Beside poster, UNAWE Indonesia team also had a chance to play and share with the children. In this event, the children comes from 2 elementary school in Lembang and Bandung. They got invited to join a talk show with Malaysia Cosmonaut but after the lunch break, we had time to spent with them.

At first we planned to play several games, but there weren’t much time. So after lunch, we divide them into groups and gave them astronomy coloring picture. As a gift, we gave Solar System postcard to each kids, and 2 poster of Solar System and Milky Way to their school.

Although we have limited time to share with the children, we did happy to see the joy in their face when they get postcard. Wish we had enough time to play.

  • Jujur aku rada lupa alasannya kenapa dinamain Bimasakti. tapi kalau yg pernah gue denger katanya sih dinamain pake nama itu karena jaman dulu masyarakat jawa kuno ngeliat Milky Way sebagai bayangan item yang dikelilingi cahaya cemerlang atau semacam aura gitu. Trus muncullah ide nama Bimasakti dari tokoh Bima yang item gede (kok yakin yah item.. anak2 PANDAWA khan kelas ksatria bukannya biasanya kasta ini dr suku aria bukan dravida??. dan menurut org jawa kuno Bima itu selain item gede juga dilingkupi aura terang.) . Tapi alasan lain juga kayaknya terkait alasan politik jaman orde baru? kayanya gue kudu cari n baca2 lagi soal sejarah.

    kalau gue sendiri lebih suka nyebut milky way karena di malam yang sangat gelap kita bisa melihat seperti ada jalur putih yang melintasi langit. seperti sungai bintang2 gitu juga.
