Archival works a glimpse of the past

Here at MOSE curators have working to catalogue the latest delivery of 21st century archival work from the SOL system. Despite some damage due to poor storage this reveals how some artists future-scoped the century Рin this case the introduction of new technology to fundamentally edit and change DNA. From  genetic tourism Р2045 to  Bio engineered young blood 2055 to fishing dogs with gills Р2075.

2045 Genetic tourism facilities colonise redundant office space

Youngblood

2055 Scientist crack code for “young blood”. Huge sales expected. Lifeblood Inc stocks rise 200%

fishing dog

2070 first ‘fishing’ dog with gills as flood waters rise and land engulfed.

codeforward

The Void continues to provide interesting items as the Balinger Freight Company swings by and robotically picks up tons of items for inspection. codeforward:codebackward is actually reconstituted from pieces that had fallen apart in the pickup process (an occupational hazard in deep space retrieval). MOSE’s experts have examined the pieces that remain, and have concluded provisionally that these ceramic pieces were perhaps once trialled as data storage for longevity and encased in lead for protection. Like many other trials of these types of devices their time came and went – then – destined for the Void.

Out from the Void

rustweb

Meanwhile space exploration continues into new galaxies . New as this is one of the few galaxies to be found in a void that is an almost empty space. Galaxy 7 (0f 17) in the Great Void has been found to have stars with exoplanets of different sizes. One, with a relatively weak gravity, turned out to be covered in what could be described as a vast waste dump of different objects. Robotic grabbers picked up a selection. MOSE is lucky to have been sent one of these mystery objects for its collection. We are not sure whether the rust existed before it was packed up for transit or whether some oxygen and damp has seeped into the package since.

Posthuman technology

closehear

Posthuman technology…one of the most important aids to space exploration and one of the fastest growing procedures of choice during the 3030s. Close up (magnified 100 times) of the hearing implants that enabled people to hear 10 times more clearly. Many found the cacophony of sound too much to bear but had to wait ten years before the implant dissolved away.

Inter-museum loan – delivery

The Museum of Space Exploration has delivered a collection of artefacts from the planet Nujema to The Museum of Everything on permanent loan*. This will ensure that the artefacts, and MOSE’s mission, will have the largest possible audience in the wide area that is covered by the Itinerant Museum of Everything.

*Delivered by our sponsor the Balinger Freight CorporationLogistics Protection

 

Bequest from Balinger Freight Corporation

The Collection

The Collection

Thanks to the Balinger Freight Corporation who have given MOSE the latest addition to its collections – a four drawer wooden chest containing pieces of high specification, ceramic matrix composites. Used in some of the very first warp drives they could withstand temperature ranges from between minus 250 degrees C to 3000 degrees C. One of the founders of the Corporation had spent years amassing the objects and similar retro spaceship parts. These he would keep in chests and drawers dating from early 1900s and spend time ensuring that the drawers worked perfectly, that the polish remained smooth, and that he could find a space for storing the redundant small pieces of precision engineering that the Corporation would bring back from their journeys to distant galaxies.

EXO 159 – Robot testing

Biofauna closeBiofaunaOur newly donated robot R. Molto has been tested for its humanoid critical functions. R Molto is a humaniform type but there seems to be some damage and extensive metal degradation. It was shown this (fully sealed) suspected piece of bio-fauna from EXO159. Its comments were: “An object covered with security film first used in 3326. It has a native tongue that resists codification common to verbal communication and bridges phenomenal and conceptual dimensions”.
