Mission Possible: Creating New Countries in Ocean Waters
Imagine building floating cities in the ocean! It sounds like a wild idea, but with every passing year, technology makes it more feasible. Within our lifetimes, we will likely see the reality of mankind colonizing the ocean! This lecture will include a practical approach to building floating cities as well as some of the financial and political considerations. The approach is interdisciplinary and will include various aspects of the endeavor including engineering, structural design, business models, and funding.
