From the Advocate:
In the futuristic year of 2017, hostilities spill beyond Earth when conflict arises between the Indian and Chinese moon colonies. Result: two destroyed colonies, 500 dead.

Amy Brouillette is a program aide at Highland Road Park Observatory, and she envisions a future where humans discover complex life on a distant planet by traveling through another dimension. The 23-year-old Baton Rouge resident has been displaying her multi-media exhibit at the observatory on Saturday evenings.
“We jumped at the chance to show it,” said Christopher Kersey, observatory manager. He said the display, known as Project Mayflower, is the observatory’s first art display.
