RLE Professor Karl Berggren and his research group create artifact for television satellite

Eventually adding to the “graveyard in the sky,” new project by MIT Artist in Residence Trevor Paglen titled “The Last Pictures” will launch a television satellite into Earth’s orbit containing an ultra-archival disc of images to be broadcast for the next fifteen years. Scientists in RLE’s Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group, lead by RLE Professor Karl Berggren created the archival disc for the project.
