Throughout the ages, Arabic countries have been vital in advancing our understanding of astronomy. However, many modern day recollections of astronomical achievement do not include these advances made by the Arab people. In this show, we will take a look at all the contributions made by the people of the Arab world from ancient Egypt, all the way up to today. We will look at how astronomy has shaped Arabic culture and discuss why modern day Arab astronomers and discuss why Arab contributions to astronomy are often times overlooked.
All ticket sales are final.
