Volume 4, Number 2 (Fall 2015)
We continue to develop the presentation of the Journal of Space Philosophy, and we again thank Isabelle Ramirez and Naté Sushereba in our Florida Office for their ongoing creative work.
There are two main foci in this issue. The first is on ensuring ethical behavior on Earth and in Space. Our first feature article by Yehezkel Dror, on preventing Hell on Earth, addresses the problem of the oppressive behavior that is likely to develop following the harsh transition crises we can expect to encounter as technology develops and humans move into space. In our second feature article, Mike Snead points the way forward into Space, introducing the second focus on productive uses of space. George Robinson contributes an assessment of the current state of Space law and in particular the absence of any explicit universal rights. Stephanie Thorburn offers some progressive etudes on consciousness. Terry Tang explains some key determinants for experimentation in space. William Mook offers some thoughts on the production and uses of positronium.
We are proud to offer readers this seventh issue of the Journal of Space Philosophy. Submissions, to BobKrone@aol.com, will be considered for publication from anyone on Earth or in Space.
