The Butterfly Effect is the principle that notes that even the smallest actions can have sweeping effects on everything in the long term. Today we'll look at that effect and ask what it means toward chaos, inevitable events, fate, and free will itself.

Venus is a desolate scorching world on which no life can exist. Yet if it can be cooled down, there is no other planet we know of more suitable for terraforming and colonization. We will examine methods of cooling Venus down and preparing it to be settled in the future.

There's many dangerous places on Earth, and everywhere off Earth is downright lethal, from the emptiness of space to the airless and radiation soaked Moon to the smoldering inferno of Venus, humanity can't visit them without protection. We'll see what options for spacesuits are under works and what options might emerge for even better ones in the distant future.

Discussion of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations often hinges on the idea that they may have ascended to a higher state or higher level of reality, and lost interest in us and the rest of the galaxy. While we can't know what technologies or enlightened paths they might have available, we can ask how realistic the portrayals of those aliens might be, and if this notion make sense as a Fermi Paradox solution.

The Fermi Paradox ask us how in a Universe so vast and ancient we seem to be the only intelligent civilization around, with no older interstellar alien empires visible in the galaxy. But could extinction play a role in that, or might extinction events instead drive evolution forward?

Colonizing Mars and terraforming it to be a comfortable future home for humanity is quite the challenge. How would we go about it and how close is close enough for our purposes? How would we let life grow on the open surface of Mars and how would we give air and water and potentially even alter its day, year, and gravity?

A Paperclip Maximizer is an example of artificial intelligence run amok performing a job, potentially seeking to turn all the Universe into paperclips. But it's also an example of a concept called Instrumental Convergence, where two entities with wildly different ultimate goals might end up acting very much alike. This concept is very important to preparing ourselves for future automation and machine minds, and we'll explore that today.

Nuclear Fusion holds the potential to free us of so many of the constraints offered by everything from fossil fuels to renewable energy option like wind and solar, if we can just get it working. Today we'll look at the challenges facing us in terms of the physics and engineering, the various possible reactors like the Tokamak, Poylwell, NFI, and more, and see what a bright future fusion might offers us.

Alien Invasions have been a staple of science fiction for years, with motherships and UFOs assaulting Earth, but how realistic is such a thing? We'll take a look at what might motivate an attack, how it might happen, what alternatives might make more sense, and what might prevent extraterrestrials from trying.

The idea of spaceships or other machines that were essentially alive and able to repair and operate themselves has long been a popular one in science fiction. We'll take a look today at how that might be possible in the future, what advantages it would have for interplanetary or interstellar colonization, and how such biotechnology might lead to entire artificial ecosystems dwelling in the void of space.

The possibility of extraterrestrial life on other worlds has long fascinated us, as has the idea of alien life living in space itself, but while the former is often considered quite probable, the idea of anything evolving on airless moons, comets, and asteroids seems less likely. But with scientists uncovering life in ever more extreme and inhospitable environments on Earth, perhaps it is more likely than we think.

Space is an awesome place filled with virtually infinite wonders to explore, and human colonization will likely make far more. It may soon be possible for people to journey up to orbit as tourists, and in the more distant future this might become a vast trade, with tourism in Space Station Hotels or on the Moon or Mars or traveling to countless other planets, moons, asteroids, or megastructures.

There are many reasons not to eat meat, or at least less of it: medical, ethical, economical, or ecological, but the stuff is quite tasty. Today we'll look at how artificial meat technologies in the near future might allow us to produce a genuine alternative to modern methods of standard agriculture or meat substitutes, and maybe even some exotic meats not available at the supermarket.

In order to get into space, we require either huge amounts of rocket fuel or dangerously powerful energy sources, making personal spacecraft a technology limited to science fiction. But by harnessing beamed power sources to run engines, we may be able to create a spaceplane cheap enough and safe enough that anyone could have one in the future.

Today we'll explore some of those options, from superstrength and speed to options like telepathy.

Pluto and it's largest moon, Charon, are so far from the Sun and so tiny that they would not seem like promising options for interplanetary colonization. However, they may turn out to be excellent prospects precisely because the double dwarf planet offers some unique options, like space elevators right from surface to surface.

Spaceplanes long seemed like the logical next step for getting into orbit after the Space Shuttle, but have seemingly fallen to the wayside in recent years in favor of reusable rockets. But the future may see a return of spaceplanes, and we'll look at some of the more promising designs like Skylon.
