GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 13th March at noon SLT: Who would you take to the moon?

 


Recently a Japanese billionaire said that he intends to take six people on a trip around the moon.  He has asked for applications.  Who do you think should go?  Painters, poets, scientists?  Young people, old people?  Would you go, if you could?

What effect will the moon trip have on the people who go?  Will it inspire them to make great art? Will it make them value our planet more?

Since we are talking about the moon, what will its future be like?  NASA wants to land people in 2023.  Will people live there?  What bases will we develop?  Will we ever look at the moon and see a completely changed landscape?  Would that be a bad thing?

Come and talk about our not so distant (well, only 384,000 kilometers) future!

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!

GeekSpeak – will 2019 see the start of a race to the moon?


China has landed a lunar rover on the far side of the moon.  What will happen because of this?  How will other countries react?

When there are two massive bodies interacting in space there are five points where the gravitational forces balance out and it is easy to place satellites or space stations.  These are the Lagrange points. China has a satellite at the L2 point for Earth and the moon.  These Lagrange points are very important space real estate.  There may be a new race to claim the other four.

Will countries ditch the moon treaty?  Will China agree to allow access to their base and the L2 point?  Will we see multiple bases and multiple claims at the end of 2019?  Should we be worried about all this?  Should we be afraid of the power of China?

Fasten your seat belts, get ready for launch … !
