Teaching Astrophysics and Space Science

Annette Ladstätter-Weissenmayer

The changes from the plane Earth to the Earth as a sphere and then the change of what the midpoint of the Universe is, was all connected to astronomy. And this continues up to today with new revolutionary insight into the cosmological evolutions and Black Holes. The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master program in Astrophysics and Space Science-MASS is an intersectoral, research-oriented Master program, covering state-of-the-art research in six main pillars: Gravitation and Cosmology, Stellar Astrophysics, Exoplanets, Astrophysical Techniques, Astrostatistics and Big Data, and Space Science. MASS is jointly delivered by a Consortium of four Universities: Rome “Tor Vergata”, Belgrade, Bremen, and Côte d’Azur. Therefore, MASS allows its students to move among the four Consortium Universities to be exposed to the theoretical aspects of modern astrophysics, to the knowledge/use of observational facilities and/or to the data reduction and science exploitation of big data sets coming from current/forthcoming ground-based or space-borne experiments.
