 SPAC3 The Project – what is it? how it works?

Paolo Nespoli, astronaut of ESA European Space Agency, will rocket into space from Baiknour Cosmodrome, in Kazakhstan, today July 28th, starting the VITA mission (Vitality, Innovation, Technology and Ability), the third long-term mission of ASI Italian Space Agency.

Closely related to the mission,  will be launched  SPAC3, an application developed by ESA together with RAM radioartemobile, platform for contemporary art, in cooperation with ASI  and Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto. The public release of the application on Google Play Store and Apple Store will correspond with the take-off of Paolo Nespoli for the International Space Station.

The aim of the application is a creation of a big social artwork within the symbol of the “Third Paradise” by the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto, participating with a personal creative contribution.

The SPAC3 application asks you to choose in which of six areas you wish to have your voice and share your message on social networks (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram). These areas include all 17 goals adopted by the UN for their 2030 agenda, to resolve the most relevant global issues: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, Partnership

Following the proposed themes, the users have the possibility to combine the space photos by the astronaut Paolo Nespoli with the Earth images by the user within the symbol of the “Third Paradise” .

The images generated with this combination, once shared will become part of a large, interactive mosaic on the website www.spac3.space. The SPAC3 ever changing web platform will be populated by a flow of 1000 most recent images generated by the users via this app.
