This video is also on YouTube.

On July 20, the anniversary of the first human landing on the Moon, the speakers explored long-term perspectives on human space expansion, and the intersections of human space expansion with highly imaginative, far-out concepts in science, philosophy, and politics (and science fiction of course).

Highlights: remaking humans with bioengineering and synhetic biology for space expansion (Mason); a social, cooperative spacefaring roadmap for the next century (Stellar Magnet); cosmic evolution, complexity, exotic vitology, cosmist values (Vidal); the magnificent collaborative science fiction universe of Orion’s Arm (Drashner & Nilsen); powerful libertarian arguments and legal/political enablers for space expansion (More & Bell).
