    • In the fashion of a love letter, two people created a video to revive the slumbering mission of the exploration of the heavens.

    “The sky is calling us”, a poetic video devoted to the exploration of the cosmos / 

    We must not forget that the very stars we see nowadays, where the same stars and phenomena that inspired the men of the past to astounded, to forge their culture and thought. They are the same stars that led humanity to embark on the most important search of all, that of knowledge. But, have we reached an impasse in the exploration of the skies?

    While it is true that the Apache Point Observatory recently generated a map that gathers all the information we have in the universe, it appears there are no more Carl Sagans that dream of intercepting other planets’ inhabitants, or Neil deGrasses that want to give the cosmos a narrative. The future of space exploration is more precarious than ever.

    Facing this situation, the creative writer from Oregon University, Nicolaus Sugai, in cooperation with the designer Lauren Geschke created an incisive and poetic video dedicated to NASA. It is a love letter of sorts in which they pose a question relevant to all of us.

    "The sky is calling us", asks us who will trace the universe if we continue to ignore the call of the skies.
