IAU100 – Inspiring Stars exhibition

The year 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the creation of the International Astronomical Union.

Among the many celebrations that will take place, I am involved mainly in the Inspiring Stars exhibit that was opened at the IAU’s General Assembly in August 2018 in Vienna. This is a collaborative initiative in which resources related to astronomy research, communication and development are collected via an open call around the world and combined in a unique interactive exhibition.

As the Spanish National Outreach Coordinator in Spain I am coordinating and supporting the activities that are being organized in Spain during 2019 to celebrate the IAU100.
