Deep Space LIVE: Astronomical Start of Spring
Thursday, March 22, 2018 / 7-8 PM
(Linz, March 19, 2018) The first day of spring can be determined in several ways—astronomically, meteorologically or according to the stage of development of various plants. At the next Deep Space LIVE on Thursday, March 22nd at 7 PM, astrophotographer Dietmar Hager will shed light on which factors are decisive for the astronomical start of spring, and also go into how humankind’s striving to strictly structure time has additionally complicated the matter. This will be followed by a fascinating 3-D journey through the cosmos via 16-by-9-meter projections on Deep Space’s wall and floor.
Dietmar Hager is a physician, astrophotographer and Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. He has worked in the field of astrophotography for over 20 years, and published his photos in international journals and textbooks. He has served as the Ars Electronica Center’s astronomical advisor since early 2011.
