Vatican Observatory cosponsors exhibition on astronomy

Catholic World News - February 03, 2012

The Vatican Observatory, joined by Italy’s National Institute of Nuclear Physics, Pisa University’s physics department, is sponsoring “Stories from Another World,” an exhibition in Pisa.

The exhibition includes “spectacular images, instruments, and exhibits such as lunar and Martian minerals, leading visitors on a fascinating journey which begins in the solar system and our material nature, reaching the stars of this and other galaxies, up to the spatial and temporal confines of the universe and of our current knowledge,” said Cosimo Bracci Torsi, president of the Palazzo Blu Foundation in Pisa, at a Vatican press conference.
