Phone Home Inc. - Film shoot (Observing Space)
Phone Home Inc. is an installation that allows the viewer to experience the time delay that occurs during interplanetary communication. The speed of communication is limited by the speed of light, which means that we have to wait a few seconds for a message from the Moon to arrive and between 5-10 minutes for one from Mars. Time delay in communication will be a significant factor in space colonization. This effect might not seem obvious, but will have a great influence in how social relationships might evolve in space.
Organized by the Observing Space team.
