On campus, this week’s showing at the I. G. Greer Cinema is another screening of Judas and the Black Messiah! Starring Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield in an Oscar winning and Oscar nominated performance, respectively, the film chronicles the final days of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton. It’s an intense and visceral ride through a tumultuous and important time in American history. Showtimes are 7pm and 9:30, tickets are $2 at the door!
In local Boone news, the High Country Press reports that the mid-October “Spooky Duke” 5 and 10 K ultimately raised over $25,000 for children in the High Country with special needs! This is the most the event has ever raised in its history since beginning in 2011. Great job, racers!
Nationally, a VERY exciting story from NPR. Astronauts on the International Space Station have reportedly grown green Chile in space and prepared themselves their very own space tacos. These are the first chiles ever grown in space, and are reportedly part of a wider mission to expand the number of crops that astronauts can grow on missions. I wonder if they had those tacos con SPACE-o! Get it, like queso?
Finally, our weather courtesy of Booneweather DOT COM. We can expect a high of 44° and a low of 33 today, very chilly, and most excitingly, some possible SNOWFLAKES later tonight!
