Is anyone going to college soon and pursuing astronomy or astrophysics in college? What are some colleges that have good programs?
UVA would be a good program for you and in state?
I’ve actually thinking about instate and out of state. UVA is on my list. Clemson is too.
NAU, I have a bunch of information about it if you need any. ASU is a good one too I think.

Hello everyone, has anybody heard of the United Space School summer program? Someone says that it is run by NASA and someone says not. Anyway, I ve got selected to take a part in it this summer, and my question is “would it have a significant weight in my application to top universities like MIT or Stanford?” Thank you for your attention.
I have come across this one www.spacec... cedacademy but presume this is different? I have asked my counselor last year about various summer programs and most prestigious are usually run by universities themselves or have been around for years like Telluride. At the same time the program you got accepted into may be an excellent place to spend summer and learn something.
Good article on life on other planets that our science team picked up xoplanets/
Anyone here interested in european astronomy undergrad programs as well as astro camps? I am looking mainly in the UK and Germany.
Hi there - check IAYC and Space School in the UK. Both are very good summer astronomy camps.
So what happened with Zuma launch?
This is a great article about the launch. Apparently the rocket was lost in orbit, but not much is known/confirmed because of it being top-secret.
