A Sign in Space is an interdisciplinary project led by media artist Daniela de Paulis, in collaboration with the SETI Institute, the European Space Agency, and other international partners. The project aims to simulate the process of receiving, decoding, and interpreting a message from an extraterrestrial civilization. On May 24, 2023, the European Space Agency’s ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter transmitted an encoded message to Earth, which was received by three large radio telescopes. The public was invited to help decode and interpret the message through the A Sign in Space Discord server yeah.Read More A Sign in Space: Decoding a Simulated Extraterrestrial Message
Outer space, once the exclusive province of superpower nations during the Cold War, has evolved into an arena for a growing number of stakeholders. As accessibility to the ‘final frontier’ increases, the ‘space economy’ has emerged as a multidimensional ecosystem involving commercial enterprises, non-profit institutions, and intergovernmental organizations (IGOs). This article reviews the role and relevance of IGOs in the expanding space economy.Read More Intergovernmental Organizations and Their Impact on the Space Economy

Data hints at exoplanet possessing possible liquid ocean surface Carbon-bearing molecules have been discovered in the atmosphere of the habitable zone exoplanet K2-18 b by an international team of astronomers using data from the NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. These results are consistent with an exoplanet that may contain ocean-covered surface underneath a hydrogen-rich atmosphere. This discovery provides a fascinating glimpse into a planet unlike anything else in our Solar System, and raises interesting prospects about potentially habitable worlds elsewhere in the Universe.Read More Press Release: Webb Discovers Methane, Carbon Dioxide in Atmosphere of K2-18 b (STSI 2023)
