Outreach activities

HISTORIAS DEL TIEMPO

In autumn 2015 a crew of the TV station VTv (grupo La Voz de Galicia), lead by Xavier Fonseca, traveled to Geneva, Bern and Berlin accompanied by IGFAE researchers to record two special series of the TV program “Historias del Tiempo”. This program gives the weather forecast every night at 9pm accompanied by a short five minute scientific report. The two video series consisted of one set of nineteen episodes to commemorate the centenary of Einsteins’ General Relativity and an special of eleven Particle Physics programs focused on CERN activities and beyond. These videos were shown on TV during spring, summer and fall of 2016 and also linked from “La Voz de Galicia” web page attaining tens of thousands of visions.

The scientific advising of the videos was done by José Edelstein, Javier Mas and Cibrán Santamarina (IGFAE) and the special was partially funded by IGFAE and Vicerreitoría de Comunicación e Coordinación of USC. Xavier Fonseca was awarded the VII CPAN outreach prize in the video modality for the CERN series of these specials. The two series of videos can be seen in his youtube channel.
