Join SpaceWatch.Global for an interesting and informative Space Café WebTalk featuring Professor Chris Welch, Head of Space Payloads Laboratory + Director MSc Space Studies, International Space University, Strasbourg, France.
This event will take place on 27 April 2021 at 4:00 pm CEST.
Although not widely known, since the start of the space age there have been a number of space art projects with works being flown on satellites, space vehicles and space stations and even taken to the Moon and Mars.
Now, with the increase of access to space, it becomes even easier for space to be used not just for science, security and commerce. As a result, a growing number of artists wish to use space for their own aesthetic/creative projects. For some people, such ideas represent an appropriate increase in the democratisation of space. For others, though, space art projects – especially orbital ones are – sometimes are seen as a spurious misuse of space resources.
Who is right?
Join us to discuss space art past, present and future and its role in the space domain.
The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions in dialogue with Prof. Chris Welch.
This Space Café WebTalk will be hosted by Torsten Kriening, publisher of SpaceWatch.Global.
