6th form London Design trip to the VandA and Design Museum. Friday December 13th.
MOVING TO MARS at The Design Museum
Getting humans to Mars is becoming one of the great challenges of our time. From the spaceships to be used for the 8-month journey to the habitats that people will live in, and from terraforming the landscape to the development of a new society, every detail in this collective endeavour must be designed.
Step into a full-scale Mars home, immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of the landscape and learn how rethinking daily life for a zero-waste, clean energy-powered civilisation might help future generations on Earth.
Children born today are the first who might witness a human mission to Mars in their lifetime. It’s one of humanity's great challenges and everything will need to be designed – but should we even be going?
The exhibition features immersive environments, about 200 objects including contributions from NASA, the European Space Agency and SpaceX; NASA's 3D-Printed Mars Habitat Challenge winners, AI SpaceFactory; robotic builders by Foster & Partners; the first sustainable urban design for Mars, Mars City Design; the first spacesuit designed for the Mars surface; Christopher Raeburn's new fashion collection inspired by the red planet and much more.

‘24/7- A wake up call from our non-stop world’ at Somerset House. https://www.somersethouse.org.uk/whats-on/247
An essential exhibition for today, exploring the non-stop nature of modern life. Many of us feel we’re working more intensively, juggling too many things, blurring our public and private lives, pushing the limits of our natural rhythms of sleep and waking.24/7 takes visitors on a multi-sensory journey from the cold light of the moon to the fading warmth of sunset through five themed zones and contains over 50 multi-disciplinary works that will provoke and entertain.
