• World Futures:  What Do We Need?

In the domain of science fiction (e.g., Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Star Trek…) we see space vehicles zooming around the universe with human beings on board seemingly doing well pursuing a mission, discovering new worlds, finding new life forms, and engaging in combat.
