Ariel Waldman: Can We Hack Space So Everyone Can Explore The Cosmos? [Video]
The founder of SpaceHack.org spoke at PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO about how open source participation can help us to cross seemingly insurmountable barriers.
What would happen if space and space exploration were as open and accessible as the internet? Ariel Waldman, the founder of SpaceHack.org, discusses what possibilities can be created through open source models of participation at the PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO.
Using the example of hacking space and science, Ariel describes how this process is about creating disruption and active participation. Opening up new environments and experiences changes our view of ourselves and our place in the universe, and does not have to be exclusively the realm of governments and billionaires. Technical knowledge isn’t an insurmountable barrier either; through open participation, anyone can explore any field of study or roam any planet.
