Today we will begin our look at the spaceships we might use for colonizing interstellar space in the future. In order to cover the vast distances between even the nearest stars in our galaxy within the boundaries of known physics, we need vessels able to voyage at high speeds for very long periods of time while carrying everything they need to colonize another solar system, a concept typically known as a space ark or generation ship. We will explore the challenges and options for such a vessel, as well as some alternative approaches to the problem.

A visit to Ceres and the Asteroid Belt.
Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/
Ceres, a dwarf planet amid the Asteroid Belt, hold the potential to be the hub of a vast mining and manufacturing network in the Belt, as well as potentially growing the food to support future colonists. Today we'll look at colonizing Ceres and asteroid mining, faming in space, and a potential distant future of a developed asteroid belt.

Technology may one day grant us a Utopia in which virtually all tasks are performed by robots and artificial intelligence. In such a post-scarcity civilization, people may have difficulty finding a purpose to existence. Today we will explore how this may come about, what the consequences of this existential threat might be, and what purposes people may find for themselves in such a future.

Today we take a trip inward, to explore Sun-Scorched Mercury.
Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/
Mercury is the nearest planet to the Sun, a seeming airless wasteland little discussed in conversations about colonizing our solar system. Today we will challenge that, and show that Mercury may be one of the most promising places for humanity to make new homes on.

The ability to be able to copy or upload the mind has been discussed much in science fiction, and increasingly in science in recent years. Today we will examine many additional uses of Mind Uploading, along with how it works and some of its implications for concepts like Consciousness, Identity, and Individuality. We will also explore how these themes appear in Dennis E. Taylor's newest novel, The Singularity Trap, our Book of the Month.

The possibility that ancient civilizations might have encountered or even been influenced by extraterrestrials has fascinated us for as long as we knew there were distant suns they might visit from. Today we will examine the evidence and consider the numerous scenarios form the perspective of the Fermi Paradox, to see how reasonable the Ancient Aliens hypothesis is, and ask if the evidence of UFOs visiting us in the past is credible.

If sufficiently high-tech civilizations can simulate almost anything they desire, what would be the impact on how they viewed reality?

Today we will explore the possible effects on civilizations when it's individual members can have anything they want, and if society can even continue to exists if its members cease interacting with each other in favor of simulated realities.

We continue our look at Space Warfare by examining the notion of assaulting and invading planets. Often seen in fiction as vulnerable locations at the mercy of space-based weapons and fleets, we will see that they are far more hardened targets, able to serve as bastions against attack.

To see deeper into space, we will need much bigger telescopes.
Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/
As astronomy seeks to find and study distant planets and peer further and more accurately into space and time, the limitations of ground based telescopes, especially optical telescopes, represents our largest barrier. Today we will examine what those limitations are, and ways to make vastly more enormous telescopes and arrays

This episode begins an in-depth look at Post-Scarcity Civilizations, seeming Utopias where virtually anything is available to its citizens at the snap of their fingers. One of the exceptions to that may be privacy, which might be inherently impossible in such a society, and we will explore that challenge as we begin our series on such civilizations..

Far larger than any conventional Space Station, O'Neill Cylinders could potentially serve as as entire city-states or nature preserves. Today we will review how these megastructures might be built and how they may represent a superior option to terraforming planets.

Many of the strongest limitations on our technology and civilization at this time are from problems moving energy around with us, in a way which is light, energy dense, and cheap. Today we'll look at some ways we might increase that vastly, and challenges to do that and the impact such dense portable power would have.

A look at revolutionary new materials with seemingly impossible properties.

Metamaterials offer many properties normally not found in nature, from superior lenses and communications to stealth applications, potentially offering invisibility. Today we'll examine the science behind that and look at many other possible applications.

We take a moment talk about the accomplishments of Stephen Hawking, perhaps the best know scientist of the late 20th century, and a major influence on many of SFIA's concepts.

There's also a very nice tribute to him by our friends over at PBS Space Time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPKj0YnKANw

A trip deep into the far future, to the End of Earth
Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/
For most of human history, the end of Earth, the Universe, and Time itself were all identical, now we know the world will end in 4 billion years, long before the Universe begins to wind down. Today we will ask how we can extend that, and keep Earth around for far longer.

A look at the future of warfare in the void between the stars. Today we will examine the concepts from science fiction of how such conflicts might occur and see how realistic they are under known science.

To explore space and expand beyond Earth we will need a robust orbital infrastructure to serve as our beachhead. Today we will explore the necessary components for that, how we will go about creating them, and threats to them like Kessler Syndrome, a potential cascade destruction of all our space-based assets.

A journey out to the stars to colonize Alpha Centauri
Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/
We've looked at colonizing our own solar system, from Mars to Venus, and all the way inward to the Sun itself and out to the dark edges of the Oort Cloud. In this episode we conclude the Outward Bound Series by heading to our nearest neighboring star system, Alpha Centauri, and look at the trials and tribulations of colonizing binary star systems and red dwarves.

The idea that alien civilizations may exist but be hiding or asleep is a popular explanation for the Fermi Paradox, the apparent contradiction between the immensity of the Universe and the seeming absence of civilizations in it. Today we exam the concept that civilization may hibernate and what their motives for doing so would be.

We explore the history and future of missions to Mars
Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/
You can see part 1 here: https://youtu.be/Pv7aigOzQKo
For years following the Moon landings it seemed liked Mars would be our next step and sooner than later, but the costs and risks discouraged interest for around a decade after that. We pick up from part 1 when renewed interest arose and examine many of the more recent plans and what options they give us for manned missions to the Red Planet in the next decade.

This channel focuses on exploring concepts in science with an emphasis on futurism and space exploration, along with a healthy dose of science fiction. While we explore many concepts and technologies that are far beyond us now, we try to keep everything inside the bounds of known science or major theories.
