All About It
  • 25 Slots

Let's go on an interstellar Odyssey, right here in Pune. Space is so vast that it would take billions of years for a rock ejected from the earth to collide with a planet circling another star. The stars of the milky-way are drawn together by gravity in their own enormous orbits around its center. Our sun, for example, being way out on the edge takes some 2250 million years to complete a single orbit. At the same time during each revolution around the galaxy, our solar system will pass through three gigantic interstellar clouds, planet making factories each many light years across. Our Milky-way has more than 100 of these vast clouds, places where gas and dust condense to form new stars and planets. The best way to start exploring the night sky is with the naked eye. Under the guidance of our experts, you’ll learn to identify the constellations and stars, and that’s only the beginning!
