#56: Space Mining with Daniel Sax

Mining asteroids will ultimately benefit humanity on and off the Earth in a multitude of ways.”- Peter Diamandis

Peter Diamandis might be right, but asteroid mining is probably not imminent–at least not in the way that lunar mining is.

With both the NASA and the Chinese National Space Agency having designs on establishing permanent lunar bases within the next 5 to 10 years, mining on the moon will be a necessity. It’s just too expensive to supply all the needed resources to maintain the outposts from earth.

Daniel Sax is the cofounder and CEO of the Canadian Space Mining Corporation. His route to that post is, in itself, a fascinating tale. In this episode of Seeking Delphi,™ he explains both his personal journey and that of the company.

#55: The Longevity Dialogs Part 3, The Science and Technology of Growing Young with Sergey Young

“We have created science and technology to extend our life, but we haven’t created life we want to extend.”–Sergey Young, Seeking Delphi episode #55, explaining why he believes more people do not support radical life extension.

Few individuals have done more, from an advocacy standpoint, to promote breakthroughs in human longevity, than Sergey Young. Seeking Delphi™ returns with a fascinating interview with Sergey on the occasion of the release of his new book, The Science and Technology of Growing Young. The book provides a comprehensive overview of where longevity research is now, where it could be going in the future, and what you can do, in the meantime, to get the most health and vigor out of your own life. We also discuss the current state of the soon to be announced longevity XPrize.
