RELATED TOPICS: STARMUS

Starmus, a renowned science and art festival, will take place in September 2021 in Yerevan, Armenia. Starmus VI will bring together world-class scientists, artists, and astronauts to celebrate science communication and recent scientific achievements.

Starmus VI will be dedicated to Mars, recognizing missions from Mars 3 and Mariner 9 to the recent spacecraft that have departed Earth for the Red Planet and the ambitious manned landing plans of SpaceX. Following the established tradition, the festival will address pressing issues and screen films about the exploration of Mars.

The Starmus Advisory Board will announce a further lineup of speakers from art and music later this year. For now, check out these "visions of Starmus past" to get a peek at what's in store for Starmus VI in 2021.
