German Astronaut in Budapest 29 - 30 October.

ELTE Chair of Cartography and Geoinformatics (Member of HUNAGI) hosted the meeting devoted to the presentation of Prof. Messerschmidt. Hungarian Astronaut Bertalan Farkas also introduced a movie on the ISS. HUNAGI SG was invited by Prof. Dr. László Zentai of ELTE. Former Rector of the ELTE Prof. Dr. István Klinghammer and Dr. Gábor Gercsák were also present.

Schocking imageries were shown on the Aral-Sea. Due to the intensive irrigation of new plantations along the Sir-Darja, the Aral Sea experienced dramatic changes in size of its water surface.
