General description

Modern astronomy has made some astonishing discoveries - how stars burn and how black holes form, has shown galaxies from the edge of the universe and killer rocks right next door. Where the elements come from and how the expanding universe is accelerating. But how do we know all that? The truth is that astronomy would be impossible without technology, and every advance in astronomy is really an advance in technology. But the technology by itself is not enough. We have to apply it with a sense of fun and discovery in order to unlock the secrets of the Universe!

Fun, you say? That's right! Coimbra and Portugal can also offer you sunny beaches, a Mediterranean diet, an awesome culture, and a secular city of students! All provided by the LBG Coimbra, where the "Work Hard, Party Harder" motto is taken very seriously.

What are you waiting for?!
