LaRouchePAC Fireside Chat - China's Shot to the Moon: Engineering Feat or Something Much, Much Better?
On December 7th, China launched its Chang’e 4 mission to the unexplored, far side of the Moon, opening, potentially a new era of scientific discovery. As Lyndon LaRouche wrote repeatedly, space exploration is the next frontier of human discovery, of creation of whole new human platforms for higher orders of existence, as we postulate and discover the laws of the universe. From a practical perspective, the Moon could provide the most ready fuel for powering fusion reactions. Human colonization is a stepping stone to Mars.
Both LaRouche and Krafft Ehricke wrote that space exploration freed human creativity and imagination from the bounds of fixed modalities of earth, while, at the same time, completely transforming our existence here through the discoveries which result. Ehricke, for example, envisioned the use of mirrors positioned in space to maximize and control sunlight to enhance agriculture’s growing seasons. The mission orientations for exploring space present a staged series of paradoxes and challenges to extant theories of the laws of the universe, forcing entirely new discoveries as the mission advances. This is obviously similar to how Beethoven composes music.
Imagine if we here, again undertook this challenge which President Trump has indicated he wants to do. Could the shoe-horned “identities” the Empire has developed for us survive? Join us for tonight’s discussion with Megan Beets of our Basement Science Team.
