La Luz de las Estrellas: Patrimonio de Todos - 2008

solo disponible en versión inglesa

Open publication - Free publishing - More heritage

A number of factors make StarLight: A Common Heritage a remarkable vision, a supra-worldview. In April 2007, individuals and representatives from diverse academic and operational fields, from hard and social sciences, and from government and nongovernmental agencies and institutions gathered in La Palma, Spain, to spark the StarLight “territory”: majestically domed under the skyscape, as seen from the earthscape.StarLight is a farsighted terrestrial outreach: to unite the already impoverished earth with its relatively undisturbed heritage above, viewable dimly and superficially during the night.

As the proceedings argue, “the sky, our common and universal heritage” offers us the opportunity to use science and technology to understand and to act as guardians of the StarLight in its totality for the next generations, without attempting to tame or harness it for today’s wayward purposes. This calls for international actions to anchor the earth to its roof, in defense of quality and purity of earthscape, skydome, and what lies in between: our universe. (Jafar Jafari, President of the Starlight Scientific Committee)
