What Is the Cyber Revolution?

  • Joseph N Pelton


The world as we know it is changing. This is no small change but fundamental change. These are sea-changes that will alter the course of human history. There are now truly massive drivers of change afoot. These basic shifts are much larger than most people comprehend. Certainly, we are not prepared for the “Cyber Revolution” or transformations that ‘Space 2.0’ can bring about. These capabilities can open the door to what we call “the Fourth Wave Economy.” In this Fourth Wave Economy work will be redefined. The Internet will challenge democracy. NewSpace systems can not only create a new space economy but also totally new capabilities that might allow us to create new space structures that could allow us to better cope with climate change or even terraform Mars so that its newly created atmosphere can sustain vegetation and life.
