Every human has always wondered what lies beneath and beyond the sky. One always tends to try and put meaning to the universe that lies around him. And thus, astronomy came into being.
Astronomy is a natural science that studies celestial objects and phenomena. It applies mathematics, physics, and chemistry, in an effort to explain the origin of those objects and phenomena and their evolution. Objects of interest include planets, moons, stars, galaxies, and comets; while the phenomena include supernova explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic microwave background … Continue reading “Astronomy”
