What is astronomy? Why is it important?
In short, astronomy is one of the oldest known natural sciences. Astronomy is the study of celestial bodies and other observable objects in space. Using chemistry, physics and mathematics astronomers can predict different types of events and phenomena in the universe.

For good reason as it appears that an intricate understanding of our solar system and beyond is crucial to a more complex perception of life on earth.
