Under One Sky: Astronomy around the World | Mongolia

This video highlights 100 years of astronomical activities in Mongolia. It includes the founding of the observatory in 1957, the first Mongolian astronaut in 1981, the first Mongolian Mazaalai satellite in 2017, and more.

In 2019 with IAU100, many important milestones are also being celebrated, such as Moon Landing 50 and various outreach events organized by the National University of Mongolia, such as translation activities, IAU Woman & Girls in Astronomy, Hundred Youth Ambassador, 100 Hours of AStronomy, and more.

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 eye 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.
