At an advanced stage of the project it will be useful to arrange the growing "beam me up" volume in separate chapters, the so-called guided tours. Guest curators will take on the task of compiling a variety of articles categorized by subjective and/or thematic factors. The tours will facilitate an overview of "beam me up" for visitors.
