    The concept behind this project  is to bring in the metaverse  a  series of  conversations about science and technology in a very easy to understand  way ,  trying to involve  at most the audience in order to promote the popularization of Science


    Each subject  will be developed through discussions mainly focused on the discoveries and inventions,  doubts and mysteries of the universe , both the one we live in and the  one inside of us.
