QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility" - Augustine of Hippo, Sermon 19 on the New Testament

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

I've been interested in space lately. Maybe because of the Apollo Mission's 50th anniversary, maybe because of Elon Musk, maybe because of humanity's existential risk of being a one-planet species. Here are some of the more interesting reads I've come across on space exploration, mining, Mars, and humanity entering the space-faring age:

Asterank's database of asteroids and their associated mining values (Asterank)

The future of in-space manufacturing is 3-D printing (Cosmos Magazine)

AI Space Factory's Mars Habitat - MARSHA (AI Space Factory)

Small satellite launches and their growth phase (Space News)

*How and why Spacex will colonize Mars (Wait But Why)

*Note - this is an extremely long read but worth it for the imagination.
