The archaeology of an inhabited solar system (in English)

Haus der Universität


Prof. Dr. Alice Gorman (Flinders)

Humans have lived on Earth for approximately three million years, but it’s only in the last 60 that they have ventured beyond the terrapause into interplanetary space. As a result, the planets, moons and asteroids are now lidered with broken probes and dead robots. From the perspective of a space archaeologist, these artefacts are not merely junk. They form an archaeological record which maps human beliefs about their place in the cosmos. What fears and desires are represented by these discarded technologies? This lecture is part of the lecture series „Critical Outer space Studies“. (Auf Englisch)!
