Postcolonial Space Explorer!

By Stephen Collins. That about sums it up.

But all snarkiness aside, it raises some interesting questions for me how the Lao Space Program might develop its own ethical protocols for first contact with new species or colonizing other worlds in the future. Sure, we're still sort of stuck HERE, but that doesn't mean we can't plan ahead.

As I tell my young students, though, it's best to learn how to live with each other on this planet before trying to live on another.
