Greetings, earthlings!

We warmly invite you to commemorate the 50th anniversary year of the Apollo 11 moon landing with us at MIT Space Week: three packed days celebrating space exploration writ-large, across the Institute. 

 

We stand at the cusp of interplanetary civilization. The opportunity to seed an inspiring, multi-faceted, and profoundly creative vision for the next 50 years of space exploration beckons to us. Join us as we celebrate the storied feats of MIT AeroAstro and Draper Labs for the Apollo program, and the array of technology developments, space missions, scientific inquiry, and industry entrepreneurship since, across AeroAstro, EAPS, MIT Media Lab, EECS, Sloan, and others. We hope you'll enjoy this unique occasion to look to the future, to join together as a community catalyst for MIT’s next half-century of space and earth exploration, to launch new visions for what a “better world” might look like in our cosmos.

 

Preference given to MIT community for in-person registration. Public livestreams will be made available widely, where possible.

Beyond the Cradle

MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative

March 14, 2019

 

Join us on Thursday, March 14 for the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative's third annual event, Beyond the Cradle: Envisioning a New Space Age.

 

With humanity at the cusp of interplanetary civilization, we are actively building the technologies, tools, and human experiences of our sci-fi space future. On March 14, 2019 we'll hear from NASA scientists and Hollywood storytellers, from “New Space” industry vanguards leading space tourism and lunar settlement, and from engineers of the intrepid probe missions now far beyond our planet neighborhood. Come to meet the astronauts and innovation engineers at space agencies around our home world, and the authors and artists seeding our imagination of other worlds!
