Following the week in Colombia, the GSO-team continued on to Brazil. In just seven days we visited Santa Maria Madalena, Sao Joao da Barra, Sao Francesco Itabapoana and Campos, attending the 15th International Meeting of Astronomy and AstroPhysics. In addition to a well of interesting presentations, it was also the premiere of the second Brazil Science Opera!
And as if this wasn’t enough, there was a book-launch of “Aventuras Atraves do Espacio-Tempo – Historia em quandrinos”. This book tells the story of a science opera created by students , supported by three teachers in Campos which had premiered earlier in the spring.
We also managed to squeeze in a nightly road-trip to the National Dark Skies Park.
Below are some of all the wonderful people we met during the week.
