Space for science

With the artificially created night sky, galaxy of stars and the solar system around, one could just feel the experience of an astronomer in space. The virtual experience of space was provided by the mobile planetarium set up at the Yadava College on Monday. The beneficiaries were the crème of science talent from different schools in Madurai district who were participating in a `contact programme for talented school students.'

The mobile unit was specially brought from Anna Science Centre, Tiruchi to introduce students to space science. They gained knowledge of basic astronomical theories, constellation of stars and the galaxy. The Department of Science and Technology-sponsored programme stressed the need for learning basic sciences. The seven-day programme will also introduce students to all branches of science including the latest advancements in biotechnology.
