STARGATE

 Welcome to the Stargate webpages!

  Have you ever wondered what neutron stars and pulsars are?
  Would you like to locate the Cygnus, or Swan, constellation in the star-filled sky, but you don't know how?
  Do you know how stars are born?
  How was our solar system created?
  What is the Big Bang?

 

“Nature loves to hide”, said pre-Socratic philosopher Heraclitus.
And indeed, Stargate is aimed at all those who would like to uncover its secrets and its goal is to be the first step in your attempt to explore and comprehend the fascinating world of astronomy and cosmology - in other words, those sciences that are related to the study of  all astronomical bodies and which explore the birth and evolution of the universe. We hope that your tour through the different sections of Stargate will provide answers to questions such as the above, stimulate your interest in scientific research and ultimately help you reach your own Ithaca of knowledge.
Our ongoing effort is to make Stargate understandable to everyone, without requiring any specialised knowledge.

 

Stargate consists of four main thematic sections:

 

 

1,001 Words: In this section,  our aim is to add every three weeks or so an impressive photograph of astronomical interest with a brief explanatory caption.
(resource only in Greek)

 

Topic of the Month: In this section, you will find self-contained articles on various astronomical topics, which will often refer to timely issues. 
(resource only in Greek)

 

Periscope: Current news and the latest discoveries in astronomy and cosmology research will be presented here in brief. 
(resource only in Greek)

 

Man and the Universe: A more detailed introduction to astronomy and cosmology is presented here, beginning with the solar system and concluding with the Big Bang, in other words, the moment that the universe was created.
(resource only in Greek)

 

Join us on a wonderful journey to the "brave new world" of Astronomy and Cosmology!
