Throughout history, our understanding of space shaped different scientific disciplines: astronomy, cosmology, astrophysics, heliophysics, planetary science, astrobiology etc.
Over centuries, humanity developed a social-technological structure offering an insight into the depths of outer space. This constant development, the overcoming of old and new models at the same time reforms the technological and social condition of the Observer.
At the same time the role and alteration of the human condition behind these social-technological changes still remains overlooked. Annual Out of the Cradle topics will focus on “rethinking the human position” within the technological, social and natural processes, the position which enables understanding of the deep and close surroundings – Space and Earth.
