Despite of the natural beauty of the dark skies, astronomy has not been valued as it should in Tanzania. We couldn’t say this has always been the case as there are a lot of connections between most tribes and the skies above within Tanzania. Probably it is our education which has keep us distance from the beauty and wonders of the skies enough to awake our natural curiosity.
We see this as people becomes educated they no longer bother about their roots, families no longer sit around the fire at night and make stories, parents no longer take their children to grandparents during school breaks, children no longer listen to stories from their grandparents and all these disconnect us from who we truly are. We gradually lose touch with nature and embrace technology instead.
But this won’t be for long as the greatest unification is about to come through astronomy, in which everything will be question and everything will be interesting. Astronomy has puzzled the minds of the greatest scientist in human history and through their inventions and desire to unearth the unknown universe we have come to be what we are today.
The time for similar thing to happen in Tanzania has come, and it is through the efforts of Telescopes to Tanzania and wonderful people who have donated in AWB Telescopes to Tanzania campaign through the Indiegogo site, as well as the greatest contribution from Andy Green few days before the end of the campaign.
Now that, what was searched for is reached, all that is left is to put every word into action.
