“Nanotechnology can completely change the way we do space exploration”
For years NASA has been pioneer in the development and use of nano technologically engineered materials that allow new frontiers in space exploration to open. Ultimately, these materials will allow space exploration to become more efficient, economical and accessible to human beings. What if we could engineer a material that could adapt itself to any extreme living condition?
Artemis 2050 is presented as the first commercial experience into the nano-world. The intention of the project was to make the invisible world of nanotechnology visible by creating a comparison with a mission to outer-space. The general public is often detached from such scientific developments which are mostly hard to understand and to visualize. The goal with Artemis 2050 was to explore what aesthetic possibilities could be used to portray these nano worlds and make them accessible and desirable to the public.
Artemis was a program founded in 2050 by NASA’s nanotechnology department in which the first humans were able to travel into the depths of the nano territory with newly developed technology. The program began as a way for scientists to understand the properties of the materials they were developing for missions to Mars and other planets. After successful missions into this new territory, NASA agreed to bring nano travelling to members of the public.
You have been selected to be part of the first group of people to experience first-handed this new territory. Today the Artemis shuttle will be voyaging to the interior of NASA’s recently developed material (name remains under confidentiality) which has been designed to adapt to extreme environmental and atmospherical conditions. A team of scientists will be placing the material under a series of severe circumstances to test its adaptability whilst you travel on the inside.
