IYA2009 on wheels

The GalileoMobile, carrying astronomers through Chile, Bolivia and Peru, is on its way for its two month mission to bring astronomy to those less likely to have the means to study it in depth.

The van will carry the team to workshops and star parties. It will also include film-makers and translators on parts of its journey. The journey is a project of the International Year of Astronomy, 2009 to bring educational materials to schools and communities that are deemed underserved in this area. Updates will be kept on its blog, facebook page, flickr account and twitter feed.
