Well, if countries and agencies do nothing to deal with space junk, space exploration will halt. There is a tipping point coming, once space junk/debris starts colliding and forming more and more and more fragments, NO LAUNCHES will be possible due to the high risk of losing them. Given the rate at which junk is being left in space and even idiotic nations doing tests to destroy satellites, This is issue is likely. We’ll likely hear about it in the next 10 years.

FYI, those rural villages in Zambia are being mapped by Akros, Inc. not the Gates Foundation. These maps are used to measure the effectiveness of indoor residual spraying for malaria. These maps were historically made using funding from USAID. Gates only recently came on as a funder in collaboration with PATH.

Richard Gates (3 months ago)
The idea that only the government can do this is historically inaccurate. Look here at our own nation. The arrival of the Pilgrams on the Mayflower was a combination of business and religious purposes. It was funded by business, not government. Those first years resulted in property rights and free enterprise. Assuming Americans will tame the wilds of space, this is the model.

Yes we must fix the problems on Earth thats a big true and one of the big problems that we must fix after the violence, the extreme consumming and polution problems, is the superpopulation on Earth... this beautiful and blue planet on this solar system is superpopulated wright now so...we can solve this problem by going to space and travel to stars and colonizing other places, moons whatever...

Justin Noker (3 months ago)
There is one thing I'd like to point out. In the past, Companies did often make long term investments that did pay off in the very long term, the building of the transcontintential railroad is proof of this, if the companies that built it we're only concerned about their short term profits, the US would be vastly different today than it is now. It's an investment they made 150 years ago, yet today the railroads are still reaping the profits from it. Something changed in business mindsets that make them only look at the short term over the long term. If you could somehow convince companies to have the same mindset that built the Transcontintential Railroad, then we will experience rapid advancement, just like the Railroad provided.

You seem to be confused about units. 12 inches = 30 cm but 12 sq inches = 77 sq cm. Plus, the size you're talking about most likely isn't 12 sq inch but rather 1 sq foot = 144 sq inches. Maybe Brilliant can help. Good video though.

It will be interesting to see how property rights will be distributed to planetary bodies outside of Earth. More than likely it will be some international consortium of governments, as well as the richest companies and people who will get land and mining right claims, while the commoner gets nothing.
Justin Noker (3 months ago)
oldtwins na well currently, international treaties have it so that space is international territory, nobody has ownership of anything aside from anything they bring there. It's an often cited issue with space colonies, as setting up any rule of law would be in violation of the treaty, as you'd essentially be making a nation (or at least a national claim) in an area that it's forbidden in.

The fact that deep space exploration isn't profitable right now just demonstrates how little value it will bring us. Better to wait until the technology develops more than to rush into it.

Jonasz314 (4 months ago)
Satellite imagery gets you ~decent resolution, but most of Google Maps imagery today is actually from planes. US has its own satellite to survey lands, they take 1cm resolution which is enough to make out license plates on cars. Come think of it, they had incredibly high resolution cameras back in the 70s on the SR71 Blackbird, so nowadays they could probably photograph a mosquito from low orbit.

Does anyone else want to sent a satellite to space that is a toaster* instead of just the size of a toaster? (At 17:59 Wendover mentioned a satellite the size of a toaster) * (The toaster should have solar panels that way we can also toast bread in the vacuum of space)
Travis (4 months ago)
I was happy to hear your closing remarks. I'm so tired of hearing "Private Space Flight is the future." It's not wrong, but it's only the immediate future. People and politicians love to bitch about government spending or inefficiency. Some even go as far as saying most government entities shouldn't even exist...but without the U.S. and Soviet government's massive investment 60+ years ago, none of the componies, projects, employees, and millionaire executives would even exist. A lot of these people who reject spending on space exploration don't even bat an eye when trillions are thrown into the military because they see defense from hostile humans in other parts of the world as essential.........but expanding humanity outside of just this planet and harvesting the vast resources in space could not only lead to major leaps in technology, but could remove the threat of foreign aggression. A world where we have the resources to provide comfortable lives for every single one of us would all but end major conflicts. OH well.....

Wait...With that kind of resolution - theoretically speaking - if you were able to map the entire Earth every second of every day, could you use that data to build a visual history of the earth? In one year from now, would it be possible to go back and look at today's date and see events exactly how they happened, on any given location of the planet?
