How have radio telescopes changed our view of the Universe? What can we learn by measuring X-rays from space? For hundreds of years our only information about the cosmos came from visible light, but we can now see the sky across the full electromagnetic spectrum. Join us to explore how different types of telescope reveal the extremes of the Universe, and to learn about future observatories and space missions that will push our understanding even further.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
