Course Contents




There are a large number of students in Sri Lanka who are interested in the field of Astronomy and Space Science. However, due to the inadequate facilities available in this field of study, students are tempted to drop out of the subject as their questions are not answered.

The purpose of this course is to bridge the gap between curiosity/desire and knowledge and not only to answer innumerable questions related to the nature of the universe but also to a place where students can come and learn with real experience.

Furthermore, a student can not only satisfy his/her thirst for knowledge in Astronomy and Space Science but can also contribute to enhancing the Astronomy and Space Science knowledge among other students in Sri Lanka and thereby participating in educational service to the nation.
