THIS WEEK

014 – Playful Science with Jon Spooner

This week we chat to artist and Director of Human Space Flight Operations for the Unlimited Space Agency; Jon Spooner. After dabbling in various science and arts projects, Jon found a way to ‘hack himself into space’, backed by a mixture of scientists, astronauts, and members of the public. This has spiralled into some fantastic immersive projects, theatre shows, escape rooms and interactive missions, all led by the Unlimited Space Agency. Through his anecdotes we explore the importance of being playful with science and how this can lead to engagement, not only of children but also researchers!
