FOR THE AIR. FOR THE CLIMATE.
For the first time in human history, humans fly free into the air. On the 25th of January 2020, 'Aerocene Pacha' a fuel-free hot air balloon lifted a person into the sky, landing safely back on earth using only sun and air we all breathe, setting six unprecedented world records. We fly without fossil fuels, batteries, lithium, solar panels, helium, hydrogen and carbon emissions. This marks the most sustainable human flight in the history of aviation, being certified by the FAI (Fédération Aéronautique Internationale).
Altitude: 272.1 mt
Distance: 1.7 km
Duration: 1 h 21 min*
*Being certified by the FAI (Fédération Aéronautique Internationale)
*A safe & certified vehicle
*For the female and general categories
Aerocene is an worldwide interdisciplinary community that seeks to devise new modes of sensitivity, reactivating a common imaginary towards an ethical collaboration with the environment and the atmosphere, free from borders, free from fossil fuels, towards a new epoch.
MUSEO AERO SOLAR
collect, care, reuse and fly with a plastic bag
Aerocene emerged through Museo Aero Solar in 2007, a community practice forming through cooperation and the simple acts of reusing plastic bags. A flying museum, an aerosolar sculpture, and a container for and of collaborative endeavours, Museo Aero Solar continues to float around the Planet. Where will it land next?

FLIGHTS & EXPERIMENTS
Aerocene community proposed to develop some specific actions in Ansenuza. The focus was the study and observation of birds and strengthening Ansenuza environment as a continental sanctuary for migration birds.

Today Aerocene flew during the Austral Total Solar Eclipse of 2019! Our balloons were inflated in the afternoon, and at 17.41hs, the sun almost on the horizon, just before sunset, hid completely behind the moon for 2 minutes.
Want to be part of an atmospheric sensing leap this Saturday, challenging the aerial borders of the fossil fuel regime on drifting elemental journeys? We invite you to join us in releasing to the sky De-NOx, an aerosolar sculpture sent aloft as the call sign for the renewaling of our participation in the other-worldly community of our many-voiced environments.
