Science fiction has often inspired scientists by helping them imagine what might be possible. What galaxy outside of our own Milky Way would you like to visit? What might you see there? What might you encounter on your journey?

The Challenge:

Use these instructions to create a Sci-Fi travel guide to another galaxy in our universe. Submit your galaxy travel guide to OLogy.

Note:

  • You can download, print, and use the PDF template. Submit one or more pages from it. 
  • OR you can create your own original one-page galaxy travel guide. 

How to Submit:

Have your parent or guardian email a high-res image of your galaxy travel guide to ology@amnh.org by Monday, January 4th

If your parent or guardian is comfortable sharing this information, please include:

  • a short caption for your galaxy travel guide
  • your first name and the first letter of your last name
  • your age
  • your state (or province) and country

Note: Do not include a photo of you or other personal information.
