On 29 May 2020, an ethicist, an astronaut, an engineer, and a business leader convened for a spirited discussion about the return to human spaceflight and how close we are to building a sustainable civilization beyond Earth. This session covers:

  1. How to cope with inherent human challenges – both physiological and psychological – to living and working off-Earth.
  2. Technical and design solutions needed to expand off of planet Earth to other worlds.
  3. Our ethical responsibility as this journey unfolds, and how we ensure we meet it.
