By 29 March in Libya will come thousands of tourists. Their goal - within a few minutes to observe the solar eclipse. For these minutes lovers willing to pay - and in the literal and figurative sense. Sea and air ports of Libya are preparing for a grand influx of tourism and amateur astronomy. It is expected that an eclipse in North African countries will come to the tourists from 47 countries - excluding Israel, emphasizes Space Daily."In Libya, the best conditions for observing the eclipse, - emphasized Minister of Tourism, Libya Ammar al Latif (Ammar el-Latif). - In the Vao Namoos in 2 thousand kilometers south of Tripoli, it will last 7 minutes, in Battal area in the northern border with Egypt - 4 minutes. A narrow strip of totality will be held from Brazil through northern Africa, Asia, and will end in Mongolia. In Russia, the total phase will not be seen.In Libya, in the areas the total phase unfolding "excellently equipped," according to campaign organizer Abdel Razak al Rushdie (Abdel Razak al-Rashed), tent cities at 7 thousand people. Cost of the tour for a maximum of 4 days - from € 1 thousand to € 2 thousand in the price included transportation to the places of observation of the eclipse and back. The tourism minister warned Libya of tourism operators on the implications for them in case of unjustified cost of tours and drew to ensure a huge influx of tourists 5 state companies. Of course, come and professional astronomers.Until now, Libya remains largely a "white spot" on the maps of tourist companies, despite the unique areas of the Sahara Desert and the wealth of archaeological monuments. Nevertheless, the gradual integration of Libya into the global economy allows it to begin to revive tourism - still the backbone of the country are oil and gas. The development of tourism prevent bureaucratic obstacles, especially in obtaining visas. Nevertheless, operators of "astronomical tourism" will be given the opportunity to get group visas cost not exceeding € 50 per person.Despite the importance of the event for the tourism industry, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, probably trying to solve the larger problems associated with the revival of scientific life in the country. Libya to become a "Mecca" not only for tourists but also for scientists. A year ago, in January 2005, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has ordered France 2-meter optical remote-controlled telescope, which is to become the largest optical telescope, at least in North Africa, while that for modest telescopes. The observatory will be located a few hundred kilometers to the south-west of the small village of Kufra, in the plateau 2200 m above sea level. The telescope should enter into service later this year.This area has a unique astroclimate due to dry air and the total absence of any kind was illuminated the night sky. Nevertheless, there are difficulties.Builders have to overcome political and military obstacles: the border in the disputed region of Chad, so that the area is replete with minefields. In addition, frequent sand storms are capable of extremely fast knock out the mechanics and, more importantly, optical telescope cost $ 13 million to combat the sand itself is planned to place the telescope in the dome with air-conditioning system. Around the observatory itself at a distance of 10 km from it will be posted 4 station, which will have advance warning of the approach of sandstorms.The need to develop fundamental astronomy gradually recognized by many countries in North Africa and the Middle East. Similar aperture telescopes is planned to commission of Iran and, together: Lebanon, Syria and the Palestinian Authority, Algeria, Tunisia and Egypt, and 6 of the Persian Gulf. However, while in the region only from Libya lacked the political will to realize the true value and to move toward them.
