The NOT was approached by Graphic Storytelling
students from VIA University College
Denmark, to work on an Applied Comics collaboration.
Applied Comics are a powerful tool to communicate
factual information to all target audiences. In their
collaboration with the NOT, the students developed
comics about various NOT-related subjects, with the
intent of informing people of some of the work that is
done at the NOT. There were four total comics made,
with the following topics: a day in the life of an
astronomer; observing exoplanets; supernovas; and
a comic about the NOT itself. The final product will be
shared in all of the NOT's social media as an outreach
mechanism to advertise the telescope and hopefully
raise people's interest on the NOT.
