Diverse UniverseApril 18-24, 2016

The Universe. It’s a catchphrase meaning “everything” or “all there is”. It’s the ultimate in diversity.

And the universal attraction of astronomy has led to a community as diverse as any.

To celebrate that diverse community – all connected as One People, One Sky – AWB has multiple programs on tap for GAM 2016 under the banner of The Diverse Universe.


GAM Blog – This week’s posts on the GAM Blog will focus on the diversity of the global astronomy community. Check out the GAM blog for daily updates.
