The Future of Colonizing Space- Neil deGrasse Tyson- WGS 2018 4.5

Space missions need to have a defensive component or economic benefit. With economic returns often uncertain, space programmes have tended to be led by governments, because only they can invest in programmes that have a long-term pay-off, whether economic or geopolitical. When it comes to saving humanity from an asteroid impact, Tyson stressed that rather than establishing colonies in space, we would be better to try to deflect the asteroid.

تحدث نيل ديغراس تايسون، عالم الفيزياء الفلكية، أن البعثات الفضائية تُطلق عادةً إما لأغراض دفاعية أو اقتصادية لتبرير غايتها. وفي غياب ضمانات العائد الاقتصادي بالنسبة إلى القطاع الخاص، تتولى الحكومات إدارة جميع برامج الفضاء لما تملكه من قدره على الاستثمار في برامج ذات عائد طويل الأجل، سواء كان لهذا العائد بُعد اقتصادي أو جيوسياسي. أما بالنسبة إلى الدعوة لبناء مستعمرات على سطح الكواكب الأخرى تحسبًا لأي دمار قد يحلّ بكوكب الأرض نتيجة تعرضه لاصطدام نيزك، قال تايسون إن تحويل مسار النيزك يظل هو الحل الأمثل في هذه المرحلة

Elon already succeeded with Space X. Neil did take an L on that one but it is good to know that he supports Space X and Elon's ambitions now. Elon and his team talks the talk and walks the walk

My dad had a co-worker who was somewhat older than he, who loved to tell a story about Sputnik. While his physics teacher was in the middle of a lecture about how aerodynamics and the limitations of chemical energy made it impossible to put an artificial satellite in orbit someone came to the classroom to tell them about Sputnik 1.
