Outward Bound: Colonizing Alpha Centauri

A journey out to the stars to colonize Alpha Centauri Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/ We've looked at colonizing our own solar system, from Mars to Venus, and all the way inward to the Sun itself and out to the dark edges of the Oort Cloud. In this episode we conclude the Outward Bound Series by heading to our nearest neighboring star system, Alpha Centauri, and look at the trials and tribulations of colonizing binary star systems and red dwarves.

Fermi Paradox: Sleeping Giants

The idea that alien civilizations may exist but be hiding or asleep is a popular explanation for the Fermi Paradox, the apparent contradiction between the immensity of the Universe and the seeming absence of civilizations in it. Today we exam the concept that civilization may hibernate and what their motives for doing so would be.

The concept of Interstellar Empires has fascinated us for as long as we've know those stars in the night sky were other solar systems, and it's become a staple of science fiction. But rarely do we consider how realistic such galaxy-spanning confederations are, and what special challenges they'd face.
