   Every child has a right to know about our beautiful and immense Universe. Becoming aware that our Sun is one of some 100 billion stars in our Milky Way Galaxy and that our galaxy is one of about 100 billion galaxies in our Universe shows children the absurdity of war between the peoples of our planet.

 

Ten winners have been selected from around the world to be provided a Bresser Messier AR- 90/900  Refractor telescope that has been signed by astronauts to be used during the 100 Hours of Astronomy global event on 10-13 January 2019.

GET YOUR TELESCOPE OUT TO SHARE THE MOON ON JULY 12 and 13 2019
In July 1969, 600 million people on all the continents followed the first step of a man on the Moon, together with their family or friends, around a radio, sometimes a TV. Fifty years later, we want to feel this enthusiasm for the Moon again in a global, universal movement, transcending all borders.
Our first Belgian astronaut Dirk Frimout (SSVI and Euro Space Society) is part of the support committee together with 30 scientists from all over the world.

 

SSVI in ZENIT februarinummer 2018

'Sterren Schitteren Voor Iedereen reikt verder dan alleen maar bekendheid geven aan de wereld van sterren en planeten. Wij willen kinderen en jonge mensen die om wat voor reden dan ook een achterstand hebben opgelopen in hun jonge leven de kans geven om de sterrenwereld te bewonderen door een telescoop. Het februarinummer van ZENIT dat eind januari 2018 van de persen rolt doet uitgebreid verslag van dit mooie project en gaat in op de successen maar ook de problemen die wij hierbij ervaren.
