Living Ethnoastronomy: Discovering the Connectedness of the Human Spirit beneath the Night Sky
Hechter, Richard Paul; Awad, Nayif
Physics Teacher, v55 n6 p369-370 Sep 2017
Richard Hechter and Nayif Awad wrote this article from opposite sides of the Earth and are getting ready to meet again in December 2017 to continue their project of bringing the world together through physics education, one constellation at a time. With the events in France, Belgium, Germany, United States, and United Kingdom fresh in their minds, there is not a more critical time than now to work on this project. Although some people believe that the authors (Richard, a Canadian Jew, and Nayif, a Palestinian Arab) should not be colleagues on an international project rooted in global unity, and certainly not be dear friends, they carry on as their work transcends the myopic limitations that society has placed on us. Herein, they share their story.
