OBSERVATORY CASTEL GANDOLFO 2015 VATICAN 2 MAXIMUM CARDS
Country: VATICAN
Condition: OBSERVATORY CASTEL GANDOLFO 2015 VATICAN 2 MAXIMUM CARDS
Description: TAMBIÉN EN ESPAÑOL vvvvvvv 80th ANNIVERSARY OF THE VATICAN OBSERVATORY IN CASTEL GANDOLFO 19 November 2015 “As you see, what we are doing here is to assure I repeat that implicit, even explicit, defense of the Faith and Religion. That defense shines and is more than ever persuasive whenever respect for the faith is joined in a spontaneous way with the development of Science.” It was with these words in an address eighty years ago on 29 September 1935 that Pope Pius XI inaugurated two new telescopes and an astrophysical laboratory located at the apostolic palace in Castel Gandolfo: a double-astrograph telescope for taking spectra and photographic images of star fields; a large refractor telescope for direct observation; and an astrophysical laboratory for spectro-chemcial analysis. He also confirmed the management of the research facilities to Jesuit scientists. A plaque affixed to the outer wall of the facilities has the following words engraved on it: “Come, let us adore God the Creator”. The words recall those read by Pope Pius XI in his inaugural address and have served as an inspiration for both resident scientists and visitors alike. The set is celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Vatican Observatory in Castel Gandolfo with two postage stamps, each on a sheet of ten, with artwork by Daniela Longo. The 80 cent euro stamp depicts the papal palace in Castel Gandolfo where the new facilities were inaugurated, along with the profile of Pope Pius XI and the Schmidt telescope which was installed there in 1957. The 95 cent euro stamp features the large refractor telescope for direct observation installed in 1935 on the terrace of the papal palace and in the background the profile of Pope Francis and the moon. ***************** 80° ANIVERSARIO DEL TELESCOPIO VATICANO DE CASTEL GANDOLFO 19 de noviembre 2015 - CARTOLINE AMXIMUM «Lo que Nosotros hacemos aquí es asegurar a la Fe y a la Religión esa implícita, o mejor dicho, explícita apología que risplende y es cada vez más persuasiva cuando el obsequio a la Fe se muestra unido en fraternal abrazo al culto de la Ciencia». Con estas palabras de su discurso, hace 80 años, el 29 de septiembre de 1935, el Papa Pío XI inauguró dos nuevos telescopios astronómicos situados en la terraza del Palacio Apostólico de Castel Gandolfo y el nuevo Laboratorio de Espectroquímica, en el piso bajo de dicho Palacio, confirmando la dirección de ambos institutos a los jesuitas científicos. Una lápida fijada en la pared externa del telescopio de doble astrógrafo lleva incisas las palabras: «Deun Creatorem Venite Adoremus». Son palabras que quieren recordar, tanto a los oficiales del trabajo científico, como a los visitadores, las referidas anteriormente en el discurso de inauguración. La serie celebra el ochenta aniversario del nuevo complejo científico en Castel Gandolfo con una serie de dos valores en folio de 10 ejemplares, obra de la artista Daniela Longo. El sello de 80 céntimos de euros reproduce, además del edificio donde se sitúa el nuevo Telescopio, el rostro del Papa Pío XI y el telescopio Schmidt instalado en 1957 en la Villa Pontificia de Castel Gandolfo; el sello de 95 céntimos de euro, con al fondo la luna y el rostro del Santo Padre el Papa Francisco, reproduce el telescopio visual instalado en 1935 en la terraza del Palacio Pontificio.
