Where will we be in 50 years? Will we have the ability to go to the stars?
Twenty years ago it would seem like science fiction, science fantasy Star Trek type stuff.
We are in a world where a variety of new technologies are converging to create a radical new civilization.
Advanced artificial intelligence
Quantum computing and beyond quantum computing
Nano tech advances
Organic and inorganic 3D printing
Genetic mastery and complete gene editing
Revolutionary forms of energy generation and propulsion
Absolutely we will go to the stars -- we can because we will have an artificially intelligent spaceship and artificial people that will survive long space flights. If we can envision ourselves doing this within the next half century or full century – I think it’s fairly self-evident that another civilization elsewhere could have developed this capability. Of course this is all theoretical. When we look at the UFO phenomenon we are looking for events that are empirically verifiable. What do you think?
