SpaceX plans to send Artists to the Moon!

Written on December 14, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

SpaceX’s ambition has never failed to surprise its investors, whether its coming up with landing spacecrafts or taking a Tesla Roadster to space. However as recently announced at SpaceX’s headquarters, Yusaku Maezawa, a 42-year-old Japanese retail entrepreneur and art collector, plans to pay for a ride on the Big Falcon Ship to the moon and back.

The week-long journey will be accompanied by companions that were claimed to be half a dozen of artists. His initiative is for these artists to visit the moon and come up with artworks based on what they had seen/felt. Since the few people that have been to the moon were professionals in their field and haven’t necessary shared their experience with the rest of humanity, Maezawa claims to reach humanity with something as close to us as the moon.

Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, claimed that the whole project will cost about $10 billion, but costs could vary since the project is predicted to happen in 2023. Press regarding the security of the expedition have been raised, however Musk has assured that the idea is crazy and that it will be difficult. Although there will be risks Musk plans to minimize these risks with unmanned expeditions and extensive testing. Hopefully in 2023 we will be able to say that we sent humans to appreciate the moon in a way that for millennia we weren’t able to do.

Written on December 14, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

The Air and Space Club had the incredible opportunity to host, accompanied by IE’s, Technology & Innovation, AI and Energy Clubs an event about Space Mining and AI. With the presence of Offworld’s Co-Founder, James Murray, which company’s envision the automation of Space mining and exploration by combining robotics with AI and launching them to space. With more than 60 registered including staff members of IE, the talk was inspirational and very futuristic giving us insights about how the industry is evolving and Offworld’s progress in doing so.

The talk itself took about one hour and half, in which was followed by catering where students and professionals were incentivized to network and discuss about Space Mining. The event left ambition in every single one of us since the market is so close from becoming reality. It was very thoroughly explained the importance of this next step into our society and that humanity must shift their point of reference referring to cleaner energy and exploration.
The event inspired the audience about “Astroperneruship” and the future of the new Space industry and it was an honor to have such a leader in the field to do the talk. We look forward to hosting similar events where topics that may seem futuristic but important are discussed about. To have IE as a name associated with the future of technology and innovation it is important that we partake these topics.
