Millions of People Living and Working in Space

Posted by in categories: futurism, space travel

Blue Origin believes in a future where millions of people are living and working in space. Why? Because we believe that in order to preserve Earth, our home, for our grandchildren’s grandchildren, we must go to space to tap its unlimited resources and energy. If we can lower the cost of access to space with reusable launch vehicles, we can enable this dynamic future for humanity.

It’s a hopeful vision.

The Nature of Indefinite Life Extension in Context of Immanuel Kant’s Insights on Ethics and Duty

Posted by in categories: ethics, futurism, life extension, philosophy

Is working to pioneer the full scope of everything that exists a duty? I have been contemplating aspects of that question for some years now. Here I move in the direction of articulating its nature and making the case by drawing out correlations with life extension and Immanuel Kant’s thoughts in The Metaphysical Elements of Ethics.

“IV. What are the Ends which are also Duties? They are: A. Our own perfection, B. Happiness of others.”

His notion of “categorical imperative” is that of a universally applicable, non-contradictory, absolute necessity which everyone can use pure practical reason to understand without it needing to be experienced or taught to them.

He says that “ethics may also be defined as the system of the ends of the pure practical reason.”

SoundBender levitates objects

Posted by in category: futurism

Levitation is often thought of as the realm of magicians or The Jetsons, but it is technically possible. That said, the tech seems to be moving pretty slowly. Now, researchers at the University of Sussex have developed SoundBender, a technology that bends sound waves around obstacles to acoustically levitate objects above them.

Shocking stories about monitoring Yellowstone National Park

Posted by in category: futurism

Yellowstone Caldera Chronicles is a weekly column written by scientists and collaborators of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory. This week’s contribution is from Beth Bartel and Tim Dittman, from the non-profit UNAVCO consortium in Boulder, Colorado.

About 18 miles west of the Yellowstone National Park boundary in Idaho, UNAVCO field engineer Tom Lyman surveys the damage at GPS station P361 on Sawtell Peak. This is an important site, not only because it is located close to active faults in the Yellowstone region, but also because it serves as a data relay for four additional nearby GPS stations. None of the GPS equipment is transmitting data.

UNAVCO, a member of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory consortium, is responsible for maintaining the deformation network in and around Yellowstone. In Yellowstone National Park alone this network includes 14 GPS stations and six borehole geophysics stations. All the data are free and open access.
