Pervasive Media Studio Lunchtime Talk: Citizen Space Science

Where: Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, 1 Canon's Road, Bristol, BS1 5TX

When: 12 October 2012 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Exploration and the Personal Space Age Inexpensive CubeSats, ChipSats and Thin-Film Spacecraft/Landers/Rovers coupled with community fund raising platforms such as KickStarter are allowing anyone have their own hands on space science and exploration program. Michael Johnson from JA, the open source open access space company, will show you how you can have your own kitchen table space program, describe how citizen space exploration is about to move from low earth orbit proof of concept to interplanetary missions and explain how anyone can contribute to our understanding of the solar system and perhaps even have a little bit of it named after them! This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week. Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday. Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who???s interested in what we do. After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm. Let us know if you???d like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around. Send an email to
