About the vocation to Astronomy and its importance both for all of Mankind and for Ukraine, in particular. Astronomical research at Lviv University has been going on for over 250 years. For 25 years, the department of astrophysics, which prepares future researchers of the sky, has been operating here continuously. About cooperation as a complement to the strengths of the Lviv and Vienna astrophysical scientific groups. About why modern astrophysicists are also good programmers. Nebular astrophysics, the study of white dwarfs and cosmology (the study of the physical universe as a whole) are the strengths of Lviv astrophysics. Research of near space (laser-location and photometric observations of artificial satellites of the Earth, study of their orbits and monitoring of their changes) are the strengths of modern Lviv astronomy. Competent physicist, astronomer, astrophysicist and programmer needed on the modern labor market – these are the characteristics of our Graduate. About this and other things from the head of the department of astrophysics of Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Bohdan Melekh.
