The festival ambassador, professor RNDr. Miloslav Druckmüller, CSc. will have a presentation about his recent expedition to Antarctica in the morning slot. Professor Miloslav Druckmüller is a Czech mathematician and university teacher. He became world-famous for solar corona images taken during total solar eclipses. These photographs have been published in many prestigious periodicals and are part of a number of scientific publications and articles. Some of the professor's algorithms are commonly used today to process images from space probes that observe the Sun. Professor Druckmüller conducts scientific research in cooperation with the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Hawaii. He has participated in many international expeditions to solar eclipses around the world and is the author or co-author of more than 50 scientific papers in this field. He is also tirelessly popularizing science, especially astronomy.
In the evening, the documentary movie Helios will be projected from 5:00 PM, followed by a short discussion with professor Druckmüller until 6:30 PM. The capacity is limited, so a prior registration via Eventee (only for participants registered for the afternoon slot) is mandatory.
