Join us March 10, 2018 for Beyond the Cradle: Envisioning a New Space Age

Space will be hackable. Space will be playful. Space grows ever more accessible to the space enthusiast—through the reach of DIY instruments, experiments, sensors and satellites, and soon through a new age of space tourism and exploration. This opportunity to design our interplanetary lives beckons to us.

Join us at the MIT Media Lab on March 10, 2018 as we envision, design, hack, and fab our space future! We'll hear from industry leaders in "New Space"; titans of the great satellite and probe missions; innovation engineers at NASA, ESA, JAXA, and India's SRO; sci-fi's greatest minds; Hollywood imagineers; and of course—astronauts!
