Bologna, Italy – On 6 May 2019, the Bologna community is invited to partake in an evening of cosmic and Earthly pleasures at the public event of the Cherenkov Telescope Array’s First Science Symposium, which is taking place the same week at Teatro Duse in Bologna. The public event, called ‘Can You Hear Me?’ will take the audience on a fantastic journey through space and time to discover and experience some of the Universe’s greatest mysteries.

Presenter, Stefano Sandrelli (INAF), will begin the journey in the age of the “father of observational astronomy,” Galileo Galilei, and continue through time to the present frontier of multi-messenger astrophysics, where the audience will hear from some of the greatest modern minds in the field: Nobel Laureates Takaaki Kajita and Rai Weiss and CTA pioneer and spokesperson, Werner Hofmann.

And to be sure the ears and eyes are as stimulated as the mind, the audience will be treated to a series of entertainment interludes that will feature performances by theatrical group Kepler 452 and one of Italy’s most popular music bands, Lo Stato Sociale.

Event Details:

Teatro Duse, Via Cartoleria 42, 40124 Bologna

Doors open at 8:00 p.m. Entrance is free, but seat reservations are required.
