Humans are rapidly moving toward becoming a true spacefaring species. Are we ready? This session will discuss the hard problems and issues that confront us as humans embrace deep space as part of our living experience... from technology to design, physiology, food, the humanities, human nature/psychology, space/planetary ethics, etc. And how these new understandings and insights can be leveraged now to enhance life and humanity on Earth.
