  Children star-gaze from classroom
Updated 16 March 2004, 17.22
Image taken by the Faulkes telescope
UK school children now have the opportunity to view far-away galaxies, without having to leave the classroom.

Using laptops the children will be able to control two remotely operated telescopes as they explore space.

The telescopes are located in different parts of the world - Faulkes North in Hawaii and Faulkes South in Australia.

And because the telescopes are located in different time zones, children in the UK will be able to use them during school hours.

Find out more about the telescopes by clicking on the web link on the right.
