“The Starmus Festival was put together by Garik Israelian who managed to assemble the most amazing bunch of megastars ever, Neil Armstrong, Jim Lovell, Buzz Aldrin, Alexei Leonov, Richard Dawkins, Kip Thorne, George Smoot – and it just goes on and on. Never thought I would ever be in a position to see any Apollo astronauts in the flesh – but Garik made it happen. With trips to the Teide telescopes, whale watching, trips to the La Palma telescopes and a two and a half hour Tangerine Dream concert to close the Festival – this was an action-packed, totally unforgettable, completely mind-blowing experience.”
GregEditor, MASA (My Astronaut Space Astronomy)
