From Storm Chasing to the Northern Lights: a young family’s life adventure

Speaker: G. Formentini and S. Mainardi (no affiliation)

Date and time: 2014-11-04 11:30

A man and a woman meet in Padova (Italy) in 2006 and fall in love: an astronomer and a physician with a common passion for adventure and science. How can they make their dreams come true and whereabouts in the world? More than a hundred travellers have followed them through the Great Plains in the United States chasing tornados and, once they moved to Sweden, even to northern Scandinavia to stare at the Northern Lights. Youngest of all, their son Galileo, born in 2011. A story told by images and videos.
