Tenerife boasts some of the clearest skies making it perfect for stargazing. At the Starmus festival (22-27 September) an eclectic mix of astrophysicists, astronauts and Nobel Prize winners will gather on the island to mix astronomy and music. Scientific presentations are accompanied by star guests including Queen's lead guitarist Brian May, who also happens to be an astrophysicist!
