daVinci Art Science Roundtable –

The Lunar Codex: Artists, Authors, Filmmakers, and Musicians Dream

daVinci Art Science Roundtable

The daVinci art science roundtables are a facilitated monthly series of exploratory discussions for artists and scientists to talk about the culture of their two fields and how they might collaborate more meaningfully. Ultimately, the discussions also explore how collaborations intersect with public understanding of science. The roundtables began with the basic assumptions that discussion between the artists and scientists had the potential to create new knowledge and ideas that would be of interest to the participants and eventually to the public as well.

On November 16, 2022, the Orion spacecraft launched on NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS), orbiting the Moon and returning to Earth on December 11, in the first of NASA’s Artemis missions.

For NASA’s moon landings, and for the Lunar Codex, this was a prelude: Along with other payloads, Orion carried a flash drive that included “Three Faces of the Moon” a series of poems which will be archived on the surface in a 2024 mission by the Lunar Codex.

All in all, the Lunar Codex comprises six time capsules, each launched by a different mission.

Join us for this free event on Friday, March 8, 2024 from 1pm to 2pm EST.
