Serving this website and the DOT website is the last activity of Utrecht University in astronomy after starting in this field in 1642.  It even canceled its subscriptions to the major astronomy journals.  To study physics and astronomy in The Netherlands one now has to go to Amsterdam, Groningen, Leiden, or Nijmegen.  Om natuurkunde en sterrenkunde te studeren kun je niet meer terecht bij het zogenaamde Departement Natuur- en Sterrenkunde van de zogenaamde Universiteit Utrecht maar moet je naar Amsterdam, Groningen, Leiden, of Nijmegen.

Verantwoording:  ik jatte "webstek" niet van onnavolgbare Interim Dichter des Vaderlands Simon Vinkenoog (1928-2009) maar van onnavolgbare collega-sterrenkundige Vincent Icke.
