Nxplorers Editorial

Over the last few months eight people went beyond the boundaries of our planet as the space tourism launched itself into reality. Once again, humanity has come together to celebrate space travel, but this time it feels a little closer to home.

Through generations of collaboration and innovation, we have once again sparked our shared human desire to exceed the limitations of what we know and what we see around us.

It’s not just the modern day space race we’re watching unfold, we continue to celebrate the monumental international collaboration that is the International Space Station - where teams are currently growing plants in space, reimagining the environments in which we can grow food.

And we’re proud to say that through the NXplorers programme our participants are doing that every day. From Australia to Trinidad, we all take great inspiration from the pioneers we see going beyond their boundaries, and we hope that our current generation of NXplorers will soon be in a position to inspire the next to go beyond their boundaries.

N Xplorers September Case Study 19x9

REIMAGINING MAGNETIC FORCES AS A SUSTAINABLE ECOSYSTEM

NXplorers students in Qatar Science & Technology School for Boys, in Doha, reimagined magnetic forces to develop a solution that reduced the acidity of native soil. Their project increases the arability of the land allowing crops to be grown so Qatar could become more self-sufficient as an economy. The reduction in the country’s reliance upon imports will directly contribute towards a more prosperous economy.
