What does religion have to do with space exploration?
Quite a lot, actually. Space exploration is not isolated from culture; rather, it is imagined and practiced within it. As our project will show, the histories, ideologies, representations, and practices of religion are actually central to the project of conceiving and building human space futures. As we venture into space, religion and religious ideas will accompany us, whether we’re conscious of them or not.
Religion and space exploration have always been in conversation.
We’re making that conversation public.
