“Golem” exhibition of the Polish Space Agency, inspired by the works of Stanisław Lem (Polish science fiction writer, philosopher and futurologist), showing the Poland’s participation in space missions – at Poland Pavilion at EXPO 2020 in Dubai, UAE.
Golem is a sentient supercomputer – a cold, overbearing mind that without feelings and emotions is constantly processing and calculating. (…) Golem emits 12 futuristic animations, which refer to the participation of Poland in complex projects in the field of use and exploration of space.
The sounds you hear are musical compositions using original signals and sounds of extraterrestrial origin obtained through radio telescopes (pulsars, magnetosphere of planets, the sun, the northern lights), and archival recordings from space missions.
More detailed information has been decoded and is placed in the other part of the room. There you can find out about Polish participation in such projects as: NASA InSight – a lander sent to Mars, the international mission of the European Space Agency Athena or the ExoMars mission, which is a joint research mission of the European Space Agency and the Russian Space Agency Roskosmos.
The eponymous Golem is the hero of the book “Golem XIV” by the Polish science-fiction writer, philosopher and futurologist Stanisław Lem.
