The Space Debate

Final Friday of our Space Exploration Discourse

Thanks for the comments regarding May’s Discourse. New topic to be unveiled Sunday morning!

A Quick 8min Debate

Hit the highlights with this one. Space journalist and Astrophysicist Sarah Cruddas, Space Scientist Dr Helen Fraser & Andrew Simms, an Author & Campaigner debated investing more in space exploration on Saturday Morning Live.

Proper Debate from the Kids

When you have the bandwidth, dive in here. The National Air and Space Museum and the National Association for Urban Debate Leagues (NAUDL) presented a public student debate on the 2011-2012 US policy on space exploration and development beyond the Earth's mesosphere. Two teams of students from the country's top urban debate leagues squared-off in "The Great Space Debate."

And now for some fun

What may have started as a science fiction speculation—that perhaps the universe as we know it is a computer simulation—has become a serious line of theoretical and experimental investigation among physicists, astrophysicists, and philosophers.

American Museum of Natural History’s annual Asimov debate covered the Universe as a simulation in 2016. Listen to Philosophers, Physicists and Cosmologists debate the merits of the argument.
