Narlikar pitches for astronomy in school education



PUNE, India: Make astronomy part of school education and include it in the science curriculum, eminent astro- physicist Jayant Narlikar said on Sunday.

He was speaking at the25th foundation day lecture of Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA) on 'Building scientific institutions: The IUCAA story.'
He said, "In order to spread the astronomy culture in the country, astronomy content must be included in schools in an effective way. Today, astronomy as a topic is covered in geography. Ideally, it should be a part of science and in a more elaborate manner."

We agree and submit our vSpace web application as one tool to aid in accomplishing this task.
