Event Details


Space activities are supported by sound economic arguments, with global business revenues from space activities in the order of hundreds of billion dollars every year. Why did humans however, decide to go to space in the first place? What moves humans to try and literally reach for the stars? When Earth itself is affected by complex global problems, and nations fight for diminishing resources, why do some nations and visionaries expend resources to put humans and human-made objects in space? Is it ethical to strive to expand the reach of human civilisation beyond the gravitational pull of our planet? These and other questions will be explored by Dr Jacques Arnould, resident ethicist with the French Space Agency (CNES), and Adjunct Professor with the International Space University.
