New Delhi (India), December 22: Astronomy is an exciting field of science that studies everything beyond the earth’s atmosphere. It includes the study of planets, stars, galaxies, the relationship of the celestial bodies, etc. The study of Astronomy has an outstanding impact on mankind or the nation at large. It confers the largest contributions to the development of science. Astronomical developments have proven to be a boon for society in general and yet not known to majority of the people on Earth. For instance, the iPhone’s camera is a charged coupled device (CCD) that captures the movement of electric charge, it was developed for Astronomy, now used in cameras, cell phones, webcams, etc. Similarly, various devices like laptops, GPS navigation, solar panels, MRI scanners, photographic films, and even powdered fruit juice were developed because of Astronomy usecase. Last but not the least, Astronomy makes oneself humble as we study this vast universe and try to figure out our place and role in it.
