This artist’s impression shows how the Milky Way galaxy would look seen from almost edge on and from a very different perspective than we get from the Earth. The central bulge shows up as a peanut shaped glowing ball of stars and the spiral arms and their associated dust clouds form a narrow band. (c) ESO/NASA/JPL-Caltech/M. Kornmesser/R. Hurt

As an extension to our ordinary genius program for high school students, CP3-Origins gives high school students the opportunity to come and visit the centre and receive inspiration and help for their Specialised Study Project (SRP) supervised by people connected to the centre.
