How does a science-driver program pay for itself differently than does an infrastructure investment? How will LaRouche’s Mars colonization effort change human economics in a way that the Apollo program did not?
Despite popular opinion and the lies of the mass media about a recovery, is there a way to actually know that we are in fact in the throws of a global economic collapse, which has recently entered a new phase, as LaRouche had forecast.
In this third class, we begin by elaborating the concepts of energy-flux density and potential relative population density through an examination of the 1960's Apollo program.
The first in a series of classes to be presented in New York City by members of the basement, dealing with the physical-economic principles expressed by a Mars colonization program. It begins with an introduction to some of those key principles, followed by a presentation of Vladimir Vernadsky's ideas of the three universal phase-spaces of the lithosphere, biosphere, and noosphere.
Members of the Basement discuss some of the frontier questions of science posed by accelerated spaceflight, touching on biology, cosmic radiation, and the role of the asteroid belt in the solar system.
