Economies Of The Future

The future of humanity might be one of unrivaled prosperity - a post-scarcity civilization - of abundant power, advanced automation and robotics, and sophisticated artificial intelligence helping boost efficiency to all economic sectors. But what would such an economy look like, and what challenges might we face getting there?Watch the video version: https://youtu.be/ztrG20lZRvAVisit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/Isaac & Sarah's Wedding Registry: https://www.myregistry.com/wedding-registry/sarah-fowler-and-isaac-arthur-rock-creek-oh/2260571Visit our Website: http://www.isaacarthur.netSupport us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/IsaacArthurSFIA Merchandise available: https://www.signil.com/sfia/Social Media:Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1583992725237264/Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/IsaacArthur/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Isaac_A_Arthur on Twitter and RT our future content.SFIA Discord Server: https://discord.gg/53GAShECredits:Economies of the FutureEpisode 235; April 23, 2020Writers:Isaac ArthurEditors:Evan SchultheisKeith BlockusDillon OlanderProduced & Narrated by:Isaac ArthurCover Art:Jakub Grygier https://www.artstation.com/jakub_grygierGraphics:Jeremy Jozwik https://www.artstation.com/zeuxis_of_losdiajanaMusic Courtesy of Epidemic Sound http://epidemicsound.com/creator

Kickstarting Space Industry

So often expanding into space can seem like a Catch-22, where every proposed idea for development can only be practical if space is already developed. Today we'll take a look at some potential options for pushing forward our orbital infrastructure such as asteroid mining or power satellites, and take a look at what other technologies and industries might start the avalanche to our future in space and on other planets.Watch the video version: https://youtu.be/JjVYYgUxb_0Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/Visit our Website: http://www.isaacarthur.netSupport us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/IsaacArthurSFIA Merchandise available: https://www.signil.com/sfia/Social Media:Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1583992725237264/Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/IsaacArthur/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Isaac_A_Arthur on Twitter and RT our future content.SFIA Discord Server: https://discord.gg/v5UKTszCredits:Upward Bound: Kickstarting Space IndustryEpisode 163, Season 4 E49WritersIsaac ArthurEditors:A.T.

The possibility that ancient civilizations might have encountered or even been influenced by extraterrestrials has fascinated us for as long as we knew there were distant suns they might visit from.

Flat Earths

Our planet is so enormous that it can often appear flat to those living on it, as time went on and we determined it was a sphere, many still chose to assume it was a flat disc. While this notion is outdated, it is possible to construct an artificial planet as a discworld, and such worldbuilding shapes may have some advantages over a sphere. In this episode we will examine a number of Flat Earth models and some variations on the theme, and see what advantages and disadvantages they have, along with the challenges in constructing them.Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/Watch the video version: https://youtu.be/JGu-DYTYzzEVisit our Website: http://www.isaacarthur.netSupport us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/IsaacArthurSFIA Merchandise available: https://www.signil.com/sfia/Social Media:Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1583992725237264/Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/IsaacArthur/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Isaac_A_Arthur on Twitter and RT our future content.SFIA Discord Server: https://discord.gg/v5UKTszCredits:Megastructures: Flat EarthsEpisode 162, Season 4 E48WritersIsaac ArthurEditors:Daniel McNamaraDarius SaidKeith BlockusMatthew AckerProducer:Isaac ArthurCover Artist:Jakub Grygier https://www.artstation.com/jakub_grygierGraphics Team:Bryan Versteeg http://spacehabs.comJarred EagleyJeremy Jozwik https://www.artstation.com/zeuxis_of_losdiajanaJustin DixonKatie ByrneKen York of YD Visual https://www.facebook.com/YDVisual/Mike Munt of Apogii http://www.apogii.ukSergio Botero https://www.artstation.com/sboterod?fref=gcNarrator:Isaac ArthurMusic Manager:Luca DeRosa - lucaderosa2@live.comMusic:Markus Junnikkala, "We Roam the Stars" https://www.markusjunnikkala.com/Dracovallis, "Black Sacrifice" https://dracovallis.bandcamp.com/Chris Zabriskie, "The Temperature of the Air on the Bow of the Kaleetan" http://chriszabriskie.comKai Engel, "February" https://www.kai-engel.com/Serena Elis, "Science" https://soundcloud.com/serenaelis
