Talk: “The Sensory Exploration of the Universe”

Although we are accustomed to a visual perception of the Universe, in this talk we will learn about other ways of perceiving the Cosmos, through hearing, touch, smell and taste. This paradigm shift also allows for the inclusion of people with functional diversity.
