José Maza’s course on the moon
October 28 to November 16.
“Poems, wars and loves have been born facing the Moon. His admiration transcends all of human history and has been a beacon for great travels. This course will also be a journey… a trip to the Moon,” says José Maza, astronomer at the University of Chile and winner of the 2009 National Prize for Exact Sciences.
“We will address the Apollo project, the large craters and without a doubt the great NASA project “Artemis” that will seek to take -this time- women and men to step on the natural satellite of the Earth,” says the researcher of the Center of Excellence in Astrophysics CATA.
