In this weekend-long space workshop, become a member of the Society for Speculative Rocketry.

The aim of the Society is to explore the relationship between past and future realities of space travel and how they live within the public imaginary. The early rocketeers from Robert H. Goddard to the Berlin Society for Space Travel (from whom the Society takes inspiration for its name) worked their way from ideas to functional prototypes to the massive technological artifacts that took us to the Moon and beyond, initially guided by the fiction of Jules Verne and the writings of Russian cosmists such as Konstantin Tsiolkovsky.

 

On Friday, July 16, 2010, Final Frontier Design (FFD) will release their newest spacesuit, the "Frontier Prime."

Note: Event requires RSVP, you can do so at this link.

FFD is a partnership between Moscow based spacesuit engineer Nikolay Moiseev and Brooklyn based Eyebeam resident artist Ted Southern. The event will include a complete and fully functioning pressure suit unveiling and demonstration, arm and leg burst tests, limb torque demonstrations, and an interactive vacuum chamber glove box.
