Multi-Planetary Worlds: Mobilities of the Space Age

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapterpeer-review


Our futures steadily gather momentum in outer space. As advances in techno-science propel a range of objects and ideas, data and images and affects and capital beyond the globe, their proliferation progressively entangles human societies with their planetary outside. The mobilities of the space age accelerate and magnify the prospective reach of our futures in the making. Opening up opportunities for multi-planetary projections of the species, they steadily protract the horizon of our common world. This chapter captures an array of mobilities enlivening our multi-planetary arena, exploring the ways in which their material and social effects condition the unfolding of our shared futures on and off the Earth.
