Our curiosity for space was always there, for many decades. Hence the curiosity for the unknown is making us always searching. Therefore this continuing search has led us in many great achievements, like flying.
Yet what we are still long from discovering is Space. From the very recent breakthrough of taking an image of a black hole, it is understandable that we have a lot to know.
And by saying ‘we’, I mean all the Astronomy scientists, known also as Astrophysicists. So they seem to have a lot on their plate. Because they have only observations and science to discover the Universe. Hence they can not ‘test’ their hypothesis in the laboratory, for example.
Astronomy: the science of curiosity for space
Astronomy is indeed a fascinating science studying celestial objects (such as stars, planets, comets, and galaxies). Because of our curious mind in discovering Space, Astronomy helps us not only to discover what lie beyond Earth but also helps us to evolve our technology.
Because of the fact that Astronomy is about observing Space, it has driven us to new emerging technologies, such as our camera phone and freeze dried food.
