12 Pakistan Network of Telescopes for Astronomical Observations 12 History of Astronomy in Pakistan Department of Astronomy was Established in 1914 First Telescope was installed in 1924 The department of Astronomy was closed in 1988 The building of Astronomy is Occupied Dome and Telescope are saved to date

13 Pakistan Network of Telescopes for Astronomical Observations 13 History of Astronomy in Pakistan Very few activities are planned Very few trained manpower is available No coordination in terms of Astronomy

14 Pakistan Network of Telescopes for Astronomical Observations 14 History of Astronomy in Pakistan COMSATS took the initiative Intends to join hands with GHOU Planning to establish a Robotic Astronomical Observatory

15 Pakistan Network of Telescopes for Astronomical Observations 15 Advantages of Robotic Telescope are –Remote controlling service –IT professionals and electronic engineers can get opportunities including Image processingImage processing Data storage and sharingData storage and sharing

21 Pakistan Network of Telescopes for Astronomical Observations 21 Requirement of the time To keep pace with technical learning society Research based learning Interest boaster for young generation Pakistan will be introduced in the community of astronomy Member of GHOU Astronomical on-line connection with 18 member countries of GHOU

22 Pakistan Network of Telescopes for Astronomical Observations 22 Academic Objectives are –High Precision Astrometry –Understanding physical nature of celestial objects –Structure of the Universe –Monitoring and observing gamma ray bursts to locate black holes

23 Pakistan Network of Telescopes for Astronomical Observations 23 Areas to Get Benefit are –Education by introducing Astronomy –Attractive and informative source for media coverage of astronomical events in Pakistan and all over the world –Opportunity for Pakistan to collaborate and share astronomical data with 18 other nations

24 Pakistan Network of Telescopes for Astronomical Observations 24 Impact –In 2004, Punjab Textbook Board included a complete chapter on Astronomy & Space Sciences in their Science Textbooks of Class 1 to Class 8 –A curriculum is being discussed for class 9 & 10 to teach Astronomy as an independent subject –In 2004, Higher Education Commission has designed a curriculum for Space Sciences at bachelor and masters level
