The People of NewSpace: George Sowers — Power, a Philosophical Analysis
The first of thirty six reasons to attend ISPCS. In a keynote address at 10th Annual International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight in Las Cruces N.M. on October 15th, 2014, Dr. Sowers discusses the concept of power as presented in his book The Philosophy for the Future. Sowers argues that that the overarching goal of humanity should be to maximize the power of humankind in the long run. Human expansion beyond earth in general and commercial development of space in particular are seen to be perfectly aligned with that overarching goal.
