On Thursday 16 February 2023 evening, he also gave a lecture to present “the latest news from the cosmos”, providing clear and precise information on space exploration. Many people attended this lecture and even some ‘non-scientists’ appreciated the simplicity and pedagogy of the explanations. He then answered all the questions he was asked: what is a black hole? is there life on other planets? Can an asteroid hit the Earth like the dinosaurs?
At the end of this evening, thanks to the telescopes of Sorya Yin and Jiper Duran, two amateur astronomers from Phnom Penh, we were able to observe Mars, Capela and Orion despite some clouds.
After this week in Phnom Penh, Alain Doressoundiram will go to Vietnam for a series of courses at the Technical University of Hanoi, but he promises to return to Cambodia.
