Agora

The project consists of a series of spontaneous, unplanned, short "interventions" carried out by professional and amateur astronomers in public environments, where astronomy talks is not expected. This includes  plazas and parks, in addition to public transportation (such as train stations, on the subway, or on the bus). This activity aims to involve millions of people throughout Argentina. And also serves as a tribute to the first astronomers, who educated and inspired with minimal resources.
