Date with the Milky Way led to stars



A DAUGHTER’S kindergarten project on the solar system inspired Alex Cherney to take up astronomy.

That led to an interest in astro-photography and early this morning Melbourne time at Starmus – an elite-level new astronomy and arts festival in the Canary Islands – he was announced the winner of the festival’s photographic competition.

He beat more than 250 global entrants and part of the prize was an all-expenses-paid trip to the festival.
