Κοσμικό Φως: Αρχέγονο και Ανέσπερο

Το Κέντρο Ερευνών Αστρονομίας και Εφηρμοσμένων Μαθηματικών της Ακαδημίας Αθηνών (ΚΕΑΕΜ) οργάνωσε μια σειρά εκλαϊκευτικών ομιλιών στο πλαίσιο του Διεθνούς Έτους Φωτός 2015.

Το 2015 έχει ανακηρυχθεί από την UNESCO ως «Διεθνές Έτος Φωτός και Τεχνολογιών με βάση το Φως». Στόχος του Διεθνούς Έτους είναι να αναδείξει, σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο, τον τρόπο με τον οποίο το φως και οι βασισμένες σε αυτό τεχνολογίες επηρεάζουν κάθε πτυχή της ανθρώπινης ζωής. Οι εννέα (9) ομιλίες δόθηκαν από τους ερευνητές και τους συνεργάτες του ΚΕΑΕΜ και αφορούσαν το φως όπως αυτό γίνεται αντιληπτό από τις Θετικές Επιστήμες. Γι αυτόν το λόγο ο κύκλος των ομιλιών είχε τον γενικό τίτλο “Κοσμικό Φως – Αρχέγονο και Ανέσπερο” και είχε ως στόχο να παρουσιάσει τον τρόπο που οι πληροφορίες που μεταφέρει το φως επηρεάζουν την αντίληψη που έχει ο άνθρωπος για το Σύμπαν.

Οι διαλέξεις δόθηκαν σε δύο περιόδους (Μάιο – Ιούνιο και Σεπτέμβριο – Οκτώβριο) στο κεντρικό κτήριο της Ακαδημίας Αθηνών (Ανατολική Αίθουσα) κάθε δεύτερη Τετάρτη στις 7μ.μ.
