Humanity is moving into space, and our businesses are coming with us. In recent years we have seen the beginnings of a new wave of human activity in space, from new commercial ventures, to exploration and even space tourism. But what does the future of our species in space look like? And will we recreate our problems and carry our political dysfunction with us into the final frontier?
Join us for the latest episode of Earthlings Podcast as we ask these and more questions about our collective journey. We will look at current plans and challenges to building a commercial space station and explore the potentially life-changing experience of visiting space as a tourist. Finally, we will examine how terrestrial politics are being translated into space, and look at thorny issues of who will control and exploit resources on the moon and other celestial bodies.
