General presentation

What is the Milky Way? How is it in radio?

You can find here a general presentation about the Milky Way and how it has been exploited in classrooms as developped in the course of the EU-HOUMW project (pdf, ppt, key).

This is an updated version of the presentations performed during the European Teacher training performed in December 2011 in Cyprus and April & June 2012 in Paris.
