The Worlds Beyond

Since time immemorial, people have been fascinated by what they saw in the sky. They mapped the sky, scaled the time, and prepared calendars based on the study of celestial bodies to develop the oldest branch of science - astronomy. Later, Greek, Babylonian, Egyptian, Indian, Chinese, and many other civilizations all over the world contributed to it. Today, we know a lot more about our Universe, thanks to the great leaps in knowledge and technological advances.

Now, 2009 is being celebrated as the years of astronomy, as a commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the first recorded astronomical observations with a telescope by Galileo, and the publication of Kepler's book 'Astronomia Nova'. The aim of this celebration is to create interest among young people, in astronomy and science under the central theme, 'The Universe, Yours to Discover'.

In this blog, you can read about the past, present, and future of the Universe, and the unimaginable phenomena taking place in it. Welcome to the stunning worlds beyond.
