This particular workshop tells us the story of the Universe starting from its beginning! We aim to introduce the modern concepts in astronomy in a very accessible way. Concepts like the big bang theory, orbital mechanics, black holes etc. will be simplified and explained. The session also includes a virtual tour of the Universe using Space Engine!
This software can be used to take virtual tours of the Universe, generate graphics and provide visual learning content for the concepts in astrophysics. This simulator is scientifically accurate, within the technical limitations, and provides a simulation of the entire known Universe using procedural generation A free version is available for download and premium version is available on Steam.
