In Cyprus there will be a planetarium

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Vyacheslav Zarenkov decided to build a planetarium in Cyprus and a multimedia gallery for the "Revived Canvas" project. They will be created in Episkopio (near Nicosia) on the territory of the Orthodox church in honor of the Apostle Andrew the First-Called and all the saints in the Russian land.

Recall that the temple in Episkopio was opened in 2017 year. His ktitor (the person who allocated funds for construction) is also Vyacheslav Zarenkov. Within the framework of his project "Creating Peace" in Episkopio, a cultural and educational center will be created.

It is assumed that the planetarium and the gallery "Revived canvases" will be opened in autumn 2019 year. The project is being prepared by the creators of Planetarium No. 1 in the gasholder at the Obvodny Canal of St. Petersburg Evgeny Gudov, Alexander Ruzhinsky and Stas Bobyshko.

The planetarium will become a place where children and adults will be able to get acquainted with the map of the star sky in every detail, "explained Veaceslav Zarenkov to Fontanka. - Also there will be shown scientific and educational films and even art films.

Scientific hypotheses about the origin of the universe do not contradict religion, believes the founder and president of the group "Etalon":

Christians believe that the world was created by God. Therefore, it is considered that the study of nature in the context of the biblical tradition is the study of the Creator's plan for peace. This means that scientific knowledge does not contradict religious experience, but, on the contrary, enriches it. Through the cognition of nature, man learns the beauty of God's world.
