Salt Telescope origins

Origins Social Media Toolkit

In July 2017, a team of three from University Communications traveled nearly 9000 miles to South Africa to document the work of UW–Madison researchers studying the greatest mysteries of science: our origins. In three chapters, we unravel the mysteries of the beginnings of the universe, life on Earth, and humankind.

This project launches on Monday, April 23, and we encourage you to share this Origins story with your audiences. Explore the stories at http://origins.wisc.edu/
