This night we will offer two informal lectures about the dawn of space exploration.  We will talk mainly about Yuri Gagarin very first flight into space and the role of Sergei Korolev in the successful Soviet firsts as well.  Our guest for the lectures is the Head of the new Aerospace Engineering program at Universidad de Antioquia.  This program is the very first of its kind in the country.  At the end the lecturer will emphasize the importance of space exploration for humanity, the current exploration achieved by private players, democratization of space and the benefits of getting into this arena for developing countries.  We will have the projection of a documentary as well.

Admission is free.
