Kickstarting the Space Industry

          By Henry Stewart

Futurist Isaac Arthur has created an interesting video on "Kickstarting Space Industry," which is available on his Science and Futurism You Tube Channel.

The video is focused around robust and profitable industries which would require access to space in order to maximize profits.

It's an interesting and reasonably comprehensive inventory of the concerns, constraints and opportunities surrounding the economic exploitation of the high frontier. It notes that humanity already has substantial industries (such as telecommunications, military activities and space science) which require access to space and suggests that there will soon be many more.

The sections on solar powered orbiting satellites, space mining, industrial manufacturing, novelty marketing, "space" advertising and pharmaceutical development in the microgravity environments are of particular interest to the entrepreneur.

Check it out.
