Peter and Dan launch into a comprehensive update on space exploration. As governments and corporations alike pursue reusable spacecraft, extra-planetary manufacturing tools and cheaper launch systems, this discussion focuses on the remarkable initiatives of private companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin, now eclipsing government capabilities in speed and scale.
In this episode:
- Peter examines the primary reasons for which today’s space companies focus on reusable launch systems and landing large payloads on the Moon.
- Dan and Peter discuss how the human body reacts to long-term, zero-gravity environments, as well as the precautions needed when living on the Moon or in extra-planetary colonies.
- Peter describes three convergences that, while yet to materialize, will open trillion-dollar assets in space over the next few decades.
