Jan Bleha, Community Manager at Kiwi.com, explained that Minitsenka originally came for the company’s ‘Women in Tech’ conference. “At the conference, she only gave a short talk. She was open to presenting her projects in greater detail, so we invited her to the Brno Observatory.
According to Bleha, this is “a unique opportunity to hear from someone connecting one of the largest software companies with NASA for the purpose of the exploration of Mars.”
Dr. Pascal Lee, co-founder and chairman of the Mars Institute, will join the event via video link.
The event takes place at the Brno Observatory and Planetarium (map) from 6-9 pm and is open to the public.
Entry is free of charge, but the number of places is limited, so to reserve a seat, visit the Observatory website, here.
