We consider, evaluate, and postulate everything! New episode every Monday at 9AM CST with occasional specials later in the week.

We discuss some of the next viable frontiers for humans in the Solar System. Although the cold war space race is long over, we have transitioned into an age of private companies pushing forward to achieve what was once accomplished as well into new accomplishments. Some of the companies are SpaceX, Bigelow Aerospace, Blue Origin, and Stratolaunch Systems. There is progress being made in practical inflatable space structures, reusable rockets, space tourism, and a multitude of other areas. It's hard to say if this will be the golden age of humanity in space, but there are hints that we just might reach the moon again as well as Mars in the forseeable future. Ideas range from simply traveling to constructing bases on the Moon and Mars, or even deep space. We hope that things progress quickly, but the lack of focus from Governments cause continious stumbling blocks to our necessary expansion into outer space.

About the podcast

This podcast is all about discussing anything we feel motivated to contemplate. "We consider, evaluate, and postulate everything!" is our catch phrase for good reason, because anything is fair game to be analyzed. We speculate a lot about where technology could go in the future. We talk about gaming, or rather our lack of having time to spend gaming. We discuss ways to invest, or just how we think the economies of the world are doing. We think about how society functions with a focus on ways to communicate and share for the greater good of everyone involved. Join us for our exploration of life!
