Exodus Fleet
 
28:34
A continued look at Generation Ships and Interstellar Colonization. Check out Cheddar's video on the Sun: https://chdr.tv/youtue6886 In order to colonize the galaxy, we are going to have to spend huge times on board equally huge spaceships. To move thousands of people, and our ecosystem, to distant planets, will require not only giant ark-like starships, but entire fleets of them. Today we will examine how we could do this even if physics never offers us any superior methods in the future for covering the void of interstellar space faster.

Smug Aliens

We continue our look at hypothetical Alien Civilizations by examining concepts such as Zoo Hypothesis - that aliens may be keeping us secluded from the rest of the galaxy - and the motivation for non-interference, such as the Star Trek Prime Directive.

In this episode we will explore how me use technology in the future to make cold permafrost into verdant farmland through greenhouses, solar mirrors, geothermal, or other techniques, as well as how we might follow a different path, and adapt our civilization to prosper among perpetual winter and ice.

Starlifting

Starlifting is the process of removing matter from stars, and in this episode we will look at how you would do this and why you would do this. We will see there are a lot of reasons, and that the methods are not very high tech at all.

Sleeper Ships
 
32:52
Get Started with Squarespace today: http://squarespace.com/isaacarthur To journey across the stars requires voyages of centuries or more, ensuring the crew will be long dead by the time they arrive. If you want your crew available to colonize new worlds after their interstellar voyage, you either have to extend their lives, train their descendants, or freeze them till they arrive. We will examine the third option day, freezing people with cryonics, using hibernation, or suspended animation, or some other form of stasis the future might offer.

Upward Bound: The Environments of Space Habitats
 
35:04
A look at environments and ecology on truly massive space stations. Check out Cheddar's video on Extinction: https://chdr.tv/youtu0277c As we expand in space and build ever large space stations, true space habitats, we will need to incorporate ecosystems into them. However, such space habitats will have their own weather and cycles unlike those of Earth, and we will need to adapt to those unique conditions, which will vary by size and type. Today we will look at everything from smaller rotating habitats like Kaplana One and O'Neill Cylinders to vast structures such as Ringworlds, Supramundane Planets, Mega-Earths, and see the unique challenges each of them will offer us in the future.

Kickstarting Space Industry

Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/ So often expanding into space can seem like a Catch-22, where every proposed idea for development can only be practical if space is already developed. Today we'll take a look at some potential options for pushing forward our orbital infrastructure such as asteroid mining or power satellites, and take a look at what other technologies and industries might start the avalanche to our future in space and on other planets.

Use my link http://www.audible.com/isaac or text "ISAAC" to 500-500 to get a free book including a copy of "Rendevous with Rama" and a 30-day free trial of Audible. 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. "The World, The Flesh And The Devil" by J.d.

Upward Bound: Space Farming

Could we grow our foods in the heavens rather than on the earth? Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/ In order to do serious exploration and colonization of space, we will need a source of food beyond Earth. But can we go beyond simply small hydroponic gardens to entire vast space farms in orbit of our planet, and could those farming on satellites and space stations eventually replace earth-based agriculture as our main food source at home?

Outward Bound: Colonizing Neptune
 
28:17
A look at Neptune, a potential gateway to the stars... Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/ The Icy Giants, Neptune and Uranus, are often overlooked for as candidates for colonizing our solar system. Even when noted, the focus tends to be on their larger moons like Triton. Today we will challenge that notion by looking at way we might place a colony on the planet itself, and how Orbital Rings and Chandelier Cities might let us colonize any gas giant. We will also look at how helium-3, a core ingredient of aneutronic fusion abundant on Neptune, might serve as the fuel of future starships, and the physics behind some other starship drives future science might give us access to, such as laser propulsion.

Cyclic Apocalypses
 
31:14
A look at the possibility of future civilizations rising and falling. Visit our sponsor: https://skl.sh/isaac It's long been observed that empires tend to rise and fall in a seeming cycle, never identical but sharing many similarities. Today we will examine the idea that this may be the reason that we have encountered no advanced civilizations in our own galaxy, and that the solution the Fermi Paradox, as to why we have seen no alien civilizations, may be that they are caught in a perpetual loop. Unable or unwilling to use technology which might allow them to travel the cosmos. We will also consider if such a loop may await us, or that we are already in it.

Can space ships be made that will endure even longer voyages of thousands or even millions of years in the void of interstellar or even intergalactic space?

Uplifting Animal & Aliens, Part 1 of 2
 
26:00
The concept of enhancing and augmenting animal minds & bodies to be able to use and understand human technology, known as Uplifting, has long fascinated us. Today in this two-part collaboration with John Michael Godier, we will explore this concept as well as the possibility of using such technology with alien races, the polar opposite of the classic Star Trek Prime Directive.

Upward Bound: Power Satellites

How transmitting power down from space may be our future. Visit our sponsor: https://skl.sh/isaac2 Beaming energy down from satellites in orbit to replace the production of electricity on Earth may solve many of our problems, and avoid a potential economic or ecological crisis such as energy bottlenecks or global warming. Today we will explore how wireless microwave transmission of energy down to rectennas may not only be possible, but could be massively profitable in the near future and spur our exploration and colonization of space.

Could the future of humanity be at sea? Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/ Our seas and oceans have long been central to human civilization, while at the same time we built dikes and islands to reclaim land.

In the episode we will explore the options, both for ways we may extend our civilization to the sea and the motives of doing so. We will also look at seasteads and seasteading, artificial islands built in international waters with the intent of being new, sovereign nations.

Outward Bound: Colonizing Mercury
 
27:09
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.

Battle for the Moon

A look at creating artificial planets, ones vastly bigger than Earth. Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/ We return to the Megastructures series to discuss various ways of creating artificial planets, the special issues with making an Earth-like planet much larger or smaller than Earth, and the maximum size they can be, potentially larger than entire solar systems.
