Make Your Own Space Exploration Unit
The study of space is the investigation of everything outside the atmosphere of Earth. Astronomy studies celestial objects (such as stars, galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and nebulae) and processes of those celestial objects like supernovae explosions, gamma-ray ray bursts, and cosmic microwave background radiation. (What? There are microwaves in outer space?)
