PLASMA 6 _ LIFE IS AS YOU ARE

ANOTHER UNIVERSE RIGHT HERE / Earth issue

PLASMA 6

At PLASMA we always wonder: if extraterrestrials ever paid us a visit, what would we want to show them? We’d like to make a good impression, right?

PLASMA 6 turns its gaze towards the pale blue dot. This issue’s Earth-centric focus is highlighted by articles featuring everything from environmental issues to artistic perspectives, and ultimately sheds a new light on the meaning of our space endeavors. To understand the motivations better, we talked to the engineers behind the latest SpaceX Dragon missions and inspiring women in STEM.

Additionally, we explore the alternative realities of Rick & Morty, Sailor Moon and jump into the physics of time travel. Our latest issue also includes a huge centerfold poster of SPACE PLANTS.

PLASMA 6 cover A

To our astonishment, this year’s Earthly theme has been more on point than ever before. Issues spanning the climate crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, and racial inequity has allowed us to reflect with more intensity. Who are we as individuals? As a society? And what does this mean in the context of space exploration? The stars are gazing upon us as we take note of ourselves. We’ve made some great technological advances! But is that enough? PLASMA 6, much like Voyager 1 on Feb 14 1990, takes a look back at ourselves. We delve into the history of the past so that we can better appreciate and tackle the pressing questions of today, providing the reader with a more introspective and human issue. To understand the motivations better, we talked to the engineers behind the latest SpaceX Dragon missions, inspiring women in STEM, and a climate music hero from JPL.

As for the PLASMA team, we could not be happier

London-based Editor in Chief Judit Agui, specialized in science communication, and our Co-Editor & Head of Astrobiology Azul Pinochet Barros, PhD in Microbiology at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY), have both worked through the interviews and texts for the issue. The Creative Director and PLASMA Founder, Diana Wehmeier, developed the nerdy creative concept seen from cover to cover. She also carried out most of the interviews and provided the raw content for the magazine. The design and artistic language of the entire edition was created by the avant-garde visions of David Benski, Designer and Art Director in Berlin.

The PLASMA team is available for interviews, feel free to send a request.
