About the Author
Ariel Ekblaw is Founder and Director of the MIT Space Exploration Initiative at the MIT Media Lab. Her work has been featured in WIRED, MIT Technology Review, Harvard Business Review, the Wall Street Journal, and IASS and AIAA proceedings, and on the BBC, CNN, and NPR.
This lavishly illustrated book chronicles the MIT Space Exploration Initiative, founded by Ariel Ekblaw, which develops tools and projects "to truly make space for everyone" says astronaut Cady Coleman's foreword. Ekblaw says the project is "grounded" in the Earthrise image taken by Apollo 8, reinforcing humanity's responsibilities as citizens of the planet. The space experiments depicted range from biology and engineering to cookery and music, including social robots to relieve astronauts' isolation.
