The Traveling Telescope Inspiring Africa’s Next Astronomers
Feb 14 2018
If there’s anyone in education who is aiming for the stars, it’s Kenyan astronomer Susan Murabana. On a mission to inspire Africa’s young people—and especially young women—to become scientists, Murabana and her husband started The Travelling Telescope, an initiative that brings a mobile telescope to students across Africa, many of whom have never seen space up close. So far, they’ve brought the stars to more than 40,000 young people and counting.
