ASU Interplanetary Initiative - Space to Thrive Panel
Arizona State University recently held a public event called “Space to Thrive”, laying ot the vision for the Interplanetary Institute. In a future where millions of humans live and work in space, every aspect of humanity will be present. The Interplanetary Institute seeks to show how cross-disciplinary teams will tackle the problems of space settlement. That future will not require just engineers, scientists, and test pilots, it will also need artists, designers, storytellers, business managers, philosophers, lawyers, educators, and much more.
Space is for everyone.
