We need to think big. Starship will be big and they’ve got a big build bill. Hotels in space: good idea or bad? Where does space tourism sit in the economic model of space? Can we see more from space by looking directly into our sun? Probably! Artificial intelligence and fusion and automation could open up a door to new human lifestyle breakthroughs in this decade. Voyager I and II will power down as soon as 2025. What are we most looking forward to in space-exploration? Got something weird? Email neshcom@gmail.com, subject line “Weird Things.”

We’re back and we are imagining training artificial intelligence to create dynamic media that can be rewritten, recut, and A/B tested in realtime. What would a post-scarcity world look like post-tech-singularity? A future where real-time media modification could be automatic–that’s coming from a world where animatronics can do human-sized stunts on a theme park schedule. Send your project questions/ideas to neshcom@gmail.com, subject line “After Things.”

We go up and up in SpaceX’s Starbase rocket facility, which the FAA has approved for rocket launches (given a few dozen changes). A bet is made! Will a fully-reusable rocket launch twice within this calendar year? Would you take $2,000 to leave your house for about 30 days (some details apply)? Got something weird?

Justin: Stranger Things season 4
