Martha Cecilia Bustamante de la Osa He is a Colombian national born in the coffee-rich Calarca Quindian city there Among the mountains appeared a starry sky full of beauty and mysteryAnd between the smell of coffee he discovered his passion for the stars as well as for physics.
Her love for science took her to the old continentThere in France, the land of freedom, chosen as her homeland by Marie Curie, one of the most important women of science in history, this talented Colombian decided Unleash your unique ability in astrophysics.
