About the Program

Will the universe expand forever? Is there life on other planets? How do stars form? These are only a few of the exciting questions confronting astronomers. The development of space observatories, the construction of large telescopes on earth, and the availability of large computers for data analysis and theoretical calculations has been accompanied by a rapid growth in the sophistication of this field.
