The aim of the portal is to popularize knowledge in the field of astronautics, space industry and use and exploration of space. The website cooperates with many organizations which deal with space research, building equipment for manned and unmanned missions.
“We teach in the form of fun. We make acquiring knowledge a pleasant and exciting experience. We believe that there is no such a field of knowledge, which could not be presented in a creative, interesting and understandable way. We transfer knowledge in such a way as to combine it with already possessed information and skills. Thanks to that each of the Young Astronauts (participants of the classes) assimilates new information more easily. This is because new knowledge, presented in a familiar context, does not become a “desert island at the end of the world”. We can say that “we attach islands of information to continents of knowledge, making them peninsulas”.
Nauka. To lubię
The portal Nauka.To lubi (Science.I like it) is run by Tomasz Rożek – physicist, journalist and popularizer of science. As he says, he likes science and that is why he has set up social media, a website and a YouTube channel, where he publishes interesting videos on various scientific issues – from space to medicine, technology or the Earth and the environment. Tomasz Rozek is also the author of many books that also touch on the aforementioned topics.
“He reveals the mysteries that researchers have been puzzling over for a long time, but also presents the latest discoveries of scientists. He describes even the most complicated issues and processes in a witty and accessible way, and thanks to numerous examples from everyday life his texts stimulate imagination and encourage to deepen knowledge.”
