Any sensible person would look at the night sky and see the horrible purgatory of the cosmos. Not Isa. Isa's been obsessed with outer space all her life, and she decided from an early age that she wanted to do one thing and one thing only; become an astronaut.
For twenty years she did everything she could to stay on track. And one day she just stopped dreaming of space. Using a planetarium projector, Isa will take you on a guided tour of the cosmos and her broken dreams.
