It's hopeless in Sweden where I live, rain and rain and clouds.
I have to do something about it. I have already earlier used some data from astronomy data archives. Now I start with a new satellite, the Gaia astrometry satellite. It doesn't have images, it has astrometry data.
There are a lot of interesting things that can be done with these data. But first I have to learn how to extrat the data from the archive and how to process it.
I have written down how I do it and can be used as a tutorial for you who find it interesting.
Here it is on my homepage:
My first calculation is a HM-diagram of the stars close to the Sun.
Hope you find it as much interesting as I do.
Okay so I chose to take a year to decide which career to study, I've always been interested in physics and astronomy but I think I will go on and pick Chemistry. Any tips or ideas on what to do after?
