Astronomy on its own is a massive area of study, covering everything from the planets through solar systems and galaxies right out to the scales of the full Universe.
Taken alone however astronomy cannot provide the full picture of how our Universe fits together into the fascinating entity we see before us today, it is but one piece in the puzzle of understanding the cosmos (admittedly a rather large one!).
For quite a considerable time now some of the more informational posts on the blog have ventured into the more mathematical side of astrophysics, this will continue but we also hope to produce material on the aspects of particle physics and chemistry that help to underpin our working knowledge of the universe.
This new content will be produced at a level everyone one can follow and hopefully gain something from. It will also not take away from our regular astronomy news updates which will remain core to the blog.
We will also be announcing a new feature on the site within the next little while that we hope will make investigating a particular topic in astronomy much more accessible though it will take some time to get everything in order.
Stay tuned for more!
This evening we bring news of a new feature here on the blog.
As well as being lovers of all things astrophysics related, myself and Hannah are massive fans of space science fiction.
We’d love to see our readers contribute their own sci-fi stories about absolutely anything, so if you’ve got any we’d love to see them and, if you’re willing, share them on the YA! All you have to do is send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of the feature we will be publishing sections of our own sci-fi adventure story set on-board Earth’s Flagship the ESS Pisces
The story will be posted in sections when we complete them (and feel happy about showing the world!) and who knows there may be a complete version made available at some point.
We really look forward to your submissions!
See you round the Universe,
Peter & Hannah
After a long break from any activity the Young Astronomers are well and truly back in action!
First of all we have our brand spanking new blog – which of course you have managed to find if you are reading this!
All of the content from our temporary home at Sigma Orionis has already been transferred and we are still working on restoring content from our original blog. That process is nowhere near completed and will continue for a long period of time yet!
We are also working on filling out the blog with new content from more informational posts, more up to date news, interviews and hopefully podcasts.
As well as our new blog we also have our shiny new forum which you can access through here or via the convenient button on the top site navigation bar. Like the blog, the forum is still being fleshed out with content but don’t be afraid to start your own discussions!
Work on the main site is also continuing and we will update you with more news as development proceeds.
We would also really like to hear your thoughts about the new blog and you can tell us using our forum topic or using our poll below
In the mean time its great to be back and thanks for bearing with us!
Here at the Young Astronomers we really value your input. So for the first in a series of polls over the next little while we would like to hear about what you would like to see on the site.
To that end we have created a poll for our readers and we would love to hear what you think!
