Space Futurist, Science and Futurologist Space Exploration Websites

I guess this falls under speculative science of colonisation

The blogger isaacarthur dot net, he's also on SpaceTv
'Springtime on Mars'

Colonizing Mars and terraforming it to be a comfortable future home for humanity is quite the challenge. How would we go about it and how close is close enough for our purposes?

the US Will Still be the Only Superpower in 2030

If China puts a man on Mars before the US, I may change my opinion on this point, but the odds of that happening are not high.

Following up on this new topic by Mars_B4_Moon...

Some time ago I was active (at a low level of course) in the World Future Society.

The group held it's first "global/international" conference in Toronto in 1980, and I was there as a contributor in one of the many presentations.

Talks included one on the concept of "hypertext" when it was still a dream in the eyes of Silicon Valley.

Brian O'Leary gave a talk about mining asteroids, and 30 years later that too remains a dream, although at least humans ** have ** landed probes and even taken samples, so there ** is ** progress.

Apparently the World Future Society is still around:

World Future Society
Founded in 1966, the World Future Society is recognized as the largest, most influential, and longest-running community of future thinkers in the world. WFS ...
People also ask
What is the future society?
What do futurists believe?
Is the Futurist a magazine?

The World Future Society, founded in 1966, is an international community of futurists and future thinkers. Wikipedia

Re: Space Futurist, Science and Futurologist Space Exploration Websites

The website is still a great old school news feed website
On slashdot you can also explore tags like space exploation or chemistry, much like twitter allows a person to explore hashtags
Slashdot is almost 25 yrs old and founded by college students, it was called "News for Nerds. Stuff that Matters" after so many years you would thin something better would come along but I still find it to be one of the best news feed sites. The original site was founded way back in 1997

they also have a tech section

I also read on this forum that 'Mars' and space exploration is active as a topic on the more modern site called discord

Scott Manley has an interesting set of social media channels, he is also on Odysee$/search?q=%20ScottManley there are also science and techno and futurist channels starting to grow on Rumble Planetary Formation and the James Webb Space Telescope- channel 'Space, the Universe and Science' … scope.html

Sometimes political news sites be they left wing or right wing they can have interesting science sections under a news banner. I will give a sample of some futurism sites I see or read in a feed, the news on robot, biology, exoplanet, cyborg and exploration stuff I see in news feeds ...some of these news are fringe or deal with cosmology or science fiction speculation science rather than reality so once in a while you might see Scifi-ish conspiracy stuff in these feeds. 'NASA Paid Priests to Figure Out How to Deal With Aliens' type fringe news, you can also get some open information on some open copyright open source, free culture sites or on some dot gov websites or Dot EDU sites.

Seems that Anton Petrov who many have linked here or quoted on the newmars forums has lost his infant son, Neil Apollo Petrov, has passed away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
