Visit our sponsor, Brilliant:

And what sort of civilizations and cultures might spring up around such efforts?

This channel focuses on exploring concepts in science with an emphasis on futurism and space exploration, along with a healthy dose of science fiction. While we explore many concepts and technologies that are far beyond us now, we try to keep everything inside the bounds of known science or major theories.
