"How Would You Envision a Space Colony?"
“How Would You Envision a Space Colony?”, short film from National Geographic with Rick Tumlinson, It’s in the “FreeThink” series called “A New Space Age”.
It’s inspired by Gerard K. O’Neil’s book“The High Frontier”.Tumlinson compares today's kids to those living in the 1500s about the time that the explorers went across the Atlantic looking for the New World.
Tunlinson has kids and young adults designing a Rama-like space colony, even with artificial gravity, that he thinks people could be living on in twenty years. He says people will go to live on these colonies, the Moon, or Mars, or maybe further (like near Europa or Titan?)
