Technology Entertainment and Design (TED)

 

This week is the second TEDxNASA conference at the NASA/Langley Research Center (LaRC).  They have been leading the agency in creating these outstanding and innovative conferences to bring together various perspectives.  I would definitely encourage anyone that is familiar with TED events to take a look at the videos from last year’s TedxNASA Space to Create. You will definitely enjoy the talks.  Additionally on November 20th, NASA/LaRC and NASA/Johnson Space Center will be hosting events in support of TEDxYouthDay.  Held on Universal Children’s Day – “TEDx organizers across the globe will host events for (and by) young people. These events will vary widely in size, format and theme, but they will share a common vision: inspiring curiosity, igniting new ideas, empowering young leaders.”

 

So as I thought about bringing together the worlds of technology, entertainment and design I am reminded of an experiment that we are trying at JSC.  Two months ago we asked Pat Rawlings to help bring together the world of technology and entertainment in looking at a possible future for the Johnson Space Center.   He combined his insights on technology trends with a graphic novel format to describe what the future might look like at the 100th anniversary of the lunar landing. In his depiction of the future he introduces the Butterfly Effect Environmental Software (B.E.E.S) that used massive amounts of data to better predict the weather and other events.  If you are curious about what this might look like I would recommend that you look at the external posting of the JSC 2069 story.   

 

When I reflected on the TED activities, what struck me more than our story about the possibilities was the reality that was recently announced by NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).  They introduced a new facility with a “state-of-the-art supercomputer to give NOAA a powerful new tool in climate and weather modeling”.  It is reminiscent of Jules Verne and submarines or da Vinci and airplanes.   When you combine technology and the arts (left and right sides of the brain) new realities are possible.  Of course the JSC 2069 story did not result in NOAA’s announcement, but like Jules Verne it opens up the possibilities for future applications of a nascent technology/capability. 

 

Therefore, I applaud the team at Langley for pushing to bring together the different world views from technology, entertainment and design.  I can’t wait to see the possibilities that will emerge from the discussions.

 

Sharing the Vision,

  1. Howdy….Hello…..One day a new type of spacecraft will be built. It will use Newtons’ apple and Einsteins’ mass. It will be a measuring device to measure the gravity of different objects in space. The ‘apple’ will be attracted to the object, from the Earth. It will travel very fast. It is pro gravity, not anti.

  2. This is an intresting post, although it was created in oct 2011, I gota admit Langley did a fantastic job with this project.

  3. One day a new type of spacecraft will be built. It will use Newtons’ apple and Einsteins’ mass. It will be a measuring device to measure the gravity of different objects in space. I wish it to be true

  4. The 2069 post has nice comics but the idea that stands behind the B.E.E.S technology, as far as I see it, is beyond grasp and to my beliefs would become possible much, much later.

  5. I was at TedxNASA Space to Create back in 2009, I really had a fantastic time but unfortunatly I missed the TEDxYouthDay event 🙁

  6. Waw !!! It was created in oct 2010, Its really very intresting post. Thanks to Gonzalez for this post. Yah! I really enjoyed !! and very excited for the next. Like to watch movies? DISH Network Promotions bring you all. With the recent DISH Network deals and unique offers and Delivering more than promised.

  34. TEDxNASA events provide an opportunity to leverage the strengths of a TED-inspired format and create a unique opportunity for the exchange of game‐changing ideas. There have been several TEDxNASA conferences, events designed specifically for ideas relevant to NASA missions and goals.

  35. TED has always been a phenominal website. I feel like I dont even need televsion any more. There really is just a wealth of inspirational, educational, and interesting speeches and people on there. If you want to see some particulary good TED talks, I have some links in my directory . Have a good one!

  37. As I’ve attended TED events before, I know that they can be great talks and very informative. Thanks for the links to last years videos. Although I missed this years events, I shall be attending next year, as they are a must-see for any tech enthusiast.

  38. Interesting article… The NOAA collaboration sounds wonderful. Any improvement of our current methods of weather modeling would be awesome. 2011 was a horrible year for damage caused by extreme weather. We still need lots of improvements in our weather warning systems.

  39. Thanks for sharing superb information. Your site is so cool. I’m impressed by the details that you’ve on this website. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for extra articles.

  40. I’m a graduate student in neuroscience (fancy ey?), and because of that I think about and discuss the brain and the mind a lot, and the beauty of the complex and abstract system that is the mind/brain is hard to bring across to laypeople. This post is awesome and obviously one of brilliant job by NASA.

    Thanks-

  41. I just love TED and it’s video’s. Thanks for sharing this vision!

    Yours, Steve

  42. That was really a very well written post. NASA is really doing quite impressive research in space these days. Well, I think they should put some efforts in searching for water in the universe other than earth. If they succeed in doing this then it will be a very great achievement for them and also for us.

  43. TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, formed to disseminate “ideas worth spreading”We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.so as i thought about bringing to gether the words technology.

  44. This article is well written and very informative. I really like this site because it offers loads of information to its followers.

  45. Hey there nice work..i love reading and sharing new & quality info …. i loved the post and i will share & tweet about the work on your site for sure.

  46. Great Post You share valuable! I would like to thank you for sharing your thoughts and time into the stuff you post!! Thumbs up. que es el amor

  47. Nasa is really doing very nice job nowadays, especially the Tedx. I heard a news of finding water in some other planet. Is it true? If this is true then the water scarcity problem can be minimized and there will be no need of preserving and .

  48. I like the Idea of NASA for providing as blog to read everyday.. It really helps to all the subscriber and news reader.

  49. One thing I like coming to this forum is that there is something that you can learn each time or some tip that will help you to make your work easier and simpler.

  50. For one of the most sophisticated blogs I’ve encountered in some time! It’s just amazing how you can remove something just because of how beautiful it is visually.

  51. I am expecting to see some changes in the way the appliance parts will be designed. I am perfectly aware of stand by power and and I hope we’ll be able to make the difference in cutting electricity consumption. Big and small appliances need redesigning just for this purpose.

  52. I’m so happy for being here on NASA blog to comment and to say your posts always are very powerful. I hope in one day to join NASA group work

  53. After joining a local TEDx, I can say I have never learned more in a one day session about Technology and how it relates to our everyday lives. I only wish I could find a away to the original TED!

  59. Seems to me a very useful information. So glad to be able to find this! However I am quite sure that apart from this information, you would’ve no idea what a actually is. Am I right?

  60. a few wildly exceed expectations – these few create a lot of wealth. If none of your research and development projects fail, you may not be trying hard enough

  61. Inspiring post! seems technology and design are stepping into a new era.

    we at sizzlemedia are also quite inspired by the latest algorithm change of Google. web designing was never so challenging. we just love every bit of it.

    keep it up NASA! technology is a never-ending journey.

    my best.

  101. When I reflected on the TED activities, what struck me more than our story about the possibilities was the reality that was recently announced by NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). They introduced a new facility with a “state-of-the-art supercomputer to give NOAA a powerful new tool in climate and weather modeling”.
