I have a new publication I am happy to share with you all. It’s my second publication in Nature Futures. Given the ongoing war in Ukraine, this piece is especially meaningful for me. It has gone through various title changes throughout the editing process starting off with “Where Have All the Gulags Gone” to “The Last Witness” to “Determined to Witness” and last to “Eyes on History.”

Importantly this flash isn’t all fictional. There was a nunnery that was turned into a gulag called the Sukhanovka, which is now a monastery.

I worry the horrific misery tourism I envision in my flash will come to fruition if we ever have use of this technology. I see it now with the movies people watch, the pricey excursions to see the Titanic, etc.

Read my story here and let me know what you think both of the flash and my author’s note:
