TED Talks: How to go to space, without having to go to space

Angelo Vermeulen is a space researcher, a biologist, and an artist. He was also crew commander of a NASA-funded Mars simulation, in which six crew members spent four months locked away together in a dome in the crater of the Mauna Loa volcano on Hawaii. The crew was conducting a food study, but the experiment gave Vermeulen other ideas. He started encouraging artists from around the world to build their own starship prototypes - and then live in them together. This is a fascinating talk by a big thinker who believes that "we will start inhabiting outer space," sooner or later, and we'd better start planning for it. The video is a little over seven minutes in length, and like most TED Talks comes with an Interactive Transcript and offers Related talks that may be of interest to readers.
