1. PENELOPE :  Permanent Extended Network for Environmental Listening to Orbiting Phenomena of Earth.

Proposal for the the creation of 5 ground stations for local and celestial observations with autonomous space agencies in 5 countries of the world in order to follow the flights of newly launched satelites, like the Ulises or the Mur.sat, and other celestial bodies.

The project aims to create a network of transnational collectives that are developing artistic and hacker space programs as well as reinforcing the role of each local group in relation to the public as well as existing or developing national or international space programs.

Each ground station will carry out listening, recording and documentary duties , astronomical data collection  and observation of local biopolitical conditions as well as organising workshops, conferences and experiments with the general public. These activities of satellite observation will raise public consciousness of space programs, understanding satellites as well as creating new narratives, stories and imagination about space.
