Notes from Space
Creating a Multi-planetary Civilization (Bob Richards)
"It's important to be a multi-planet species. Occasionally, something bad happens. Just ask the dinosaurs"
"Terraforming may not be the answer... maybe we need to make humans more Mars-like."
"The cafe on the moon will have great food, but no atmosphere"
"If no other form of life exist in the galaxy, what a tremendous waste of space”
"It's not just about taking bold steps off the planet, it's about boldly staying."
"Big returns may come in 15 - 20 years following the mining of water on the moon. (Water is the base for rocket fuel - hydrogen)"
"There’s a false perception that a lot of money is spent on space. Space exploration is an investment."
