Astronomy Software

Children are often driven and mesmerized by the mystique wonderland of space. It is a mystery that unveils itself only during the night. Its mysteries and cosmic elements can be better understood with expert guidance. If a child has a natural interest in matters of space, then it is advisable that he/she should be encouraged to go deeper into the subject. Who knows one day he might end up by taking a trip to moon or even Jupiter!

Children have an open mind and can grasp things easily. They take in whatever is placed in front of them. This is also true in case of astronomy. It is thus important to choose the right educational resources for a child. There are many educational resources available in the market today to help a child have a better understanding of astronomy. Astronomy software is one of the most valuable resources among others for this objective. While buying or downloading astronomy software, one must first see if that software or its version is compatible with the computer. There are many software that are available on the Internet for free. One can easily download them, install them and immediately start looking at the sky. Most of these software have a 3-dimensional image. Thus, the images look as realistic as one sees through a telescope or a binocular. This way, learning astronomy can become interesting and capture the attention of the child.

If your child is using a telescope to spot the astronomical objects, then you should first check if the astronomy software you are going to buy online or download is compatible with the telescope. A compatible software will direct the telescope automatically to the object your child wants to see. Some astronomical software even allow you to enter your location in the software, and shows the exact image of the sky as it is seen from your location or position on earth. This positioning of the image in the software will help you direct the telescope towards the point where you will find your desired object. Finding an object is also possible through astronomy software. You will just need to type out the search requirement. For e.g., if you want to look at Mars, you just need to type it out in the software's search bar and the software will automatically direct you towards the location of Mars. Thus, these easy-to-use software help children to find out what they want to know effortlessly. They can be of great help in science projects too!

I wanna change my career from 'Software Testing' to 'Astronomy'?

Am pretty confused! I always wanted to have a career in Astronomy or aerospace or in Aeronautical Engineering. It has been my interest. I have done my B.E in mechanical engg, am 23 now and working as a software tester. I wanna change my career now. Please advice. Is this viable. If so what shoudl i do. Is there anyone whoc have changed their career from software line to Aerospace. Please Help

With a B.E in Mech Eng and programing skill(?), you could probably get into a grad program in astronomy/astrophysics.
The problem you will most likely have is that the physics required for engineering is not as deep as the physics required for graduate level astro. However, that shouldn;t stop you.
Look into graduate programs in astronomy.
One of my PhD students in astrophysics has a background in chem. eng. and material science and he's doing just fine (and had no problem getting accepted into our program.
