In college, I took every astronomy class they had because I've always loved the subject, and I was dying to know how the hell they could tell a star's composition, size, distance from earth, how fast it is spinning, and orbiting satellites just from analyzing the light. Now although, once you learn how that all is obtained, it is actually quite simple (The concepts)... But I'm still amazed as hell when they find this stuff.
