Research Project Ideas for First Year Astronomy Student?

  1. May 7, 2016 #1
    Hi, I am wondering what are some good ideas for a first year undergraduate science research project? I am majoring in Astronomy so am after some ideas. My special interests are Pluto, Black Holes and of course Planet X.

    What ideas have you come up with?

    Perhaps you could use the pictures of Pluto and research its planetary geology using other planets as a comparison.

    Hey, thanks for that suggestion I will look into it. It's postgrad level but a short report in comparison to others. Do you think "is Pluto a planet?" an appropriate topic? I am new to science, with a law background so a little unsure as whether that's acceptable. Thanks
