A massive NASA space blanket will be created for Burning Man

A Russian businessman hopes to reorder NASA's space sheets for an exhibition at the Burning Man festival in Nevada. When finished it will be 300 feet x 300 feet in size and will be made of around 3,000 individual pieces and will be maintained along with 25 miles of reinforced tape

A Russian businessman hopes to redesign NASA's space blankets to create a shaded area for festival attendees to relax during the Burning Man festival in Nevada.

Alexander Shtanuk has started a crowdfunding campaign to finance his project, which aims to transform the discarded reflective material into a huge screen of 300 feet x 300 feet (100 meters x 100 meters).

When finished, the space blanket will be the size of a football field and will be used to create shade and protect against wind gusts during the music festival.

The businessman Shtanuk expects to generate £ 13,335 ($ 17,500) to bring the big blanket to Burning Man, which runs from August 26 to September 4, 2018.

The material is good for temperature regulation, since it reflects about 97 percent of all the heat. It will be used to create shade and as a cool resting area in the desert.

The reflective blankets were originally started in the 1960s to provide insulation to NASA space missions and measure about seven feet by five feet (2.1 meters by 1.6 meters).

They are made of BoPET polyester, a stretched version of the commonly used polyester known as PET, and are capable of reflecting 97 percent of all the radiated heat.

These days, space blankets They are given to the athletes after marathons and other exhaustive exercises to help their bodies to quickly recover the normal temperature after strenuous activity.

However, these blankets are often single-use and are discarded after the event.

Shtanuk hopes that the shiny material is a new life and reuses them for his unusual artistic installation in the Nevada desert.

The money financed by the crowd will be used to finance the final assembly, storage and transport of the big screen, he said.

The final sheet will be composed of around 3,000 separate and smaller sheets.

Shtanuk says it will take 25 miles (40 km) of reinforced tape to keep them together.

He hopes that the creation has a multitude of uses in the festival.

The art installation will be able to wave in the desert wind, creating a very welcome shade over a large part of the desert for visitors.

In conditions of stillness and calm, Shtanuk says that the blanket can be placed on the floor to serve as a seating area.

The large leaf would be left to fly in the desert wind, creating a welcome shade over a large section of the desert for visitors. In quiet and calm conditions, it can be placed on the ground to act as a resting area

"The blanket will constantly change its silhouette by the power of the wind, taking different surrealistic forms: waves, mountains or some giant fantastic sculptures," proclaims the fundraising page for the project.

"During the warm daytime room under the blanket it will be used as a comfortable and refreshing resting area, where anyone can relax, relax, take a nap or dance."

When temperatures drop in the afternoon, the sheet will become more of an interactive screen than a functional umbrella, Shtanuk said.

How to get tickets to the Burning Man festival

Pay for the nose

In April, $ 1,200 tickets will be available for burners that are identical to the $ 425 ticket.

Secure ticket exchange program

The Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP) is an online system that facilitates the secure resale of tickets of nominal value and passes of vehicles that have been purchased directly from Burning Man.

According to the Burning Man website, it is designed to provide a secure and hassle-free way to buy and sell tickets and avoid scammers, fakes and resellers.

The sale of OMG

The sale of OMG is essentially a sale of last-chance tickets and is also by order of arrival and requires registration. It includes the sale of 2,000 tickets at $ 425 each, and 1,250 passes of available vehicles at $ 80 each, plus the applicable rates.

The Low Income Tickets Program

Some 4,000 tickets at $ 190 each are available through the Low Income Tickets Program and are reserved for those who are interested and can demonstrate a real financial need. These tickets are not transferable.

Buy from a friend or stranger

Burner groups on social networks, such as the "Burning Man Ticket Begging" group on Facebook, are the means by which people can exchange tickets. Craigslist has notices of ticket sales, although there is a danger of falling into a scam.

Go to a different burn

There are 70 Burning Man festivals throughout the year, including Nowhere in Spain, AfrikaBurn in South Africa, Midburn and Flipside in Israel in Austin.

Volunteer to help build work on a project

Burning Man delivers 26,000 tickets with face value to people who work at facilities or volunteer to help build the festival's infrastructure. The disadvantage is that the sale of this has happened, but a job can secure a ticket.

Mr. Shtanuk imagines the participants dressed in suits with electroluminescent wire, also known as el-wire, and created by coating the copper wire with a phosphor that shines in the dark. Next, they would crawl under the blanket, creating an oceanic bioluminescent plankton effect or moving equalizer waves.
