Help us create StellarStories: community storytelling about the cosmos

…we propose to leverage the Terrastories codebase to create a sister application of Terrastories for mapping oral histories about the cosmos, called StellarStories. We will adapt the Terrastories API, CMS, and front-end to work with an interactive canvas of the cosmos. Communities will be able to use the same features in Terrastories to control who has access to the content, decide on whether to host their stories online or offline, create curricula of stories for educational purposes, and design a public view of their StellarStories for a global audience to explore.
