Hi there !

 

In this event we will discuss, connect and bring inspiration to each other by talking about topics ranging from cosmology, black holes, the big bang all the way to space travel, space settlements, science fiction, the Fermi paradox, and other such awesome topics 🙂

 

This Friday we are joining the global events organized under the umbrella of Yuri’s night ! Every year in this part of April Yuri’s night is celebrated in events around the globe as a way to bring the world together in our global celebration of humanity taking the step to explore space.

 

Our events are hybrid – both in person and online in order to accommodate both options.

For people joining us in person we will meet at the entrance of the main building of the Vrije Universiteit ( the tallest one) – the entrance is facing de Boelelaan street (see the address on the map here on this event page). I’ll have a green folder with me so you can recognize me by that. If you cannot find us, contact us at +31615466090

****************************

 

In our group we are usually talking about Space and the final frontier, and other interesting topics in an non-formal, relaxed environment. Our discussions revolve around topics ranging from space exploration(human, robotic) to astrophysics, exoplanets, Science fiction, or we can talk about something different like our place in the universe as a species – we live on a giant spaceship – some call it Spaceship Earth – we sometimes talk about the challenges and opportunities in the age of AI and the accelerating change that we live in. All in all, it is usually a very interesting and entertaining discussion, so it should be fun 🙂

 

More about our meetings in general: The format of the meetings is open and flexible. This group is addressed to anyone who finds these topics interesting enough to come and meet others with similar interests and to explore knowledge together. The meetings are in no way addressed to researchers or people active in science areas – in fact the more diverse backgrounds people have, the more interesting the dynamic of the discussions will be. If you will like the meetings, anyone can propose topics for future discussions.

And if you have ideas or topics that you would like us to address in our events – let’s discuss these together – we are open to new events proposals.

 

In fact if any of you are interested, any of the participants can prepare a 10-20 minute talk/presentation on any given topic ranging from space exploration to science fiction, etc. And also at the beginning of the event we will invite everyone to propose discussion topics and then if there are more than 2 we will take a vote as to which topic to discuss.

 

Our events will be hybrid – both in person and online in order to accommodate both options. If you cannot find us or if you need help in connecting, contact us at +31615466090 (Dragos).
