THE ATTRACTION OF THE UNKNOWN: FROM THE THULE OF PYTHEAS TO THE MONOLITHS OF SPACE ODYSSEY AND THE PLANET SOLARIS

Wednesday, 11 January 2017 | 18:00-21:00
ONASSIS LIBRARY
(56, Amalias Ave., Metro Station: ACROPOLIS)
FOR PEOPLE 18+

What are the social dimensions of the human drive for exploration of the unknown during the centuries? Inspired by a selection of incunabula books of the Onassis Library, we attempt a historical analysis of the exploration efforts from the past until today’s challenge of living on other planets.

Speakers:

Ioannis Daglis, Professor of Space Physics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
Evanthis Hatzivasileiou, Professor, Department of History and Archaeology, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
