Why does the space age matter?
With explosive growth in space infrastructure and tourism, the great endeavor into the final frontier is no longer for the select few. Jews hold an interesting place in humanity as being part of a long-standing civilization; however, all peoples will need to grow in their thinking in order to thrive in the space age. As more people see earth from low earth orbit and beyond, society and everyone’s sense of meaning will shift, even if you don’t leave the earth.
How does this podcast fit in?
This podcast takes seasonal lenses on the ideas, people, forces, and stories shaping Jewish civilization in the space age. In the first season, Jacob sets the framework for his perspective and the show’s mission. Episodes are framed around a question and an idea in three parts.
