Space Physics, To Boldly Go
Why should we study space physics? Using my own scientific development from high school until now I will try to explain why astronomy and space physics is so interesting. Unexpected discoveries of (eventually) explainable phenomena will be addressed with various examples. Also, the necessary instrumentation that needs to be (further) developed, in order to make these discoveries finds a place in this presentation. In all, after the journeys of discovery in the 17th century, searching for the road to the Indies, and before starship Enterprise, astronomy and space physics are the only places to boldly go where no one has gone before.
