Encyclopedia for non-astronomers

Here you'll find brief introductions to some of the exciting stuff that I spend my time with. More will come along the way. If something doesn't make sense, or if you have further questions, just get in touch.

At the moment, most articles are eithers stubs or rather old and not too well-written, but the ones indicated with a colored icon are pretty much up-to-date.
