Who are we?
“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys, on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the universe. That makes us something special.” – Professor Stephen Hawking.
But we are also made of star matter. The atoms that comprise life on Earth, the Oxygen we breathe, the iron in our blood, the magnesium in our bones are elements that were once forged in the hearts of stars.
When we reflect on that fact we are faced with the realization that the universe is inside us. It is time to head home.
This week we launch ourselves amongst the stars.
We will set our telescope on the most remote locations and with the guidance of our onboard astronomer we will focus our gaze into the dark between the stars to unravel the mysteries of our celestial neighbors… and beyond.
We depart from Paros and follow a circular route between the Cycladic islands in the hunt for the most remote beaches to set anchor. We will spend our nights away from any source of light pollution in the company of the finest summer wines to complement our star gazing sessions.
Our journey will take us to the islands of Despotiko, Sifnos, Poliegos, Milos, Folegandros and Sikinos.
This activity is comprised of a daily 30 minute theory session and a 1 hour observation session. We will be setting our telescope every night on the beach and travel from our nearest cosmic neighbours to the deepest corners of the cosmos
