  1. Unfortunately, the organizers have not learned anything from the past. Most of the lectures in the Tel Aviv area are held on Wednesday 10.10.18 and at almost the same time, instead of spreading the events over several days. Thus, we astronomy enthusiasts must make a difficult choice between good lecturers. Do this in accordance with the name "Space Week" and not "Space Day"
