About Planet Earth & Beyond?

We are living through an age of unprecedented development and progress. Humanity is in a desperate scramble to halt climate change and save the planet from our Promethean apocalypse, leading to countless gargantuan advances in energy, transport, manufacturing and even geoengineering. A new space race is just starting, yet this time it promises to answer far more profound questions about the nature of existence and even help us explore and colonise celestial bodies. Even AI can now pass the Turing test, and it has only just gotten started. Over the next few decades, these forefronts of humanity will expand at rates that will boggle the mind. At Planet Earth & Beyond, we want to give you a front-row seat, helping you understand the technology, projects, research and politics that are driving these upcoming revolutions.
