Repairing the Virtual Telescope’s 14 inches unit: fundrising campaign
NOTE: if you prefer to donate without going to the Indiegogo platform, click here!
As millions of individuals out there knows very well, the Virtual Telescope Project did, since its foundation in 2006, a titanic work to bring the wonders of the Cosmos, live, to the world. Just surf the web and see what our reputation is.
We show you, online, the most important astronomical events in real time, asking no money for that. yes, all is free. We love sharing what we love, we feel that like a mission, our mission.
But from time to time, we need you to survive.
Last week, after many years of public and science activities, the electronic board of our 14″ robotic unit failed and it needs to be replaced. We are asking you to help us, supporting this expense.
This telescope did many historic things for the public: for example, it hosted the first edition ever of the Online Messier Marathon, one of the greatest advances in astronomy communication ever invented.
Help us to bring back to life the most publicly active telescope in the world.
Thank you so much for your trust and consideration.
