Space can be viewed from very different perspectives. During the Natolin Space Week (24 February – 1 March 2020), Natolin students organized plenty of activities and talked about Space Policies, Space Law, Space Security, Space Sustainability, but also Space Art…
The CACTUS Society and the HTTPS Society put in place a Space Gallery in which the Space was represented in different artistic expressions (photography, painting, films or music). Thanks to the CNES (Centre National d’Études Spatiales), it also included a real scale model of the Ariane 5 Spaceship.
Also within this framework, the CACTUS Society organised a Sci-Fi short story contest "Write the Space". Aliens, astronauts, rockets or an Intergalactic Criminal Court were just some of the topics of the twelve stories competing for the first place. After reading the stories out loud during the opening evening of the Natolin Space Week, the jury and the public together chose the winner story "Untitled" written by Álvaro MARTÍN MORÁN. The second prize went to Jacopo GIRAUDO for his story "In that distant corner of the universe" and the third to German CARBONI. Gabrielle BERNOVILLE won the prize of the audience for her story in Spanish "La historia desconocida de Alicia en el mundo de las maravillas cósmicas".
Congratulations to all the students for their creativity!
