For the Love of Astronomy
BY NEIL GHOSH
@ VOL 9
ON JUN 30, 2012
Neil Ghosh shares his love for astronomy, and takes us on a tour that covers different aspects of the science, tying it to his own personal learning of it. (in English)
We have visited and moon and come back, sent space crafts beyond the edge of solar system which are still sending us signals. We have seen beyond our galaxy through telescopes and even discovered earth like planets in alien solar systems. Human being's quest for celestial outreach has began thousands of years ago and increased dramaically ever since.
This is a small tour of how it typically started with absolutely no scientific background and why does the space thrills people every time we talk about it. The nature has always surprised us beyond our wildest imagination. The scale of numbers and units are literally astronomical.

BY JOHN MILROY

PKN Launches in Des Moines Tonight

Runs Within - A Motif Project
Karyna Wallace tells a story by way of poetry; it revolves around the prints she developed under the theme "Vampires," as assigned by her professor. In her presentation (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) she offers up new interpretations: instead of drawing bats and bloody black cats, she analyses a vampire's needs and wants, and compares them to our human desires. She notices that the needs and wants that run within us take us through several stages of emotions throughout our lives. It is through this process that we grow spiritually and physically. We all experience these sensations, but the real question is: Can we reach our ultimate goal?
Tips for Stop Motion That Also Apply to Everyday Life
We kick off a new week of "Presentations of the Day" with a fresh presentation from last week's PKN Tokyo Vol. 102. Abi Laurel loves producing stop motion animation, and in her presentation she uses the things she's learned through that work as the basis for tips that are useful for both stop motion and everyday life.
Kristof Crolla goes into detail (at PKN Hong Kong Vol. 15) on his work on "Golden Moon", an installation at the 2012 Mid-Autumn Festival Lantern Wonderland in Hong Kong. From initial design to building and execution, Crolla leads the audience through the process of creating the moon and tops the presentation off with stunning photos of the finished product.

In “Concepts in Time and Motion” from PKN Brooklyn Vol. 2, he goes into depth on the perception humans and other beings have of time, space, speed, and motion, and displays his work: two cars crashed together incredibly slowly over the course of two months.
