The study of any subject, with an eye towards applying that knowledge to the development of outer space, is likely to trigger a heightened level of engagement. As technological advances continue to occur, along with agenda setting of newer intelligent space telescopes aimed at locating exoplanets and new star systems, and asteroid mining operations, humankind will soon enter a true spaceage. Visionary thinkers and educators have an opportunity to help increase public awareness that outer space is in the process of being developed. I advocate for inclusion of a wide range of people from diverse backgrounds, nations, professions and disciplines, and it suggests that this can be accomplished through education.
