GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 12th December at noon SLT:


GeekSpeak – What next for SpaceX?

As you know by now, SpaceX has successfully (apart from the final explosion) launched and landed a rocket.  SpaceX Launch Starship on First 12.5km Flight

This marks the beginning of a whole new era so we would like to ask in this week’s GeekSpeak: What is next?  Where do we go from here to build a space economy and what will become of it?

Will we see permanent bases on the moon and Mars in our lifetimes?  Will SpaceX make it possible to live away from Earth?

Or is it just a pipe dream?  Or worse, a waste of money and resources?  You must decide.  Bring your spacesuit!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at 1pm SLT in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.

GeekSpeak - how will a Mars base evolve?

This week we celebrate the arrival on Mars of the InSight lander. It will land on Elysium Planitia on November 26th.  Let’s ask what will happen next.  How will a Mars base be built?  What will come first?

What will living on Mars be like?  And who will do it?  Those who bought a one-way ticket to Mars?  Specially chosen scientists?

What will Mars colonists have to offer us?  Information?  Tourism? Mars cuisine?  When will we be able to have a pizza on Mars, with a Mars wine?

Will Mars ever be independent from Earth?  What will happen after that?

Bring your space helmet for some good ol’mars talk today 😊

IM Vulcan Viper if you have any ideas for new subjects.

Best wishes and Happy Thanksgiving!

GeekSpeak – what are you going to do on Mars? Saturday, October 8th at 12pm SLT

Last week Elon Musk unveiled his plan to send a million people to Mars.  Suddenly the question has changed from how to get there to what job will you do on Mars when you do get there.  Will you start a barber shop?  Or run a pizza hut?  Or become an oxygen dealer?  Or set up a hydroponics farm?  When will the new nation of Mars be established?

Give us your thoughts on how to start a society from scratch in a 38% gravity environment.  Will it succeed?  If you think it is all an impossible dream, tell us why.

Bring your space suit or terraforming tools to GeekSpeak.  IM Kathen Ohtobide if you need a teleport.
