Cosmic Migration

Cosmic Migration

At the National Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria, the New Year  begins with the gaze turned “upwards” and an extraordinary program of events shared with the subjects active in the territory for the enhancement of the Calabrian cultural heritage.

On Friday, January 3, the appointment is at 5.00 pm, in the spectacular space of Piazza Paolo Orsi, with the Planetarium Pythagoras and the astrophysicist Giovanni Palamara, who will entertain the public on a highly suggestive theme: “Cosmic Migration”. It will be an “inter-galactic” journey to the origins of the universe.

Greetings: the director of the MArRC, Carmelo Malacrino, and the scientific director of the Planetarium, Angela Misiano.

The Planetarium expert will talk about the mysterious “migration” of matter in deep space, observed by scientists and called “dark flow”.

Angela Misiano presents the meeting as follows: “Some data seem to indicate that an immense current of galactic clusters would move away from Earth, even if scientists currently do not have accurate elements to establish the direction of movement. If this will be confirmed – Misiano continues -, given that the distribution of matter present in the observable Universe cannot justify such a motion, one would have to hypothesize the influence of enormous cosmic structures outside our current “horizon”, which would be exerting a powerful gravitational thrust on the matter around us”.
