Unknown Fields: From the Atomic to the Cosmic

On Monday I am going to go to this at the AA. Not only is Michael Madsen talking but also the Ministry's good pal Mark Pilkington. Try and make it if you can!

Summer 2011 Trajectory Public Forum

Date: 11.07.2011
Time: 11:00:00

This year, on the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first manned space flight and the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl Disaster, we pack our Geiger counters and

spacesuits and chart a course from the atomic to the cosmic to investigate the unknown fields between nature and artifice.

Joining us for the Atomic to the Cosmic forum will be an ensemble of artists, authors, scientists and designers. Through the lens of these two events we will re-examine our preservationist and conservationist attitudes toward the natural world and spin tales of the ecologically fragile and the technologically obsolete.
To be the first to enter the cosmos, to engage, single-handed, in an unprecedented duel with nature-could one dream of anything more!
