  1. The space habitats will allow humans to be able explore space and not need to find a planet that is suitable. To find such a planet will most likely lead us to life. These planets will also never be as perfect as a habitat we build ourselves. They will be our future in my minds eye.

  2. Initial momentum for a tether is imparted to a hefty mass counterweight using rockets. An outgoing ship takes some momentum away as it is raised. Incoming ships add tether momentum which is then used to raise an outgoing ship. The tether then has net zero momentum delta if the masses are equal. Some losses in energy will occur but is this highly efficient? I am seriously curious about the physics of this if anyone can respond who knows.

  3. Your book or books must be fun the way you spin hope for a childish species like humans in these videos. Even Hawking said humans have maybe another 100 to 200 years left. Conflict is the one thing people love and suffering is the result. Can't colonize with those inherited weak traits. A rouge asteroid is our biggest threat besides ourselves and can't stop infighting to solve that. 🤣😂🤦‍♂️

  4. Other, more speculative space-faring tech?

    –Tardigrade derived vaccines. In short, if we're reluctant to engineer humans directly, perhaps it would be more productive to engineer growth and healing factors from the tardigrade, such that we become able to medically recover or protect ourselves from getting ionizing radiation sicknesses like space brain or cancers.
    –Advanced Neuralink style brain technology. Yes, the Dark Mirror Grain tech comes to mind here. One way to get around the limitations of biology would be to have ways to implicitly copy and paste memories, identities and personalities on to suitable micro-chips. Once this is done, perhaps with memristors or with quantum-capable chips, then you could automatically say a person has a doubled life, first their biological life, then their technological life as a robot, drone, probe or satellite. From there the barriers to constant serial "immortality" become less and less. Just make sure to protect your archives from ionizing radiation and capitalism, both.
    –Quantum tunneling/entanglement pagers. Yes, pagers. The idea still seems sound to me, that if we humans can pick the right atoms or molecules to entangle, then it should be possible to make a system that would let us a) send a one-to-all-points message, the equivalent of posting a note to a quantum bulletin board, and b) likewise retrieving a note on an all-to-one basis, equivalent to reading any notes that seem to have been addressed to us on said quantum bulletin boards. I don't really have the math skills to work it out, but it seems like that would be the biggest hangup to the tech: you get faster than light messaging, but there's no way to fully confirm which messages are yours, or meant for you, once sent up, and which ones aren't.
    –Using Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Supremacy Computing, combined, to predict the context-dependent near-future. And yes, that context-dependent part matters: if you talk "climate change" or "civil society" at all, the answer's always going to come back, "If current conditions persist, human intelligence and civil society both will go extinct while human beings are themselves still alive, and dull husks of their former selves. This will happen in earnest once oceanic photosynthesis becomes non-viable, sabotaging the oxygen supply." Even so? We're going to need systems like this that can help us with translating alien languages by anticipating their potential features before we receive any messages from any speculative star system. Likewise, if we can anticipate what compact fusion reactors, quantum entanglement pagers, and more would look like if they worked, it could point us in the right direction of actually getting the tech to work. The problem is that we aren't even at the Model T stage of getting some of this tech developed, and we don't have the luxury of waiting decades and decades just to see what the end refinement stage of the technology (Porsches, Teslas, or whatever else you might want to drive) looks like. We know what the International Space Station looks like: we don't know how to get to an O'Neill or McKendree Cylinder from there.

  5. Combine the Dyson swarm idea with a shield for Venus, generating useable energy while shading Venus. The JWST has demonstrated how cold the shielded side can get. It would take centuries if not millennium to cool Venus down to Earth like temperatures. Using Dyson energy capture equipment would provide immediate benefits as opposed to the long period of changing Venus into a habitable world using a shade with no other use.

  6. Not mentioned by JMG during the presentation about materials, is (drumroll) Silicon Carbide. Think of materials used for anything listed from spacecraft to space elevators and we may have a winner already, along with carbon nanotubes + diamondoid graphene. None of these materials are producible at industrial levels yet, but its getting there. Lots of sand on the moon, earth can ship up carbon, or we mine it by Robots in the Roids. (ow!)
