, spacecrafts and to the exploration of space? Why do we need space missions? How important are the Greenhouse effect and climate change for life on earth to exist?
We will educate young students for many new professions in astrophysics such as data analysis, computer programming and engineering specialized in modern technology materials.
