You are cordially invited to a LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired – San Francisco event: “Will There Be Space for White Canes in Space?"
As part of the White Cane Awareness Day celebrations taking place around the world, LightHouse is hosting a discussion focusing on the future of travel with white canes.
We are proud to present the first public seminar by the four people who are blind who have been selected as the first blind researchers into the accessibility of 0 gravity. These "AstroAccess Ambassadors" will experience weightlessness and carry out lunar gravity, Martian gravity, and zero gravity observations and experiments investigating how the physical environment aboard space vessels should be modified so that all astronauts and explorers, regardless of disability on Earth, can live, work, and thrive in space. They will be speaking to us from Long Beach, California, from where they will be undertaking this groundbreaking flight forty-eight hours later. Mission: AstroAccess, a nonprofit and volunteer task force is providing support for this flight, to which LightHouse is a proud contributor. One of the goals of this research is to explore what mobility and orientation will look like for blind astronauts in the future. Will our traditional white canes be a thing of the past? Or, will they morph into something like a Star Wars light saber?
Come along and hear This handpicked team of blind ambassadors talk about their expectations of this first research flight, the access features that will be in place for the flight and their own White Cane wish-lists.
We’d love you to come with your own ideas of how cane travel might evolve in the future, and your questions for this panel.
What: Will There Be Space for White Canes in Space?
This interesting discussion will be taking place over Zoom.
We look forward to celebrating White Cane Awareness Day 2021 with you!
