The second IAstro Júnior session of 2018, “Mysteries of the Galaxies“,  will take place at the Calouste Gulbenkian Planetarium – Ciência Viva Centre, on the 17th of March, at 5:30 pm.

The researchers Íris Breda, Fernando Buitrago and Alexandre Cabral from Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) and the Lisbon and Porto Universities will tell us, in three short, simple and interactive presentations what we do and do not know about galaxies and reveal the instruments that are helping us find the answers.
