Learning


At CosmoQuest, it’s important to us that you can learn as much about astronomy and space science as you want. To make this possible, we offer a variety online programs to help you learn and to help others learn.

Learn on Twitch with CosmoQuest

Our CosmoQuestX Twitch Channel offers you a one stop shop for getting space science in your brain. We offer a variety of programming that varies from online astronomy classes taught by PhDs, to the Daily Space news show, to Astro Office Hours. We also co-stream special events like rocket launches and spacecraft landings. Make sure to give our channel a follow so you can get notifications whenever we go live.
