In this section, general info and details about the Virtual Telescope, its history and staff are available. All started in 2006 and over the years the Virtual Telescope gained an outstanding international reputation.

Since we started, almost 2.000.000 individuals from more than 200 Countries ( Jan. 2013) enjoyed the sky thanks to our project. The Virtual Telescope was asked to organize and coordinate several important events, like during the International Year of Astronomy (IYA2009).

To date, the Virtual Telescope Project is the most active facility in the world in astronomical science and education.
