What is a scientist? How is the typical day of a scientists? What are the main goals of Virgo? These are some of the questions that students ask to us very frequently. That is why at EGO we decided to organize a special meeting with the local high schools of Pisa and tell them what is the life of a scientists.
In Virgo, we use light as a tool to measure the spacetime and detect gravitational waves. That is why the scientists of Virgo participated in the Global Open Lab Days (GOLD) initiative promoted by the committee of the International Year of Light (IYL2015).
