Abstract

At a time when the viability of planet Earth as a suitable home for the human species is in doubt, outer space is big business. This paper examines the politics of space migration and its effects in perpetuating myths of human exceptionalism. How can we think differently about the ontological determinants that govern our relationship to the planet that we think of as home?
