Tune in to Starmus – and Ask Hawking

THE Starmus Festival has announced another novelty for next month’s Tenerife convention with an Ask Hawking competition.

It is a new attraction which helps make this one of the most eagerly-awaited scientific encounters of 2014, with the Canary Islands as the worldwide meeting point for astronomy, astrophysics and space exploration.

Starmus takes a further step forward by allowing the public to put questions to one of the leading lights of contemporary science: Stephen Hawking.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
