    Course description

    The course gives an overview of instruments and observing techniques used in solar system and astrophysical research, covering a wide range of frequencies from radio to gamma-rays. We investigate space missions and their scientific goals, and design a mission of our own. 

    After the science bit, how about some extra motivation? A famous explorer once said "I had the ambition to not only go farther than man had gone before, but to go as far as it was possible to go."
