As all of us know that this year 2009 is being celebrated as ‘INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF ASTRONOMY 2009’ throughout the world conducting various programmes by the astronomer and public. As International Astronomical Union (IAU) requested UNESCO to celebrate international year of astronomy, the world is celebrating it.
Even in Nepal various programme are being conducted on this occasion. So we the physics students of St. Xavier’s College also planned to celebrate it in our own way and we decided to make a documentary titled ‘HUBBLE AND THE UNIVERSE’ due to the fact that visual representation of universe can be easily captured by general public. One need not have complex ideas of physics and astronomy to get feeling about the universe. Beside this the documentary will help people to understand the basic ideas of astronomy. Probably this is the first astronomical documentary ever released in Nepal.
So the above mentioned documentary is going to be released at the below mentioned details. We would like to request all of astronomy euthuanstic to attain the releasing ceremony in which the Prof. Dr. Uday Raj Khanal, Asst. Prof Dr. Binil Aryal, Tribhuvan University, Er. Rishi Shah, Academician, Nepal Academy of Science and Technology
(NAST), Nepal Astronomical Society (NASO) and other guests are also invited. So, we like to request you to attend our program and motivate us to do more astronomical activities in Nepal to make International Year of Astronomy a successful programme.
