Fun educational comic book about the South African bid to host the giant Square Kilometre Array radio telescope complex -- three 8 page stories featuring the adventures of Hannah, the local school newspaper's intrepid reporter in her quest t find out more about all the high technology stuff being built around her little hometown of Carnarvon in the Karoo desert region. Along the way she makes friends with a meerkat and a bat-eared fox and the Naledi, the astronomer.
