🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

Per the PM's speech, 4 pillars of Indian #SpacePolicy:
1) allowing the private sector to innovate;
2) government acting as an enabler;
3) preparing the youth for the future; and
4) seeing the space sector as fuel for India's development.

English summary of the PM's remarks.

Nicely in synch with the Quad's agenda for space cooperation.

Livetweeting today's @SWFoundation Summit for Space Sustainability, using the hashtag #SWFSummit21
From @WaleedCandC: When looking at #ClimateChange the space-based EO perspective provides us:
-the global scale-view of climate change
-data to inform the implications of our actions
-tools to improve our models so we can better prepare for & mitigate changes. #SWFSummit21
Thelma Krug, Vice-Chair of the @IPCC_CH:
Remotely sensed data reduces our uncertainties in knowing our "energy budget" & "sea level budget," as well as better predict future conditions.

Remotely sensed data boosts re-analysis, homogeneity & continuity of datasets. #SWFSummit21

1/ Ok so I guess it's time for a thread on the whole "Biden doesn't care about space" thing
2/ Lots of griping and commentary from the #space community about the lack of focus/interest on space from the Biden Admin so far. Let's unpack where that comes from and why
3/ Part of it comes from wonks like me who are concerned that there are not any space policy appointments at and wish to see more movement on space issues

1) Let's game out what a realistic independence movement in #space might look like. AS ALWAYS these views are my own. We're going to need to draw from #spacelaw, #internationalrelations, #InternationalLaw, and #history here. A thread.
2) Let's posit that the goal is a sovereign, self-governing habitation on #Mars, free-floating, or on the #Moon, not subject to control by a terrestrial country. How do we get from where we are now to there? Yes we've all read Moon is a Harsh Mistress and the Red Mars trilogy.
3) The first thing to realize is that you can't do this in one step. Ops in space are entwined with terrestrial activities and governments so separation is hard. As for law, the #OuterSpaceTreaty requires countries to exercise jurisdiction & control over activities, even private.
