The skies of Southern Africa offer great opportunities to view astronomical events. The Savanna Sky section is where these special moments are covered.





How did our universe begin? What will happen to it in the future? Are there other universes? In the Cosmos section, we ask fascinating questions about the Cosmos and discuss the current answers that science has to offer for these question.




Sol section is dedicated to the closest star to earth: the Sun. The Sun is our opportunity to witness and investigate the explosive life of stars close up. In this section we also investigate the celestial bodies in our galactic neighbourhood: the Solar System.
