This inspiring capstone session brings together Frank White, author of The Overview Effect and Founder of the Human Space Program, and Rick Tumlinson, Founder of The Earthlight Foundation and Founding Partner of Space Fund, for a discussion of long-term large-scale space migration. From a discussion of why this is important to humanity... to the potential role of children - and how we might be able to prepare them for what's ahead, our guests laid out a compelling vision for the future. Participant questions led the discussion to exploration of inclusion, new social paradigms, and even spirituality... for human communities in space.
This was the closing session for the 3rd Space Education Summit, which was co-produced by ARES Learning. Thank you to our partners at Celestial Citizen, Earthscape VR, The Human Space Program, and Ignited Thinkers.
