Most of us dream about space exploration - but haven't yet touched those stars ourselves. Can earth science and other open data connect us physically and personally to the exploration of the universe? Can we adorn and decorate our lives with what we've learned from space?
Tonight we'll look at a variety of real space data and the international, cross-disciplinary collaborations that can discover its secrets. Experience that certain thrill when you know you're connected to something extraordinary like a space station flying overhead.
LateLab is a collaboration between the Edinburgh International Science Festival, New Media Scotland and the University of Edinburgh's School of Informatics.
