Planet Earth is understood to be home for humans. Why, then, are those that consider themselves exemplary humans trying to leave it? This chapter for the handbook assesses literature that examines how particular spaces have historically been determined as home for humans, how the idea of home defines what we think of as human, and how this has produced the idea of who or what is less-than-human. On a journey from outer space to the kitchen table, via techniques of cartographic modeling, urban planning, and house design the chapter examines the possibility of posthuman space and the techniques of thought that can destabilize the relationship between species ontologies and the idea of home.
