Description

An in-depth work of reportage that dares to ask what's at stake in privitizing outer space. As a new space race dawns, startup companies are readying their engines to head into the cosmos for the sake of privitization and profit. Journalist Peter Ward investigates how such endeavors could lead not to a new golden age, but a new era of colonialism. Sitting down with tech CEOS, inventors, scientists and politicians, Ward demonstrates how rushing into space could have disastrous results, and explores what is being done to explore space and utilize its resources while keeping it a universal resource.
