Hailing from PechaKucha Night Santander, for this weeks PechaKucha People we'd love to introduce you to the ever curious and creative Jónatan Piedra. Born in the fantastic 20th century, Jónatan has always been curious about everyday things, such as the origin of the universe. He has been studying and researching the field of physics for years and believes that it is own choice, but also his duty, to teach and talk about physics to others, whether they be other physicists, children in schools, or grown-ups in a theater at a PechaKucha Night. In fact, you can catch him this week at PechaKucha Night Santander Vol. 9 on May 24th. If you're just as curious as he is about physics, make sure you don't miss out on this great event this Friday! Thanks for everything you do, Jónatan, and we can't wait to see what else you've got!

            PechaKucha Night Viña del Mar flew into first place to win this week's PechaKucha Poster Spotlight!
