History changed on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik, thus marking the dawn of the Space Age. With humankind gaining access into outer space for the first time in history, the launch of Sputnik changed the way we see our planet and we see ourselves in relation to the universe.

Planetary Collective’s film “Overview” will be shown as part of the AstroArt Programme in collaboration with Astronomers Without Borders (AWB) Global Astronomy Month (GAM) on April 12, from 14:30 to 16:30 UT.
The film, which has garnered more than 1.7 plays on Vimeo since its premiere at Harvard University on December 7, 2012, features interviews with five astronauts and portrays the enormous power of the Overview Effect (the cognitive shift resulting from seeing the Earth from space and in space) in words and images.
Students who will be getting an M.A., M.F.A. or Ph.D. on a subject related to the intersection of art, science and technology are encouraged to submit an abstract of their thesis to LABS (Leonardo Abstract Services). This peer-reviewed database has been in existence for over 10 years and functions as a way for international artists and scholars to learn about the work of the next generation.
