MOON FOR ALL MANKIND

Queridos astrónomos de la RAC:

Envío un documento interesante de Pedro Russo acerca de un proyecto interesante en Malta. Les sugiero primero mirar el archivo adjunto que nos envían de Malta (MOON_FOR_ALL_MANKIND) adjunto y con éste les envío respuesta que dí. Escucho sus oportunos comentarios.

Un abrazo para todos,

JOSE ROBERTO VELEZ MUNERA

MOON FOR ALL MANKIND
IYA 2009 Malta Committee




The year 2009 marks the 400th anniversary of the first use of an astronomical telescope by Galileo Galilei and the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 first moon landing. The IYA 2009 Malta committee would like to commemorate both events with a IYA 2009 Malta committee project to involve several countries around the world to image the moon in the spirit of Apollo 11 “in peace for all mankind” combined with the ideals of the IYA 2009 to popularize astronomy with the public and also to increase an interest in science.





Interested countries are asked to contact Apolen observatory and they will be assigned one of the above portions of the moon by the IYA 2009 Malta committee. Each individual country will image its portion of the moon on the night of a full moon on 9th May or 7th June 2009. These images will be sent electronically (email or CD by post) to Mr Leonard Ellul Mercer at the Apolen observatory in Malta, where a collage of all the images of the moon will be produced. (Kids)

The final collage of images of the moon will then be distributed around the world as collaboration between different countries of the world in the spirit of “The Moon for all Mankind”.
