AstroChallenge aims to enhance student interest and understanding in Astronomy, and to foster close inter-school ties through this shared interest.
AstroChallenge, as the largest Astronomy-based competition in Singapore, aims to promote and facilitate Astronomy as both an intellectual pursuit and personal passion.
AstroChallenge is an annual astronomy competition jointly organised by the Astronomical Societies of National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University. AstroChallenge is specially-tailored for students in Secondary Schools, Junior Colleges and Polytechnics.
Inaugurated in 2002, AstroChallenge aims to broaden student interest and knowledge in astronomy; and to strengthen inter-school ties through their common interests. Students will tackle rigorous questions covering both theoretical and practical astronomy.

This book is already the fourth volume of our student-level series of lectures and publications on icy worlds of the outer solar system: Members of our society are producing them in their spare time because we cannot find such books on our local or the international market. We believe that self-publication is a great new way to communicate the aims of astronomical societies to the public and inspire the interest of our audience when they can put the companions of some of our lectures on their book-shelves.
