Webinar on A Planetary Dance

The Webinar on A Planetary Dance took place on Friday, December 11th, 2020 from 10 am until 12 pm, with Beatriz Londoño, leader of the Science and Technology For Everyone Initiative (SciTechXE), as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker explained that we learn about the universe by observing, measuring and applying mathematics and highlighted some great thinkers like Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. Beatriz Londoño mentioned some scientific laboratories that do experiments and pointed out two scientific communicators: Neil deGrasse Tyson and Jim Al-Khalili. The speaker also presented on what we know about the universe, described what big and far away mean, and stated that the planetary dance in the solar system takes place on ellipses that lie on the same plane.
