Neil Ghosh shares his love for astronomy, and takes us on a tour that covers different aspects of the science, tying it to his own personal learning of it. (in English)
We have visited and moon and come back, sent space crafts beyond the edge of solar system which are still sending us signals. We have seen beyond our galaxy through telescopes and even discovered earth like planets in alien solar systems. Human being's quest for celestial outreach has began thousands of years ago and increased dramaically ever since.
This is a small tour of how it typically started with absolutely no scientific background and why does the space thrills people every time we talk about it. The nature has always surprised us beyond our wildest imagination. The scale of numbers and units are literally astronomical.
