Thuraya Astronomy Center is the place where people can come down and experience astronomy, Hasan Ahmad al-Hariri, the center’s Director and chief executive of the Dubai Astronomy Group, has said.
Speaking to Al Arabiya English, he said that the center educates people about space and prepares them to explore the subject. The Center is clearly more than just a place to observe stars in the city.
Al-Hariri says that they are putting a life-long journey on the table. He said that it is not enough for us to just learn and forget. “We want people to learn and convert it into action,” he said adding that these actions form the bases of new frontiers.
“Our investments in education will only avail when our children take over the torch and do something with it,” al-Hariri said.
