Beyond the Cradle: Envisioning a New Space Age

Space will be hackable. Space will be playful. Space grows ever more accessible to the space enthusiast through the reach of their DIY instruments, experiments, sensors and satellites, and soon through space tourism. This opportunity to design our interplanetary lives beckons to us.
