THEME
PLASMA 6 turns its gaze towards the pale blue dot. This issueโ€™s Earth-centric focus is highlighted by articles featuring everything from environmental issues to artistic perspectives, and ultimately sheds a new light on the meaning of our space endeavors. To our astonishment, this yearโ€™s Earthly theme has been more on point than ever before. Issues spanning the climate crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, and racial inequity has allowed us to reflect with more intensity. Who are we as individuals? As a society? And what does this mean in the context of space exploration? The stars are gazing upon us as we take note of ourselves. Weโ€™ve made some great technological advances! But is that enough? PLASMA 6, much like Voyager 1 on Feb 14 1990, takes a look back at ourselves. We delve into the history of the past so that we can better appreciate and tackle the pressing questions of today, providing the reader with a more introspective and human issue.

STORY BEHIND THE COVER
We took inspiration from the year 2020 as a whole, flipping our lives. David Benski our super talented designer wanted to do an unconventional cover. So it's better to forget what you think a cover is :)
