Astronomy "Progress" Is Not Universal

Embed

  1. On April 7, 2015, theoretical astrophysicist Dr. Chanda Hsu Prescod-Weinstein spoke up on Twitter about the conflict surrounding the construction of the Thirty-Meter Telescope (TMT) on Mauna Kea. But her points were broader than that, discussing how Western cultural notions of progress are not universal; the assumption that they are universal harms the people who do not share that culture. I thought her remarks were important and should be available for future discussion among the scientific community, so I asked for her permission to Storify them here.
  2. It started with this tweet.
