Africa’s super telescopes ‘will inspire science boom’

http://edition.cnn.com/2013/12/12/tech/innovation/africas-super-telescopes/index.html

This article is about how astronomy and engineering are being promoted as a way to make some nations in Africa better by making education important.

This empowerment is best left to a quote in the article:

“When we train an engineer to do a job, they gain the right skills, meaning they can go out and contribute to the country’s economy in a number of different ways.”

This goal may be a way for African nations to create an infrastructure that refuses the e-waste dumped upon them in the video we watched earlier this semester.
