Their excellent books examine, respectively, plausible scenarios for the next few decades of spaceflight, and why we must (yes, MUST) expand into outer space.

Cometan will discuss Astronism, a belief system centered on…


The last hour of the Terasem Space Day Colloquium on July 20 will start with short presentations by Natasha Vita-More and Rachel Lyons, and continue with a discussion between the two speakers.

Cometan, the founder of Astronism, will speak at the Terasem Space Day Colloquium on July 20.

David Roman says:
