“Telescope” – A sci-fi film presented by DUST

“Earth as we know and love it may become a thing of the past.   That’s the starting premise of Collin Davis’s “Telescope.”  This thoughtfully crafted short film follows a brave cosmic archaeologist as he travels back in time to capture photos of the once vibrant planet.  As he travels further back in time, we learn that the galaxy and time he came from has a lifeless Earth with no organic life left on its surface.  It’s hard to finish the film without feeling nostalgia for an Earth that is being taken for granted.”

The great thing about this film is that, even though it’s protagonist is Black, his blackness is somehow more connected to the cosmos than to the Black experience on Earth. At any rate, I applaud the filmmaker for creating this thoughtful piece. Look for more here on X Nubia Phi.

One step closer to an African space program

“Pan African University Institute for Space Sciences to begin operation soon”

The Pan African University (PAU) Institute for Space Sciences curriculum includes Space Engineering (Satellite Engineering, Ground Segments), Space Sciences (Space Physics, Satellite Communications, Navigation and Positioning), and Space Applications (Astronomy and Earth Observations). I’d be curious to know what projects Stellenbosch University, University of Cape Town, North-West University, Durban University of Technology, University of Fort Hare, University of Pretoria, and University of KwaZulu-Natal have these graduate students working on. I’m sure some inner city classrooms would love to connect with these African grad students. How can we make that happen?
