The question is whether civilization as we know it can survive a transformation from values laid down by a few (the elite) to a global auction offering different and often conflicting values and perceptions. With luck a kind of benign global civilization may emerge. The alternative is conflicts born out of values justifying violence and armed conflicts against those who think otherwise — the easy way.

Roger Dean creates wonderful science fiction scenery.
Recently read Against the Fall of Night by Arthur C Clarke, which is bursting with interesting ideas. Some more for thought:
Outer Space – I bet you can figure out with decent certainty your location across the entire universe just from sampling the nearest bit of space.
Heliosphere – Similar to the above; every drop of space from many AUs away to the nearest lake has a unique composition.
Deep Space Network – at the very least a catchy name
Voyager 1’s Family Portrait
New Horizons – Almost to Pluto!
Thermoelectric Effect – not directly related, but super cool
