Creating a Colony on Mars - The Future of the Space Industry
Time: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: DaVinci Institute, 511 E. South Boulder Road, Louisville, CO 80027
What would it be like to raise a family on another planet? When will shipping companies start including "Earth" in the address field of their packages? Who will hit the first 1000-yard golf drive on Mars? Will the first trillionaire make the bulk of her fortune on Earth or elsewhere in the solar system?
Explore these and other future-shaping questions with Brian Enke, a Senior Space Research Analyst at the Southwest Research Institute. Brian has given several space-related DaVinci talks, and now he returns with the latest exciting news on space settlement.
At least four companies or non-profits have developed feasible (and vastly different) business models for sending people to live on other worlds within the next 10-20 years. We will discuss these entities and their plans for opening up the next frontiers for human development. We will also speculate about what these plans mean for the rest of us - and our children. Economics, politics, environmentalism, psychology, energy, medicine, sociology, technology... all subjects and concerns are on the table..
