THE WORLD IS IN YOU – LEAVING THIS WORLD
(Please note, the talk is in Danish)
Our bodies are connected to earth’s gravity, climate and atmosphere. A connection that is impossible to leave behind.
Research explores the physical boundaries and possibilities of the human body at a time when the Earth is no longer the only planetary habitat for our species. For example, what happens to the body if we want to settle on Mars? Are humans at all able to adapt to living anywhere other than on earth? What happens to the body if we take it out of its planetary context? And what new insights does it give us in the interplay between body and planet?
In this talk, astronomer Michael Lindholm and curator Jacob Lillemose meets for a conversation about the body in space
Michael Lindholm is an astronomer and has spent the last eight years teaching astronomy and astrophysics, at home and abroad
Jacob Lillemose has a Ph.D. in art history and is a curator at Medical Museion.
The World is in You – conversations about the connected body.
This conversation is part of a series that delves into four research areas – chronobiology, epigenetics, microbiome research and astrobiology – to examine the questions they raise about our connection to the planet, to our environment and each other. Like the questions, the conversations are also interdisciplinary and cross research, history, philosophy and art.
The conversation series is part of the project ‘The World is in You’.
