Interesting facts

On Chilean coast of the Pacific Ocean there is a Port called Puerto Domeyko and at the foot of the Cordilleras there is a town of Domeyko. On the map of Chile it is possible to find a mountain range with the same name, and in the Andes – Volcanic Ridge the Cordillera de Domeyko. Zoologists  can name the shellfish Nautilus Domeykus, geologists can demonstrate the mineral Domeykite, astronomers – to show asteroid 2784 Domeyko, and botanists may offer to admire the violet Viola Domeykiana.

All these names were given in honour of one person – our countryman Ignacy Domeyko (1802–1889), who laid foundation and made substantial contribution to geology, mineralogy and many other sciences in that country. Ignacy Domeyko is a national hero of the Republic of Chile. The National Library and the University in Santiago, a number of streets, squares, public and sporting companies, grants and funds in the country were named after Domeyko. In honour of Domeyko the medal was coined in Chile and the monument was erected in Santiago.

«In our country there is no more popular and respected name other than the name of Ignacy Domeyko. Mr. Domeyko is not only a scientist, but he is the Apostle of Science», – stated in the Chilean newspapers about our countryman.
