Park Bulvar's Tusi-Bohm Planetarium is featured as one of the top 5 attractions in the country on the official website of the International Astronautical Congress.
For the first time, Azerbaijan will host a global congress that will bring together more than 6,000 representatives working in the space field. On October 25, 2019, Baku won the right to host the International Astronautical Congress in 2022 during the elections held at the General Assembly of the International Astronautical Federation in Washington, D.C., the capital of the USA. Among the cities nominated to host this prestigious event were Singapore, Rio de Janeiro and New Delhi. It's indeed a remarkable achievement that the Tusi-Bohm Planetarium is recognized as one of the top 5 nationally important sights on the official website of the International Astronautical Congress to be held in Baku in 2022 (see the Annex). Within the framework of the congress, many interesting events will be held at Tusi Bohm Planetarium in Park Bulvar. It should be duly noted that the federation, comprising 398 organizations representing 68 countries, stands as the foremost and esteemed international organization operating within the domain of space exploration. The organization's flagship event is the International Astronautical Congress, a tradition dating back to 1950, which convenes in various countries. This congress serves as a global platform that unites over 6,000 representatives from the worldwide space community. This distinguished gathering includes leaders of prominent space agencies, esteemed figures from science centers and international organizations, renowned scientists, top-tier professionals from the private sector, as well as emerging researchers and students. Throughout the congress, participants have the invaluable opportunity to stay abreast of contemporary trends and the most recent innovations in the field of space exploration.
