Studente uit alle fakulteite is welkom om saam met ons die heelal vanuit ’n aardgebonde perspektief te verken. Ons besin oor die ganse kosmos van die submikroskopiese tot die asemrowende, uitgestrekte makroskopiese en die mens se beskeie posisie daarin. Tot watter mate bepaal sterre ons lewensgeluk? Eggo's van antieke uitspansels – die sterrekunde van vervloeë beskawings. Die heelal word gebore met ’n knal. Sterre, die Melkweg en planete word gevorm. Lewe word in die aardse landskap geplaas, maar is daar lewe elders? Die agitektuur van die heelal – afstandmetings, struktuur van ons sonnestelsel en sterrestelsels. Hoe lyk ons buurplanete? Komete en meteoriete. Lewenssiklusse van sterre. Ontploffende sterre. Eksotiese voorwerpe soos pulsare en swart gate.
