A new temporary exhibition visits the Regional Museum of Natural History - Plovdiv
From today 29.03.2019 until 11.04.2019 the visitors of the Regional Museum of Natural History - Plovdiv will have the opportunity to explore the traveling exhibition "Up and Beyond", developed by the International Astronomical Union. The exhibition can be seen in the new hall of the Marine Aquarium.
In 2019, 100 years have passed since the foundation of the IAU. In celebration of this symbolic anniversary, a series of initiatives all over the planet under the title "Under the same Sky" are organized during the year. They aim to promote the most important astronomical discoveries in the last century, as well as to facilitate access to information and the possibility of observation and thus stimulate the interest in astronomy in children and adults.
The "Up and Beyond" exhibition, dedicated to the anniversary, is a journey through a century of research and discovery. The translation and the technical processing are done by colleagues from the Institute of Astronomy with NAO, BAS.
