Aerocene community

Aerocene Foundation
Aerocene emerged with Museo Aero Solar in 2007, a collectively produced aerosolar sculpture made with reused plastic bags. The Aerocene Explorer was collaboratively invented in 2015, to enable anybody to sense the air in a new way. Together with the Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences department at MIT, the Aerocene community developed the Float Predictor, a global forecasting system that utilises meteorological data to predict flight paths of aerosolar sculptures, allowing endless virtual journeys around the globe without the use of fossil fuels. In November 2015, Aerocene community achieved the world’s first fully certified manned solar balloon launch in White Sands, Mexico. In the same year, the first Aerocene sculpture was set free in the sky, lifted by the sun and carried by winds towards a new border-less infrastructure of the air.

As an ever growing research and experimental practice, Aerocene continues to be open-source and collaborative. It consists of a dedicated and diverse global community of activists and practitioners who collaborate to increase accessibility for environmental awareness and atmospheric sensing experiments.
