Under One Sky: Astronomy around the World | Ethiopia

This video describes the brief astronomy and space science development milestones in Ethiopia, from the onset of the Ethiopian Space Science Society (ESSS), the establishment of the Entoto Observatory and Research Center (EORC) and the Ethiopian Space Science and Technology Institute (ESSTI). It highlights the major achievements and activities that have been performed in the country for the past 13 years, as well as the astronomy outreach activities performed in the country. Ethiopia wishes a special happy birthday to the IAU as it celebrates its 100th anniversary throughout 2019.

This video is part of the IAU100 series Under One Sky: Astronomy around the World, which provides a glimpse into the diverse worldwide astronomical community. Each video is presented through the eyes of the IAU National Outreach Coordinators, with every chapter we will learn about the history of astronomy, the country’s current research efforts in space science, and how astronomy is celebrated in this region,  with firsthand comments from astronomers and insight into the activities developed during the IAU100 celebrations throughout 2019.

Join us in celebrating an astronomical journey Under One Sky.
