To the Stars and Back

This 12.5

This week (Monday, 3 October) on GIS Spotlight, we revisit a telescope project, showcase working artists and promote entrepreneurship.

One of the brightest "stars" to rise in the east/northeast and traverse the night sky now is the solar system's biggest gas giant, the planet Jupiter. If you don't have a telescope, take hope. Join us as we visit the University College of the Cayman Islands to see efforts underway to set up a home for a donated telescope.

Hear how you can view the night sky in great detail, once it's set up. Learn what is planned in science and astronomy lessons for students and the whole community to put the sophisticated equipment to maximum use.

Next, it's a behind the scenes look at the work of three artists in residence at the National Gallery. Discover the materials and art forms they use to bring their imagination to life. Find out how you can catch their self-curated exhibit until 31 October.

After that, we switch gears and transport you to the business world. See the Department of Commerce and Investment's Trade and Business Licensing Board at work effecting changes aimed at streamlining the licensing process. Hear how best to access the service to meet your needs.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8.30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website:
