Largo José Mariano Gago nº1,
This Citizens Space Debate was held to take advantage of the exhibition 'Above and Beyond', celebrating the 100 years of the IAU shown at Pavilion of Knowledge.
Over the years, astronomical observation has inspired and been inspired by fiction stories based on imagination and humour. For this debate, 12 guest Astronomy researchers were asked to choose a cartoon about their field of research to share with students and engage them in the debate with the theme “What we know now and what advances will astronomy experience in the next 100 years?” The conclusions drawn for the debate were presented in a poster, that was added to the exhibition, containing the current knowledge and the most relevant questions of astronomy for the next 100 years.
