Freeman Dyson talks about near term and long term human travel off planet in his Noah’s Ark Eggs and Warm-Blooded Plants lecture at the recent Starship Century conference, A. C. Clarke Center [UCSD] conference.

"On June 30, 2004, the Cassini spacecraft entered orbit around Saturn to begin the first in-depth, up-close study of the ringed planet and its domain. As expected, the Saturn System has provided an incredible wealth of opportunities for exploration and discovery. With its initial four-year tour of the Saturn system complete as well as an initial two-year extended mission called the Cassini Equinox Mission, the spacecraft is conducting a second extended mission called the Cassini Solstice Mission."

Post-Planetary is a research seminar exploring all aspects of design at a post-planetary scale. Throughout the semester we will screen scifi films, read bright and dark futurologies, scan, debate, and re-scan critical histories and theories, and ultimately produce a set of 'black papers', short videos and/or interactive projects that speculate on the next 50 to one thousand years of cross disciplinary design.
