Want to know more about radio astronomy? Click on this link to download our exhibition in A4 format, easily printable and usable for classrooms activities. In this document, you will learn a lot about how radio waves can contribute to unravel the mysteries of the Universe. You will also learn the difference about radio waves and sound waves, and compare the radio emission from a star to the strength of a mobile phone signal. This work was done by the EU-HOU members, in collaboration with Science à l'école, a project from the French ministry, and Paris Observatory.
