General introduction to astrophysics on one side and Earth observation on the other one: 

•Astrophysics: Objects of astrophysics (stars, galaxies, Universe). Observations (coordinates, distance measurements, photometry, spectroscopy) 

•Earth observation: gives information about planet Earth's physical, chemical and biological systems. It is used to monitor and assess the status of, and changes in, the natural environment and the built environment
