This article explores The economic feasibility of von Neumann probes for space exploration and colonization. Find out more about The economic feasibility of von Neumann probes for space exploration.
Space is a mystery and a fascination to most of us. We read so much information about living in space and the effects that space can have on the human body that we do not always know what to believe. In the video below, retired astronaut Chris Hadfield debunks common space myths and answers the […]
A deep look at some of the truly advanced and surprising options that might become available to us as we improve our skill with genetic engineering, ranging from altering humans to adapting life to live on alien planets or to serve as machines. Isaac will also look at methods for doing genetic engineering, such as […]
What is Starlifting? Removing material from a star for industrial use or for stellar husbandry. The energy required for this process comes from the star itself, either directly from its luminosity or from fusion or matter conversion of the lifted material. Starlifting is the process of removing matter from stars, and in this episode Isaac […]
What Are Matrioshka Brains? A Matrioshka Brain is a hypothetical megastructure, based on the Dyson sphere, of immense computational capacity. It is an example of a Class B stellar engine, employing the entire energy output of a star to drive computer systems. Such a structure would be composed of a collection of one or more […]
