    From richard's personal cargo

    A talk about future space exploration and another talk about Memes.
    I found this video on http://ted.com, a website that seems like a cousin of spacecollective.org. This video is not too scientific, but its an interesting talk by a man who really wants take space exploration to a new level.

    "Bill Stone, the maverick cave explorer who invented robots and dive equipment that have allowed him to plumb Earth's deepest abysses, explains his efforts to build a robot to explore Jupiter's moon Europa. The plan is to send the machine to bore through miles of ice and swim through a liquid underworld that may harbor alien life. And if that's not enough, he's also planning to mine lunar ice by 2015."




    EDIT:
    I could not resist posting this video too. This one might even be more interesting than the preceding video.

    "Here's one of those talks that can change your view of the world forever. Starting with the deceptively simple story of an ant, Dan Dennett unleashes a dazzling sequence of ideas, making a powerful case for the existence of "memes" — a term coined by Richard Dawkins for mental concepts that are literally alive and capable of spreading from brain to brain. On the way, look out for:
    + a powerful one-sentence secret of happiness
    + a compelling insight into terrorists' motivation
    + a chilling view of Islam
    And just when you think you know where the talk's heading, it dramatically shifts direction and questions some of western culture's fundamental assumptions.
    This. Is. Unmissable."
