Episode 10 - Space Colonies pt 1

In this first of I don't know how many parts, we take a look at some of the proposed designs for large space stations, as well as some of the hazards of living in space long-term. I also ruminate on the size of the universe

In the news: new brain maps and no love for a unifying theory of everything.



Notes and links:

Brain Maps

No theory of everything yet

Info on large space stations and their technology. And several depictions of these stations, among my favorite kind of sci-fi art.
