Eric and I talked about a range of topics in the interview. But one area that I want to call out is his hopes for humanity in 200 years. In that time humanity could branch out to the moon, Mars, the moons of Jupiter & Saturn, and be on our way to other stars. This is the vision that can help us to embrace a more positive future.
What is your view of the future as we get ready to take those next steps on the moon? I’d like to talk to you about it.
