If nothing else, 2020 has lifted the veil, and a comprehensive global crisis is now drowning in humanity's collective awareness. Confronted with the urgency of our planetary predicament, we revisited Buckminster Fuller's “Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth,” a reminder that Earth is a spaceship with finite supplies and that collaboration is the key for our collective future. On our spaceship, you will encounter a diverse portfolio of imaginative projects, from astro-bacteria wearables, to open-access and shareable cubesat constellations, to musical instruments for our space voyages, to floating space habitats. We are also featuring Sojourner2020, the first international art open call that took a trip to the International Space Station this March.
We invite you to step in and engage with conversations on our planetary future.
