“Planetary Congress” is an open interactive lecture to be given by Dr Jakub Bochiński.
Thursday, 13th February at 6:30pm
Akademeia High School, Ledóchowskiej 2, Warsaw
Planetary Congress is an interactive lecture during which we will play the role of advisors to the European Space Agency. Our task is to help the Ministerial Council decide which space missions should be built in the upcoming years. Our end goal: to answer the long-standing question – how likely is it for us to communicate with an alien civilisation? A bona fide scientific problem, whose importance is growing daily. Especially in the light of last year’s Nobel Prize being awarded for the discovery of over 4000 planets outside of the Solar System. Our discussion will be based on real scientific debates currently playing out during astronomical and inter-governmental meetings worldwide.
