Space is not just a technological endeavour! As an entirely new domain for human experience, all aspects of humanity will be engaged by space and its exploration: Philosophy, History, Economy, Law, and of course, Art. That is why at SG[France]2021 we wish for you to tell us what Space means to you. Does the thought of the great expanse outside our little blue dot of a planet fill you with awe? Inspiration? Dread? Or perhaps you’re excited about how space technologies change our lives on Earth? Whatever it is, we want you to show us.
