    Hi, I would like to do an EPQ on astrophysics as thats what I would like to go into at university. However, all the topic choices I had are covered by my physics a level and so I can't do them. I'm really interested in stars and galaxies - about how they're formed, how they evolve in billions of light years, and how they die and what happens when they do. I'm really stuck on what to do but really want to do it - any suggestions on what I could do? Thanks

    Maybe the death of stars, u can talk about the different avenues.

    Black holes could be interesting.

    Or maybe how planets were discovered. U could talk about how they discovered neptune and i heard they reckon there may be another planet in the solar system (i was talking to someone today at the royal observatory)

    Aragoscope?

    It's been suggested as a lightweight future space telescope

    couple of videos
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RacK2VwqEk <- This guy demos the concept best

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9c8oZ49pFc <- This guy gives the theroretical background, but makes a mess of the demo (also imo comes across as a bit smarmy)
