The IA in the European Researchers Night 2022

The IA joins the 2022 edition of the European Researchers Night. Check the program and join us in Lisboa or Coimbra!


National Museum of Natural History and Science

17h00 – 24h00

Edible Solar System

Compare the sizes of the planets of the Solar System through some items we may find in the kitchen, and challenge your knowledge about our “neighbours around the block”.

Challenging Universe

The Universe offers beautiful images of galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, but what do we really see in these images, what astronomical objects are these? Let’s go a little beyond with a few challenges.

The sound of the abyss of time

Space and time can vibrate, and this vibration tells a lot about the past of the Universe, but may also reveal us its destiny. Try to listen to the Cosmic symphony.

Lisbon’s Botanical Garden

19h00 – 24h00

The sky through a telescope

Observe through telescopes some of the celestial objects visible this night. Subject to weather conditions.
