    Participants of our camps and students of the second year of high school: Zofia Księżak, Eliza Płotnikowa and Aleksandra Walczybok implement the project "WAY2SPACE", aimed at showing as many people as possible that astronomy and astronautics are not so scary. The project is part of the "Released from Theory" competition.

    Link to the project's instagram profile WAY2SPACE

    Project description:

    With the help of social media we would like to reach the largest audience possible, in an interesting and accessible way showing the various faces of astronomy and astronautics.

    Our main goal is to introduce our peers to the various departments of astronomy. However, we do not want to limit our group of beneficiaries to such a small circle - on our website everyone curious about the (all) world around us is welcome.

    Astronomy is close to us because it made us get to know each other - in 2019 we took part in the Almukantarat Club summer astronomy camp. It was there that we first realized how much we love this subject and decided to inspire more people to learn it.

    We also believe that in the last few years, astronomy in schools has ceased to be as important as it used to be, and the surveys we have conducted show that young people really want to delve deeper into its topics. Our profile will allow them to do so in a simple and accessible way.

    The 6th meeting of the Board of the 12th term Club will be held on January 30, 2021.
  • 6 January 2021Anna Wizerkaniuk

    The "Friday Lectures" organized by the Almukantarat Astronomical Club are back in the new year. The topic of the next meeting, which will be held on Friday, January 8, 2021 at 5:00 p.m., is How does the plane fly? - Drive .

    Host: Kacper Łęcki

    We will talk about the types of engines, their history, design and interesting solutions related to them. We will cover the basics of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics to understand how engines convert the energy of the bonds in fuel into the thrust needed to propel aircraft. In addition, we will discuss the key parameters that determine the efficiency of jet engines (and thus the profitability / sensibility of using them).
