The annual Space Research School was organized here in late August by Astronomic Youth (Astronomisk Ungdom) in collaboration with Lund Observatory.

Attending this year's Space Research School were twenty intelligent, motivated and space-interested high school students from across Sweden.  

During their 10 days in Lund the group of high school students attended several lectures given by university researchers and professors, they visited the Planetarium and the University Science Center: Vattenhallen, they observed Jupiter, M57 and the Andromeda galaxy with a remotely controlled telescope and they worked in groups to build and programme their very own CanSats.
