The technology revolution is moving into space. Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Paul Allen and other tech billionaires are investing in projects to open the frontier to business and settlement. By next year the first non-government human space flight operations will begin, meanwhile a dozen or more companies are almost ready to fly or have begun commercial space activities.

Companies are also raising millions to mine the Moon and harvest asteroid resources, with the first missions planned within five years. New technologies, processes, and most importantly a new attitude has taken the old space program and – rather than killing it as some have proclaimed – is building on its amazing legacy to throw open the airlock to space.

So how do we redefine our human space activities in light of a possible new partnership between governments and the people? Why Must our governments not just encourage this to happen, but help Make it happen? What does any of this have to do with a spiritual quest to explore the Universe and find the meaning of life? Why is this possibly the most important human activity of all? Why is it happening now?

What does this have to do with you?
