AstroDime presented a draft of INtransit V.6: “scientific american/La America Cientifica screening in Mexico City on May 25, 2010 at Universidad del Claustro de Sor Juana. Amanda, sam, and Bebe went and represented, with our first draft bilingual translation of this special journal issue. We met up with Sandra and Ilana and spent many wonderful evenings in La Condesa, D.F. at a great youth hostel. We had great conversations on art and science with Ilana, Sandra,  and Sandra’s husband, Pedro over mezcal and beers.

There’s probably too much to say at this point..except that I will follow up with a post and details. We were deeply honored and got a tremendous amount of feedback from the audience, students and some faculty after the screening. I’ve included a shot below of the University courtyard, which was the former convent of a very radical poetry writing nun, Sor Juana.

Here’s a portrait of Juana Inés de Asbaje y Ramírez de Santillana (her full name)

More to come..thoughts and ideas for future journals.
