The following updates are pending SPoC Approval :

Update: Suresh Bhattarai [see human resources section] [Section1  ii,iii,iv] 22 May 2009
Update : Binil Aryal [see human resources section] [Section1 iii] 14 June 2009

i. [Suresh Bhattarai  : There are altogether 8 Universities in Nepal.Tribhuvan University is the only University offereing Masters Programs for Physics.So far.Also, It has offerred Cosmology and Astrophysics for Desertation since 2005A.D. By 2008 A.D. 19 Students have done their desertation on Astronomy and Astrophyiscs]

iii. [Suresh Bhattarai  : 3 more. For the number of academics who have trained in astronomy, you have missed a great number of astronomers.You should not miss the name of Dr. Binil  Aryal (Dr Binil Aryal,Nepal's First Astrophysist, is very impressive and inspiring personality among the National and International Students.There is another great personality who is Nepal's First Cosmologist,Prof. Dr. Uday Raj Khanal.) and those 19 Graduate students who have finished their M.Sc. thesis in A& A. One more Cosmologist of Nepal working in one of the University of New Zeland.His name is Ishswori Neupane ]

[Binil Aryal: About 22 MSC students completed
their masters's thesis under my supervison since 2005. Few works are published
in the Journals MNRAS, A&S and Ap&SS. Our latest publications can be found in
the following url:

Some of my students are doing PHD in USA (4 students), Germany (3 students) and
France (a student). The list of the Nepali students who completed their masters
thesis in A&A are as follows:

1. Sunil Mani Kandel: Subcluster & Substructure Analysis of the Spatial
Orientation of Galaxies in the Core of the Shapley Concentration (Viva on 23

Our Research domain included Galaxy Evolution, Chirality of Large Scale

Cosmological Constant stuffs, Serach of Cynogen molecules in the Radio-Micro
and -infrared frequencies, and Intracluster medium.

Four more students are going to complete their masters thesis in A&A in 3
months. Our three manuscripts are in the process of publications.

These days I am in Beijing, China, Participating on a school on 'Cosmology and
Astro-particle Physics' as an expert, leading a team of Astrophysics student
(masters student) of Nepal.

Prof. Khanal is doing Cosmology in our group in Nepal. Dr. Ishwaree Nupane is my
colleague, who is in New Zeeland, doing Cosmology, particularly on Brane Theory
and Supersymmetry.

I did PHD from University of Innsbruck, Austria in the year 2002 and
Post-doctorate (2005) from a collaborative project connecting ESA and
University of Washington, USA. Later I joined my position as a Associate Prof.
in Tribhuvan University, Nepal. In addition, I am working as a collaborator of
various research groups in Europe and US.]

iv. [Suresh Bhattarai  : For the  number of astronomical facilities (observatories, telescopes, etc),you missed the government body which is established for the astronomy development in Nepal.For more you will find the details on: The only National Observatory of Nepal at Nagarkot has been constructed by 2008 and is in operation now.Also.The organisation is providing grands for the resrearch scholars and access for the obserbation from The National Observatory.But unfortunalety,The organisation has not taken outreach as a significant part of astronomy developemnt in the nation.There are small numbers of small telescopes which are frequently used for the public outreach activities in The Nation.]
