MISSION STARDUST MSS16 Workshop - Nelly Ben Hayoun


Titled MISSION STARDUST; When David Bowie meets Aristotle in outer-space , this workshop is especially designed for ISU’s Master of Space Studies class and run by Nelly Ben Hayoun.

It investigates Aristotle’s Tragedy coercive systems and how they can be used in contemporary space education and outreach. Students are tasked to perform a narrative of their choice and to apply it to a space mission of their choice.
