COSS Catalyst

COSS CATALYST is an exciting alternative format to foster interdisciplinary conversations around Outer Space.

Each term we invite three guest contributors to present work on a theme related to outer space. Themes might include for example ‘the body’, ‘environment’, ‘future’, isolation, etc.  The guests range from scholars to professionals to enthusiasts. Each will be invited to contribute work that takes around 10 minutes to engage with. This could be a video talk, a photo essay, a blog or any other format. These will be hosted and archived on the COSS website. The three contributors will be invited to answer questions from each other and from the public on the last Wednesday of each month, for one hour from 7pm.
