Orbital Space Art - New Wonder of the World or Dangerous Space Junk?

With the advent of more affordable access to outer space, artists are now beginning to create works of art that can be seen by millions of people on Earth. The latest project along these lines, simply known as “The Orbital Reflector,” is a reflective, inflatable sculpture affixed to a small satellite that, once ejected, will orbit the earth for several weeks before disintegrating upon re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere. The artistic vision of Orbital Reflector, according to their website, “encourages all of us to look up at the night sky with a renewed sense of wonder, to consider our place in the universe, and to reimagine how we live together on this planet.”

Or will this new art just create space junk, a showboating  stunt that could start a precedent  for invasive and uninvited intrusion into the celestial canopy of all the people of the world? To help us evaluate this new kind of art, we speak with Kit Galloway, early high tech artist, and co-founder of the orginal Electronic Cafe.

Future News - Microwave Space Plane, Consumer Drone Weaponized, New Pain Drugs from Genetic Mutants, Newly Discovered 'Goldilocks Planet,' Metal Foam to the Rescue, Space Artist Don Davis and the New Horizons Pluto Mission, Update on the God Helmet.  

Listen Now to Dr. Future Show 7.29.2015

We broadcast to you this week from a remote lake in the mountains of Quebec, Canada.  Lots of cool stories and Don Davis, Space Artistnews to share, including a report from Don Davis, a great space artist who shares with us his adventures at the New Horizons Mission Control Center, where history was made earlier this month, as we received the first closeup images of the dwarf planet, Pluto.  

Somewhat disturbing this week is the story on the weaponization of a consumer drone by a teenager, a sure sign of how we need to evolve our consciousness more quickly, to keep up with our technological evolution.  To help with that, we also bring you the latest research on the God Helmet, which brings a higher presence into your sphere of awareness by stimulating the temporal lobes of the brain.

Enjoy!

Meet Space Art Pioneer Frank Pietronigro

Listen Now to Frank Pietronigro

Frank is the first American artist to create “drift paintings” where his body floated within a three-dimensional painting that he created in zero gravity aboard NASA’s KC135 aircraft. On April 4, 1998, Pietronigro flew from the NASA Johnson Space Center, aboard a KC135 turbojet, to create ‘drift paintings’ as the artist’s body floated within the 3-D kinetic painting space facilitated by parabolic flight and microgravity. He appropriated modernist painting conventions using similar techniques employed in abstract impressionism but with the intention of having very different outcomes within a postmodern  situation. Frank painted by squeezing rainbow colored acrylic paints from pastry bags into the space surrounding his body.

 We discuss the whole field of Space Art with Frank and look at what interesting space art projects are coming up!
