Your Personal Place in Space  

This is our 4th SpaceTime Coordinates project! If you missed our previous campaigns, come check SpaceTimeCoordinates.com.  

Commemorate a birth, wedding, first kiss or the moon landing! Every date in history has a different and unique planetary alignment. This is not a simple gizmo, but a precise depiction of the Solar System. Take a moment to meditate on the significance of life itself and our place in space

Philosophy

The STC project is about celebrating humanity, its achievements and ingenuity. It helps us relate to the Solar System itself and find our own place in the universe.

And to contextualize our human history and individual lives within the bigger picture of the universe.

The goal is to put things into perspective, in taking a moment to appreciate the human condition, nature, space, life. Take a breath. Contemplate.

Our time on Earth and within the universe might well be a tiny blip on the grand scale of time and space, but we should celebrate our humanity nonetheless.

No matter how ephemeral human life is, or for that matter, our personal lives. We have the obligation to always reach for the stars; keep on exploring, learning and creating.

We have the duty to survive and prosper.

 

Custom Made with Science & Lasers

This new collection of Mementos is laser cut and engraved, and this technique brings new materials we are very excited about: Acrylic and Wood!

Our designs are the most precise and accurate on the market because we rely on the same data that is used by NASA to predict eclipses or to compute spacecraft trajectories.

We can calculate the precise position of each planet on its orbital path, given any particular date in time. In fact, our Orrery is so accurate, it has been featured by OpenNASA!

The four dimensions (x, y, z, and t) are used to represent a particular location in time and space, also known as the 4th dimension, which might come handy if you ever stumble upon a wormhole or a tear in the fabric of the Universe.

Bamboo Mementos

Bamboo is a material with natural variation, such as lighter or darker wood grain. The Bamboo sheet is made of five layers of veneer (thin slice of wood). Bamboo is 100% renewable and sustainable.

 

Walnut Mementos

Walnut Premium Veneer has an MDF core with real wood veneer (thin slice of wood) on each side which is sanded smooth and finished with a clear coat. It has a high grade appearance, the grain direction will change the overall appearance depending on the light direction.

 
 

Acrylic Mementos

Acrylic is hard and stiff as plastics go. It is sensitive to stress concentrations sharing a certain fragility with glass. Avaliable in Fluoro Blue, Green Glass or Clear. Acrylic is non toxic and recyclable in some areas.
