Beyond the Cradle

MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative

March 12, 2020

 

Join us on Thursday, March 12 for the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative's fourth annual event, Beyond the Cradle: Envisioning a New Space Age.

 

The Moon awaits, with Mars soon to follow. As we reflect on the momentous significance of last year's Apollo 11 moon landing anniversary, the next 50 years of interplanetary civilization beckons. Join us in co-designing our space future, where we weave the tapestry of the space industry with 60 leading space visionaries—from the space scientists and astronauts at the vanguard of exploration, to the CEOs and founders building a burgeoning space ecosystem, to the artists and storytellers shaping our conception of the possible.

 

“The Earth is the Cradle of Humanity—but mankind cannot stay in the cradle forever.”

—Konstantin Tsiolkovsky

To the Moon to Stay

MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics + MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative

March 14, 2020

 

This March, as part of MIT’s Space Week, we will be hosting the first ever MIT Lunar Hackathon, “To the Moon to Stay” - a partnership between MIT's Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the MIT Media Lab’s Space Exploration Initiative. Building on the momentum of the MoU signed between MIT and Blue Origin to include an MIT payload onboard Blue Origin’s first mission to the Moon, this hackathon will galvanize the MIT community to reimagine our collective return to the moon. 

 

This one-day hackathon will bring together individuals across disciplines in MIT to contribute to determining the nature of the experiment and imagining future lunar activities. Participation in the hackathon is limited to the MIT community, but team pitches will be open to the public.
