# n-arch: the future fieldwork of Archaeology: 'Spacejunk'

<< The grand tour of the future (..) might take place off the Earth entirely, involving a tour of derelict satellites and abandoned spacecraft, those ruined cathedrals of the sky. >>

<< (..) these abandoned satellites and other spacecraft will likely be preserved in situ, still actively orbiting the planet or even circling a Jovian moon >>

<< In this vision of what Barclay and Brooks describe as “the future of museums beyond the atmosphere,” tomorrow's grand tourists will come face-to-hull with ancient spacecraft, the way economically privileged Europeans once visited Notre Dame or the Colosseum. >>
