Speakers

The speakers will give lectures within the framework of the main program of the Festival “Discover the Cosmos and Change the World”, participate in different panel discussions, as well as give free talks at the University of Bern and other venues (full program to be announced soon). The full list of scientists and astronauts and the detailed program for all of these events, including the free lectures, will be announced later this year. A separate press release will cover the concerts, musicians and artists performing at Starmus V.
