Daniel Fox: The Future of Space

Recently Daniel Fox wrote “A letter from the Earth in support of space exploration.” In his letter, he encouraged humans to see the bigger picture about life and nature. And he diffused messiness: “Evolution is messy. Life is messy. I (Earth) am messy,” he wrote. He explained that it is ok to make mistakes; it is natural. A helpful observation for today’s evolving world.
Daniel is the founder and executive producer of The Future of Space (FOS), a conversation platform designed to connect global business leaders, decision-makers, and influential public speakers. His goal is to form dialogues about the future of humankind and outer space.
The Future of Space community includes experts in space tourism, space economy, space biology, space medicine, space health, space technology, space engineering, space media, and astronautics. The platform seeks to inspire innovation and collaboration to develop best practices and to learn from peers.
Daniel calls his podcast “a candid and informal conversation between myself and those who are shaping the future of humankind in space.” His many interviewees include space experts such as Frank White, author of The Overview Effect, and Inspiration4 astronauts Sian Proctor and Chris Sembroski.
An avid nature seeker, Daniel wants to tell the story of human migration into outer space by bringing his understanding of nature into the space narrative.
His interviews are cozy. As Daniel says, the talks are “just like how two friends would chat and philosophize over a glass of wine.” Daniel’s relationship with nature has given him wisdom: he knows that humans will journey into space and that it is time to talk about it. He also knows that things may get messy; and that it is OK.
