Sterre en Planete is 'n voortvloeisel uit Hennie Maas se gewilde radio­program met dieselfde naam wat weekliks op RSG uitgesaai word. Een van die uitstaande kenmerke van die radioprogram is dat die vier kundige deelnemers, prof. Matie Hoffman, Willie Koorts, Kobus Olckers en dr. Japie van Zyl, dit op 'n eenvoudige, lekker geselstrant doen. Die boek Sterre en Planete poog om tussen die akademiese, sterrekundige wetenskap en sterrekunde vir die leek 'n brug te slaan. Hierdie boek sal ongetwyfeld 'n groter gehoor as net die radioprogram trek. En met die astronomiese ontwikkeling op die gebied van ruimtewetenskap sal 'n volgende boek binnekort nodig wees!

After nine-years of work by the South African and Australian SKA site bid teams, the independent SKA Site Advisory Committee (SSAC), composed of world-renowned experts, carried out an objective technical and scientific assessment of the sites in South Africa and Australia, and identified by consensus Africa as the preferred site. However, in order to be inclusive, the SKA Organisation has agreed to consider constructing one of the three SKA receiver components in Australia. The decision by the SKA Organisation to build the majority of the SKA in Africa coincides with our celebrations for Africa Day. It also fits in well with the African agenda as we celebrate the 49th anniversary of the founding of the Organisation of African Unity and the 10th anniversary of the African Union.

Night Skies of Southern Africa was first published in 1987 and reprinted 11 times. It became the standard reference for enthusiasts in the region, but has been out of print for more than 10 years. This enlarged, new-format edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate the latest findings and advances in the science of astronomy. Freshly designed, with many new full-colour images, it still offers the same standards of reliability and usability and so much more.
