Space advocates at this year's International Space Development Conference, put on by the National Space Society (NSS), said they believe they can help save the world. If they are united on any single philosophical point, it is this: space exploration can and will make life better on Earth.
From Bill Nye to Virgin Galactic's Wil Whitehorn, space advocates voiced their concerns for Earth and hopes that space may provide solutions to some of our most pressing problems. Space could provide new sources of energy, natural resources, knowledge, educational incentives, etc.
None of this is new to us, of course, but it is good to see that mainstream Spacers share some of our visions for the future.
