ATLANTIS engages in a conversation about the latest ventures in InterPlanetary science. We talk about the technical specifics and the philosophical significance of our attempts to get to know the universe.
We take our name from the old lost city which was said to drown for its hubris, and then rose again to champion the humane use of science. We send these dispatches from our island in the universe, which might very well be sinking already. Like the ships that sailed to seek Atlantis, we venture into the universe wondering what humans can and will do with their inquiring minds and technological power.
We hope to give our readers more clarity about the science and technology involved in InterPlanetary missions, as well as the ideas (and ideologies?) motivating moonshot endeavors, presently and across time. Together, we’ll engage in a deeper conversation about the nature of the universe and the place of life within it.
