The Proceedings of the Participatory Exploration Summit are now available from CoLab.
On June 26th, 2007, NASA and the National Space Society hosted the Participatory Exploration Summit at the NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, California. The Summit explored creative opportunities for individuals, organizations, and communities to engage with NASA's space activities through the use of new and emerging technologies. Participants themselves engaged in and learned these new technologies as the Summit progressed. Micro-blogging of astronauts from the International Space Station, designing missions collaboratively in virtual worlds, and making the volumes of data NASA has more available to the public were just a few of the many suggestions that arose from the Summit that can support Participatory Exploration.
