The beginning of higher university-like education in Serbia can be traced down to 1838, when the "Licej" was founded in Kragujevac. The "Licej" was separated from the "Gimnazija" in 1839 and transferred to Belgrade in 1841. Judging by the content of the textbooks, elements of astronomy were lectured at the "Licej". The traces of "physical" astronomy in its curricula can be found in the academic year 1854/55. The law of 1863, regulating the transformation of the "Licej" into the Grand School (a forerunner of the University), did not include teaching astronomy...

Hercules Globular Cluster - 25,100 light-years. Hanging in the sky like a glittering bag of diamonds, the Hercules Globular Cluster is a spherical group of hundreds of thousands of stars. The cluster was discovered by Edmund Halley (of comet fame) in 1714, and is barely visible to the naked eye. In 1974 a radio message was sent towards the cluster on behalf of humanity from the Arecibo Observatory, in the hope that such a dense collection of stars has a higher chance of one harbouring life on one of its planets.
