Video: Freeman Dyson talks about mandatory cheapness, Noah’s Ark Eggs, warm-blooded plants, and more

I’ve been watching some of the many excellent videos from the Starship Century Symposium. For example, the video below shows Freeman Dyson‘s very interesting talk in which he first discussed key factors in  opening up the solar system to humanity in the coming decades and then moving out into interstellar space in the coming centuries. Lots of fascinating ideas presented. I particularly liked his emphasis on “cheapness” for space transports and other space hardware because affordability is crucial if large scale migration into and development of the solar system is to ever take place.
