In this issue of Jornal da USP Mais, we speak with Lisandra Figueiredo Cipriano, professor and researcher at the Institute of Astronomy, Geophysics and Atmospheric Sciences (IAG) at the University of the South Pacific, who details the origin of the initiative, its main goals, and how the pandemic has broadened the project’s horizons.
