Episode 1: ARCHIVES OF THE FUTURE
The capsule opens by introducing the idea that archives can foretell the future - as a speculative past, through science and fiction, under constantly changing environmental factors. Nina gives examples critically exploring: how to accurately represent a species of an area, of a specific time?

Episode 2: ARCHIVE IN A TOOTH
How to archive with material that don't preserve well? We dive into the shark teeth, one of the most commonly found fossils that could lead to a wider understanding of Earth and time.

Episode 3: ARCHIVES THAT LIVE
This episode shifts the focus to the depths we can learn from living things, and the magical thinking in science evidenced by electric fish and the strange interactions between submarines and shrimps.

Episode 4: ARCHIVES IN OUTER SPACE
The capsule ends a (big) step further: on Titan, Saturn's largest moon. If we can think of the Earth as one big archive, what about other globes in outer space?
