Starmus III announced for 2016

Starmus III has been announced for 27 June to 2 July next year: the festival is now a biennial event. With the tagline “Beyond the horizon – tribute to Stephen Hawking”, Starmus 2016 was introduced today by Tenerife president Carlos Alonso in the company of Brian May, Garik Israelian, and Hawking himself. Much more to come on this, I’m sure, but for the moment, HERE is Starmus III’s website, with a list of confirmed speakers including Neil deGrasse Tyson.

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.
