Thank you, Brno!

We would like to pass the deepest compliments to all the supporters of our research who came to the observatory on Saturday and waited in a long line. The enormous interest of us was immensely pleased and greatly overruled by all expectations.

We tested 160 volunteers for toxoplasmosis, 33 children attended causality research and both of our lectures "govern our lives parasites?" I "50 Shades of myths about atheism and religion" were filled to the last free space (180 + 50). We are very sorry for all that we unfortunately have not received, and we promise that next time we will increase our numbers to actually test the whole of Brno!

See you next spring!

Exit to Brno

Members of our "TOXOTÝMU" will be on this Saturday for the third time to Brno to the Observatory! The event takes place 6. April from 13 to 18 hours (and is free of charge to all). You can test yourself on toxoplasmosis and you will find your Rh factor. For children (6-17 years) we have prepared new research of the moral court, as a reward will receive a new badge with the experimental rabbit.

At 18 o'clock the lecture is followed by Prof. Flegra "Drives our lives parasites?" schedule and details here:

Two hang on the biological quarters in Viničné!

In the last two weeks they performed on a prestigious cycle of popularizačních lectures biological quarters in Viničné with the support of the association Andrias right now two authors from the Laboratory of evolutionary biology.

15th. 11. 2018, Jan evolvability focused on the problem of evolution. Is it a condition of a complex life or an obstacle in a flight? Or perhaps this phenomenon satisfies both conditions? You can also watch the lecture from the record.

22nd. 11. Then Robin Kopecký spoke of autonomous agents with permission to kill. It was not the terminators or other war robots, perhaps the name would imply, but the matter of our current culture is far closer-samořiditelná vehicles and evolutionarily-psychological aspects of their deployment, legal treatment and social perception. You can also watch this lecture from the record.

Pluto and beyond: the icy regions of the solar system

Our colleague Julie N-Wheels will perform 17. 9. 2018 from 17:30 in the hall H new buildings of the National Museum with a lecture Pluto and beyond: the icy regions of the solar system.

Beyond the orbit of Neptune lies an area of ice bodies called the Kuiper Belt. It includes the dwarf planet Pluto with its moons and many other similar bodies. But there is still no border on the solar system. The Oort cloud, from where the Dlouhoperiodické comets came, still goes on.

How many of them could be captured originally from other star systems? Can we discover larger bodies in these icy dálaváchs, as yet theoretically predicted "ninth planet"–and how to we're them? How Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud relate to "Interstellar visitors" of the type of Comet Oumuamua, which flew our solar system this year? What the New Horizons probe told us about Pluto, and what can we look forward to in the beginning of January 2019 when passing through the smaller body of the Kuiper belt? These areas are not very explored yet, but more interesting.

"Spanilá Ride" to Česká Lípa

High School in Česká Lípa

As part of our activities we also focus on the education of evolutionary biology and popularization of this field, as well as related topics. He last appeared on Jan. 14. 5. With a lecture on the history of evolutionary thinking, present and future of evolutionary biology at grammar School in Česká Lípa. During the four-hour course, designed mainly for secondary school teachers, he repelled from the first evolutionary ideas to modernism, Darwin, and modern evolutionary synthesis, which still represents the mainstream of evolutionary biology. At the same time, it has shown that many of the non-mainstream evolutionary hypotheses have been increasingly applied in recent years, and with evolution it may not be as simple as it may have seemed a few decades ago. After an excursion to makroevolučním matters, he also touched on the concepts he develops in the framework of the laboratory of Evolutionary Biology at the Department of Philosophy and History of natural Sciences of the Charles University and the interpretation of the past, present and future evolutionary Biology is so round.

Visit us at the Science fair!

The experimental rabbits popularizujíed with the support of the Andrias research activities in the field of evolutionary psychology and evolutionary parasitology at the science Fair in the Prague Letňanském exhibition centre! Come visit us 7. 9. 6. 2018 and don't forget to look also at the paranormal Challenge of the Sisyphus Skeptics Club or another of the hundreds of interesting projects.

Jan Extremofilní: bioorganisms

We invite you to the popularizing lecture by Jan Tomana, which will be held with the support of the association Andrias under the auspices of the popularizing section of the association Sisyphus-Pátečníků.

From the discoveries of recent years, Earth's organisms may seem capable of surviving almost anywhere. Aren't you? Surprisingly, we find an almost sterile environment on earth. So the question of what are the limits on which the living creatures can no longer survive is a good messy. But the solution to which we will go in the lecture can help us both in understanding the emergence and development of life on Earth and in finding similar organisms in other places in the universe.

Venue: Building of Faculty of Natural Sciences UK, Viničná 7, Lecture room B7 zoology on second floor.

After the lecture, there is a sitting in the restaurant at the Junction (Uterus).

Andrias at the Prague Museum night at the Turtle Museum of Man

Like last year, this year our members will attend a lecture cycle at the Turtle Museum of Man on the Prague Museum night 9. 6. 2018.

Program 9. 6. 2018


Hrdličkovo Museum of Man

The University Museum is a place of memory with a distinctive character. Its historical tradition and continuity are important. The permanent exposition presents themes of human evolution, development of individual, pathology and death.


Phantom models IV, Christian Fogarolli

Third exhibition from the cycle of site-specific temporal exhibitions in the premises of the Hrdličkova Museum of Man.

Accompanying events

First Aid-Project

Within the habitat, candidates can try resuscitation and learn how to solve unconsciousness, control respiration and much more. Expert tutors will also be happy to answer any questions the visitors have.

Time: 19:00-01:00


Back to the Future 2 (classroom photochemistry)

A lecture marathon focused not only on evolutionary biology will take place from 18:00 to 23:00 in the classroom photochemistry (ground floor Viničná 7, left).

Time: 19:00-00:00

Organizer: Andrias Z.S., AV21 and

Do robots have their rights? (Classroom photochemistry)
