KStars is not just for students, but also for anybody who is
interested in knowing more about the night-sky :). Astronomy is
something that interests a wide range of ages - 9 year olds to 90 year
olds! Here's something you can probably modify to fit into your text:

'Serious hobby astronomers, science educators, students and casual
sky-gazers can explore the night-sky and gain easy access to loads of
information and pictures using KStars. KStars can even control
observatory telescopes!'

On a side note, although it's not in my jurisdiction, I think
"smallest fundamentals of chemistry with Kalzium" would be better
replaced by "deepest fundamentals of chemistry with Kalzium".

Great contribution! Thanks for making KDE rock :)
