In this case it was a trip to the Universe! The host was our member, the astrophysicist and science communicator Dr. Ángel R. López-Sánchez (Australian Astronomical Optics, Macquarie University) who took us to visit the planets of the Solar System, star clusters and nebulae in our Milky Way, and near and distant galaxies, to understand the deep connection that we have with the Cosmos and how unique our Planet Earth is.
The full video of the online talk is available on the YouTube channel of the Instituto Cervantes de Sídney.
However, Ángel had some few surprises for us. As he is both a professional astrophysicist and an amateur astronomer he prepared his telescope in the backyard and he shared with the audience live views of the Moon and the Lagoon Nebula as they were taken live with the telescope.
Everyone enjoyed the event and the beautiful presentation that Ángel gave, that was followed by a Q&A session with a very engaging virtual audience.
