Dr. Smith has also appeared PBS, The History Channel, and on the National Geographic channel. Smith was recently interviewed by Theoretical Physicist Michio Kaku on his radio show Science Fantastic.

For those who have not attended a lecture by Professor Smith, you are in for a treat! Smith is an engaging lecturer who keeps attendees on the edge of their seats. You won’t want the lecture to end! He will be exploring the longer-term, broader-scale implications of the evolutionary process for our species and explain why it is not technocratic, machine-centered endeavor, but a natural continuation of human adaptation to emigrate beyond Earth.  Space exploration, emigration and his latest book, Emigrating Beyond Earth: Human Adaptation and Space Colonization has been on his mind since the 1970’s, when his father gave him a NASA publication called Space Settlements.


Come see Dr. Smith and learn about why space colonization is the next natural step in human evolution!  This is a FREE event and is open to the public.
