Planetary Scientists and Astrophysics
We're a team of 3 Geoscientists on our 3rd year through the bachelor program at Aarhus University. This page is created as a part of our project in communicating our collective knowledge of particular Astrophysics subjects, to anyone of interest.
This site will feature articles, pictures and educational videos. It's intended for Highschool usage and optimized for tablet and mobilephone viewing. Furthermore its a permanent sub-project of Geostud - a portal for Geoscience students.
"There's nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in science and engineering, for a better tomorrow, for all humankind."

THE MOST ASTOUNDING FACT
THE JOURNEY THROUGH OUR UNIVERSE
“I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.”
- Neil deGrasse Tyson
