BIS WEST MIDLANDS: The Necessity for Space Colonisation!

Saturday 9 March 2024 at 1400 – 15:15 GMT

VENUE: Online on Zoom (BIS West Midlands)

Valentín Elías Pineda will discuss the needs, challenges and important changes required to support the future colonisation of space. Please register HERE or via the West Midlands Facebook page.

Talk Overview

Globalization has been the social and economical motor for humanity in the last 30 years, but from now on continuing with it is a peril because its projection will combine an exponential evolution of computing and AI with an exponential scarcity of goods, food, and water due to climate change, growing inequality and unemployment, resulting in a global chaos and many confrontation risks.

It seems clear that a growing human population will need growing sources for land, resources and clean energy sources. Only a massive migration to space industry is capable to achieve this and achieve that humanity wins scarcity forever from 2080 onwards. Technology will be capable to achieve low-cost access to space for all citizens and thus making possible such migration, but in order to achieve this, some urgent changes are needed to be implemented in the next 10-15 years on education, migration of energy sources from fossil fuels to clean and efficient sources and making the necessary investments for low-cost access to space.

These urgent changes are the same ones needed to revert the effects of existing globalization and climate change. The actions undertaken the next 10-15 years will sustain all the evolution in the XXI Century. Finally, Space migration and its involved activities and possibilities is the best warranty for the so needed peace in the world.
