- How a Group of Elite Scientists Pursued Space Colonies, Nanotechnologies, and a Limitless Future
- By: W. Patrick McCray
- Narrated by: A. T. Chandler
- Length: 11 hrs and 4 mins
In 1969, Princeton physicist Gerard O'Neill began looking outward to space colonies as the new frontier for humanity's expansion. A decade later, Eric Drexler, an MIT-trained engineer, turned his attention to the molecular world as the place where society's future needs could be met using self-replicating nanoscale machines. These modern utopians predicted that their technologies could transform society as humans mastered the ability to create new worlds, undertook atomic-scale engineering, and, if truly successful, overcame their own biological limits.
