NASA invites us to look at the moon tonight as a global initiative. MyConnectivity Luxembourg helps us better connect. And Sasha Kehoe goes over the week's news.
Observe the Moon Night - 21 October
Julie Anne Fooshee joins me online from blustery Scotland to talk about International Observe the Moon Night with NASA.
Now a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh in Science Communication and Public Engagement, Julie Anne has already spent over a decade working in the field, and was on the organising committee to celebrate the first ever International Observe the Moon Night back in 2009.
From standing outside, taking a look towards the sky and noticing the moon, to attending or hosting an event, and joining a global livestream, the point is to come together with other lunar enthusiasts and gaze upon our near-Earth neighbour.
The moon has spurred lunar science and exploration; some intensely challenging undertakings. But the moon is also celebrated in arts and culture. And NASA wants everyone to get involved at every level.

MyConnectivity is an initiative between the Ministry of Media, Connectivity and Digital Policy and LU-CIX (the Luxembourg Internet Exchange) and has been in existence since December 2021.
Julien Larios is the Technical Director of MyConnectivity and Marc Lis is the Head of Marketing and Communication. There is also an Advisory Community
It matters because connectivity is a key enabler for our increasingly digital society. Homes and businesses need to upgrade in order to be future-proof: limitless bandwidth, the switch from copper etc. We are moving into a world of AI and Smart Buildings.
