    Default Looking forward to reading the latest news from space



    Hi

    I have been interested in space telescopes and astronomy for some time now.
    Also been following curiosity's recent landing on Mars and the info it will bring.
    I am also interested in creating a course in astronomy for beginners.

    Hi Arthur, welcome to the forum! That's pretty cool that you are creating a course. Are you a teacher or is it for outreach?

    Hello Arthur. Glad to have you aboard. Like James asked, is this for school, or for a personal outreach project? Either way works to get people interested in astronomy. Welcome to the forum, and best of regards,

    Hi Guys

    The course is going to be for beginners, usually kids.
    I need to get as much on what people would want from such a course and
    any suggestions would be welcome
    I tried a survey backed by ppc but got few responses.

    Regards
    Arthur

    regards

    Regarding having a lab on another planet. Will I AM was the first celeb to get his music beamed back from Mars.
    Whatever it takes to get people interested.
