How I Hacked My Way Into Space is a show about the formation of the Unlimited Space Agency, about technology and art coming together, the power of stories to create new realities and the thin lines between obsession and madness. It’s about the glorious possibilities for scientists and artists to work together and how even the smallest person can make a difference and achieve their seemingly impossible dreams.
And yes we really did build a towable version of UNSA Headquarters, The Space Shed, to tour the show at festivals across the UK.
Unlimited’s artistic director Jon Spooner has always wanted to go to space.
“Ever since I was 7 years old and watched NASA launch its first Space Shuttle mission and I saw how beautiful the Earth looked from all the way above it, up there looking down… since then, it has been my dream to go there too.”
How I Hacked My Way Into Space tells the
frankly, bizarre inspirational story of a 43 year old man’s midlife crisis creative adventure to hack his way into space from his garden shed in England, via the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, to Johnson Space Centre in Houston Texas and a rocket launch at Cape Canaveral in Florida.
