Researchers and practitioners, technologists and developers, leading experts in the field of space research and innovation discussed with young people mysteries and facts, achievements and goals, current issues and global challenges in connection with studies and exploration of outer space.
The format of the event provides free participation. There were many who wanted to get acquainted with the mysterious world of space: about a hundred young people came to the space lecture hall in the hall of SOGU’s scientific library. Participants discussed with guests projects for domestic and secular cosmonautics, security issues at various stages of their scientific and practical implementation, work in the space industry and preparations for it, they will take apart the “universal” myths and verified data.
Lecturers impressed, despite their young age, with their knowledge and broad vision.
Dmitry Epshtein, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Researcher at the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Popularizer of Science, came to North Ossetia from Novosibirsk:
– I came to Vladikavkaz to tell the guys about what is happening in space, how we look for life in different places. We will dispel the myths about space, astronautics and astronomy that we have in our heads, even though astronomy is already 5,000 years old, and we have been flying into space for work for more than 60 years. Although we live in the space age, we have a fairly large number of misconceptions about the world around us. I put together questions from my previous lectures to tell the guys what’s really going on. I teach at a school for gifted children, there are only 4 of them in the country – in Novosibirsk, Moscow, the Urals and St. Petersburg. Petersburg. In addition, I teach astronomy at Novosibirsk Pedagogical University and a course in general astronomy at Novosibirsk State University of Telecommunications and Informatics, Epstein told our correspondent.
