TAGS and MOTTO for this edition: no budget rocketry, utopian launchpad, terraforming our home, DIY space kits, third world and second world space exploration, jobless on earth employed in space, the cosmoproletariat,
SPECIAL NOTICE: this spaceship earth event is free of charge, an open data/open knowledge event, art & science outreach event, fighting against the commercialization and privatization of the known universe and for a common cosmological experience, for space exploration availability regardless of species, gender, age, creed, class, sexual orientation, galaxy of origin, scientific or non scientific background. It’s an event celebrating all sorts of space revolutionaries, wacky cosmologists, cosmoproletarians, science communicators, string theorists, amateur astronomers, space artists and enthusiasts, musicians, cyborg feminists, futurists, transhumanists, time travelers, Sci-fi fans, documentary directors, cyberneticians, dogs, chimps, water bears (yes tardigrades!) and countless modest others that have preceded us our there and have made possible our zero gravity cosmic dreams. ST.
in the framework of
SIMULTAN 2013 – ‘Popular Unknown”
THE THX list is very long, nearly as long as from here to the our sun star. Here are some excerpts: Vlad Cadar (for the warp drive energy & all the crew-ul @ TAMTAM, especially Florin ‘Vizu’ Vizuroiu for his patience,magic tech and loudspeaker sound), Rares Neur0 Moldovan, Sergiu Sas (for the altars), Gabi Pnea (for the good and wise words and spells), Vasile Leac (for healthy Cosmic Cooking & Marketplace knowhow), Flo'(for constant blogging & his incredible space art collage and science fiction cover art prints+timely visuals), Kozma Levente(for surviving the Simultan timelines), Felix Petrescu WakaX (for his humour and incredible crispy sound), Alex Maniu (for his incredible plans to terraform planets in the likeness of Orson Wells), Marius Chirita (for the comprehensive physics intros), Catalin Vasii (for leading us down the math thousand fold path) and to all the others for establishing innumerable habitats, biospheric domes, space installations and tasks on board and out in space under Zero Money and Zero Gravity. You know those aliens really love you so much, that they might just abduct you in the end! And last but not least to Julia Linda Schulze who sadly couldn’t but was in body&mind&spirit the inspiration for this event – because of all the links, videos, the Libanese space program.

NEW COZZZZzzzzzmoNAUTICA IN WESTGERMAnYYYY
Himmelfart / Ascension Day: 1st of June
“sleep-over concert night & cosmological knowledge wonder show”
with STEFAN TIRON and guests from musical, artistic and scientific local scenes
WestGermany, Skalitzerstr.133/ 2nd floor, from 9pm
Reclaim space-exploration as an earthly phenomenon. It was always prohibitively expensive and available only to big budgets, trained specialists and national agencies. Nevertheless today basically any familiar environment can be equipped with minimal space±time travel requirements.
WestGermany will be imaginary spaceship and our base to simulate trough sound and a stream of documentaries (new and old).
You don’t need state-of-the-art technology to wonder at the sublime and destructive gamma-ray bursts, or follow the scorching demise of the earth 5 billion years from now. Lets look down and wonder at our blue spaceship earth, for the first time like Gagarin before us.
Artists and space aficionados have always managed to circumvent the limits and barriers,
Together we want to use a way to shortcut cosmic distances and enjoy kitchen-sink space travels here on earth – as it is also already the time to celebrate the unfulfilled dreams of space exploration; the uncompleted missions, the cosmonauts left hanging in orbit because of new political re-mappings, and corny space tourism taking over the grandiose scientific enterprise.
Our journey on June the 1st doubles not only paradigmatic shifts trough pre-copernican worlds but also trough differing ways of imagining space travel, the origin of our universe or the history of astronomy.
Like a bunch of hibernating, noctambulous mammals that we are, we will retrace some of the sucesive ways to access the immensity of cosmic space.
EVERYBODY is invited to bring his/hers schlafsack, iso, comfy clothes(even pajamas!), favorite pets, your family, interplanetary toys & games, air-tight space crackers or any foods for a long night in outer space!
(please feel free to contribute to the program: firstname.lastname@example.org)
1) The whole actually starts with people conquering a place/spot to sit, stay or sleep during the night. Means fitting in everybody and keeping free routes of escape/going out to toilets or doors.
2) If everybody is comfortable and settled in, the screening or/and lecturing can commence with discussion breaks in btwn./ a sternchensuppe dinner is planned.
3) Sleeping concerts start later on during the night and are associated with the nocturnal state of the sleep over.
4) the last sleep-nauts will get a cozzzmo diploma in the morning!
