The first annual InterPlanetary Festival seeks to change the world one planet at a time. But how? By bringing Complexity science — its tools, resources, frameworks — to the masses, to train future planetologists, with the hope that every earthling can more readily understand whole, living planets. With planetary understanding, we’re more capable of succeeding in our exploration (and colonization) of moons and other planets. And with a complete, complex, understanding of living systems, we might find solutions to earth’s most troubling problems, as we overcome all of the challenges to establishing an InterPlanetary civilization.

The InterPlanetary Festival will draw space enthusiasts from around the world for a two-day celebration of human ingenuity. The festival will transform the Railyard District in downtown Santa Fe with an expo showcasing innovation and technology for humanity’s future in space. Concurrent with the expo, participants can enjoy open-air concerts, maker spaces, lectures and panel discussions, a Sci-Fi film showcase, curated art walks, art talks, and immersive installations, cosplay and gaming centered around InterPlanetary topics and citizen science.

Additional information about the scope of the InterPlanetary Project can be found here.
