'Astrophysics on the Mediterranea' departs again from Cyprus ... b8b8f.html

"Astrophysics on the Mediterranea" is an introductory astrophysics project aimed at university students enrolled in three-year degree programs in Physics and Astrophysics, and takes place on the Mediterranea, an 18-meter Mikado Ketch equipped with a cutter that hosts the project.

"The astrophysicists are coming aboard again, and like last year they will turn our gaze above the sea, above the clouds, above the sky. They will talk to us about pioneering probes, projects by new universal explorers, neighboring galaxies to find Earth-like planets," said Simone Perotti, writer, sailboat traveler and founder of the Mediterranea Project.

"They will do this by speaking to young physicists, model students, not only prepared and chosen by field, but still able to use their imaginations. And there's no one that knows how to broaden horizons like an astrophysicist," he said.

The crossing has various educational stops, and will depart from the city of Larnaca on the southern coast of the island of Cyprus.
