  • 4:55 – The Artemis Accord: “It has this idea that we’ll work together in space in peace and have heritage locations on the moons. It’s quite magical and lovely to think about.”
  • 6:45 – Asteroids R Us: The first trillionaires are going to be people working in space. It’s incredibly expensive to work up there but the financial payoffs are also big.”
  • 11:55 – Cities in Space: “It’s such a fascinating idea to think about a hotel in space because that really is a smart city in space.

Not science fiction, and already underway, says Anthea Foyer, Sector Development Officer with the City of Toronto, who has been following this race to space closely. Not really in an official capacity for the City of Toronto, but more as a passionate enthusiast of cities and space, she’s published articles on the topic and joins Joe Kornik, VISION by Protiviti’s Editor-in-Chief, to discuss this fascinating topic.
