Today is a big day for the world of science!
🎉 We're celebrating the 100th aniversary since scientist and writer Arthur C. Clarke's born.
🛰️ He was the first one to introduce the concept of satellite telecommunications as soon as 1945 and to predict how they could change our world. One of his most famous quotes is
“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is by venturing a little way past them into the impossible.”
👉 So what about walking in his steps and show us how visionary you are for Africa's future? http://www.dstvstarawards.com/enter.html

Ayawen was our 2015 essay winner and had the chance to watch a live rocket lift-off from French Guiana on a perfect blue sky background 🚀🚀🚀
He told us that "There's nothing like witnessing a real life launch, from a very close up range of 10 kilometres. There's something symbolic about the countdown, especially entering the T minus ten seconds phase. It signifies both the culmination of months of work, and the start of a new space adventure, one that holds endless possibiliti...es."
How would you feel if you were minutes before a rocket launch? ☺️
