Science is Freedom

The second place in the competition was awarded to Professor Grzegorz Pietrzyński of Warsaw University’s Astronomical Observatory. The international team of scientists he is in charge of made very precise measurement of the distance to a nearby galaxy – Large Magellanic Cloud. It was published in March 2013 in the columns of Nature, a prestigious scientific weekly. Measurement of distance is the basis of all astronomical research, and is also crucial for learning about the evolution of the whole universe.
