The Castilla-La Mancha Science Museum, located in Cuenca, organized from November 2 to 6 a total of five conferences, a book presentation, two temporary exhibitions, a guided tour and an astronomy workshop with the aim of disseminating the science to the population.
As the museum space reported in a press release, the lecture cycle includes different areas of astronomy, women in astronomy, volcanoes or astronomy enthusiasts, among others. It will be held in person in the Museum Auditorium and will be broadcast live on AstroCuenca’s YouTube channel. The sessions will be recorded so that they can also be viewed when you are late.
The book “The Birmingham Clave” will also be presented by Jesús Martínez Frías, IGEO researcher and expert in meteorites, planetary geology and astrobiology, as well as president of the Spanish Network of Planetary Sciences. The Birmingham Key aims to be a thematic extension of the 62 planetary and micro-astrobiological stories of Darwin’s Message, in a new and stimulating vision of the future.
In addition, on November 2 will open the “Astronomy” exhibition, a journey led by women who will lead to the discovery of the many mysteries of astronomy that they have revealed with passion and courage.
On November 4, “50 Years of Change in Cancer History” will open its doors. The Spanish Association against Cancer (AECC) brings together the 10 most important research steps developed over the last 10 years.
Finally, on Saturday 6 at 11:00 a.m., an astronomy workshop for young children will enter the solar system, and they will end the workshop by building their own sundial to learn what it is and how it works.
