As 2019 draws to a close and we are surrounded by friends and family, it is also a time for meaningful reflection and something to do whilst lounging on the proverbial family sofa.

This article is part of a series of articles on design thinking and thought leaders that transform into what we atCLC Advisorscall “i.e.,” the “idea economy.” Where ideas become and transform into widgets for those who choose to dare mighty things to build something bigger than themselves.We are the explorers of the universe.
I first met Mausonaut and his human person Holger Voss at the rocket launch of the Sentinel-2B satellite at the European Space Agency’s Operations Center. Recently, I flew to Berlin to attend a ESA SpaceTalk at the Siftung Planetarium Berlin to reunite with Mausonaut, Holger, and ESA’s Director General Jan Wörner. From there, our curiosity grew, adventures began, and so did the conversations with Mausonaut about imagination, exploration, and the curiosity it takes to make space (literally and figuratively) for creativity through play. We hope that you will enjoy reading this article with your families during this holiday season and wish you the happiest of holidays and best wishes for the new year and decade!
