The stars beckon. But humans evolved to survive on Earth, not to hurtle through space.
For long-duration travel – interplanetary and, even, interstellar – what spacecraft accommodations are necessary? Is on-board human hibernation an option? Might we overcome the problems of space radiation and prolonged weightlessness? Finally, scientists may argue that the ideal craft for fast human interstellar travel is the constantly-accelerating “1-g starship,” but what do the engineers say?
Join our two speakers Dr. Pascal Lee, Planetary Scientist at the SETI Institute and the Mars Institute, and Tucker Hiatt, Director of Wonderfest.
