Astronomy to inspire young Emiratis

Hasan El-Hariri has been fascinated by space for all his life. He bought his first telescope when he was 16 and, after using it to look at the moon, he was hooked on astronomy. This love drove him to start the Dubai Astronomy Group in 1993 and, since then, it has grown from a handful of people to some 3,000 members. Now, El-Hariri dreams of inspiring young children to look at the sky and find that same fascination that drove his whole life.
