Matt Weinzierl, Professor of economics at the Harvard Business School joins us to talk the economics of space, why economics is philosophy, and NASA’s role in building the space economy.
Dr. Pekka Janhunen, of the Finnish Meteorological Institute, discusses his large-scale habitation concepts in the orbit of the dwarf planet, Ceres.
Nick Nielsen talks about the ethical and philosophical aspects of humanities expansion into space. We covered topics ranging from the ethical considerations of the presence of life in the universe, to how independent space-fairing societies would form with unique philosophies, to what space law and a ‘space bill of rights’ might look like.
Movie making in the new area of easy access to space and artificial gravity space stations and the first to market strategy, modular architecture, and the keys to opening up the space economy.
Gary, Joe, and Jeromy discuss key components of recycling space junk: CisLunar Industries debris recycling and metal refining technology, and orbital maneuvers using Rogue Space robotic drones called “Orbots”. They discuss the enabling impact of artificial gravity in LEO for their operations.
Professor of Economics Akhil Rao discusses with our hosts the connection between environmental protection and space exploration, the carbon impacts of space travel, and the undeveloped country of cis-lunar space.
Grant Anderson (Paragon Space Development Corporation) and Bruce Pittman (Sky Corp Inc) discuss the importance of having a gravity vector in space, life support, assembling space craft on orbit, and beyond.
Frank White discusses the “Overview Effect”, and why he feels large numbers of people should experience it. We also discuss the “solar ecosystem” and why moving into space isn’t abandoning the Earth.
Dr. Tom Spilker and Architect Tim Alatorre join us in this week’s episode to talk about why we build space stations, designing space stations, artificial gravity, making stations profitable, and engineering the future of space.
Dr. Angie Bukley, and OAC advisor Jeff Greason join us in this week’s episode. Both have long careers in space and share their insights on artificial gravity and more.
