Learn about ‘naked eye’ and optical astronomy. Also, discover how studying different wavelengths of radiation unlock the secrets of the universe. Learn about the science of spectroscopy- how analysing light can tell us the chemistry of a star!

Study the complex world of stars, to see how the thermal nuclear reactions, which power the sun, also power life on Earth. Study stellar evolution and learn about the different categories of stars.

Explore the history of astronomy, and understand how the ancient Greeks knew the world was round!

Consider what makes the earth unique, as scientists hunt for exoplanets, what is the recipe for life outside Earth. Learn that the Goldilocks Zone is more than simply ‘not too hot and not too cold’.
