Robotic Telescope Network With Access Via Internet to Be Built

In Europe, a new citizen science project is being developed in which a world network of robotic telescopes will be able to be accessed by European citizens. Citizens of European countries will be able to access 17 telescopes across 4 continents for observation time. This is very exciting because it will allow anyone who is interested in astronomy to appreciate its wonders without leaving their homes. This will also be useful for anyone from an astronomy expert to just the average Joe. It will be free to all and will be easily accessible via the internet from any computer. Hopefully, this will expand the interest in the field of astronomy, as well as keeping people informed.
