Welcome to our sixth anniversary issue - a Space Special. We have a 26-page Q&A section totally devoted to the world out there,
a set of extremely cool, retro-style posters from NASA, and a celebration of India’s three space heroes in In Focus. Also, from this issue, we’re thrilled to initiate a page featuring responses from BBC Knowledgers from our social media platforms. This month, you tell us, appropriately, why you deserve an introduction to Elon Musk.
Not a space cadet? We’ve got our usual menu of other great stories.
Poo scientist, lava lover… there’s a bizarre option to inspire you in
The Most Extreme Jobs in Science. If you’ve ever felt a twinge
of anxiety about putting your trust in a metal bird, there’s reassurance in How Safe is Your Plane? You’ll meet the intriguing geladas of the Ethiopian Highlands on our pages, and discover why some historians consider the Gupta Period the Golden Age of India. And, from this issue on, we’re excited to foray into the world of travel and food with nuggets and tidbits from across the globe, and we will soon be adding more in literature, art and creativity to the magazine.
My name is Primrose, I bring on board years of experience in writing
about women and travel, and I’ve signed on to be the new captain at
the helm of BBC Knowledge. And, as you may have worked out by now, I’m more into Star Trek than Star Wars.
I’d love to hear from you - tell me what you’d like us to feature
and email us at email@example.com I’d love to have you join me on my grand new adventure: discovering new worlds and
thoroughly exploring our own.
