Art and science magazine Plasma launches its fifth issue this month. The magazine, which focuses primarily on space exploration and its impact on the art world has gained critical acclaim thanks to its aesthetic takes on AI, bionics and technology in art.
At PLASMA we always wonder: if extraterrestrials ever paid us a visit, what would we want to show them? We'd like to make a good impression, right?
PLASMA 6 turns its gaze towards the pale blue dot. This issue's Earth-centric focus is highlighted by articles featuring everything from environmental issues to artistic perspectives, and ultimately sheds a new light on the meaning of our space endeavors. To understand the motivations better, we talked to the engineers behind the latest SpaceX Dragon missions and inspiring women in STEM.
Additionally, we explore the alternative realities of Rick & Morty, Sailor Moon and jump into the physics of time travel. Our latest issue also includes a huge centerfold poster of SPACE PLANTS.
