Our young discoverer Platon
On December, 11, during the 1st Channel's show "Better than anyone", TV presenter Maxim Galkin introduced the youngest astronomer in Moscow, Platon Kachalin, to the viewers. Platon is the young pioneer-discoverer of stars,who received practical knowledge required for researchers of space in the field of astronomy during ESF Noosfera's project "Discovery within a week". Participation in our project had allowed him to make his first discoveries. Variable stars, discovered by Platon, had been officially registered in the International Variable Star Index (AAVSO VSX) under his surname. NOOSFERA's Team sincerely congratulates young Platon and wishes him success in the future!
