In the special Scientific Imagination x A Sign in Space series, we explore the theory and process behind a fascinating project called “A Sign in Space.” We’ll be talking to a team of experts from different parts of the world and different fields of study.
A Sign in Space is an interdisciplinary project by media artist Daniela de Paulis, in collaboration with the SETI Institute, the European Space Agency, the Green Bank Observatory and INAF, the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics.
The project consists in transmitting a simulated extraterrestrial message as part of a live performance, using an ESA spacecraft as celestial source. The objective of the project is to involve the world-wide Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence community, professionals from different fields and the broader public, in the reception, decoding and interpretation of the message. This process will require global cooperation, bridging a conversation around the topics of SETI, space research and society, across multiple cultures and fields of expertise.
In this episode, we focus on the theory and concept behind the project, as well as the meaning of the message it carries. Our special guests for this episode are Daniela de Paulis, Frank White, and Jörg Matthias Determann. They’ll be sharing their insights and ideas with us.
Join us as we dive into the world of scientific imagination and uncover the secrets of “A Sign in Space” with our amazing guests.
