Tid: Mon 16/01 - 2012 17:00 - 20:00
Plats: Café Hängmattan
Café Hängmattan i Stockholm kommer att bli den första hållplatsen för Douglas
skandinaviska föreläsningsturné som består av 10 föreläsningar i Sverige, Norge och Danmark
In a vibrant and entertaining way, Douglas presents the basic tenets of a
Resource Based Economy, using real life examples from his work in space engineering,
topped off with a 1 hour Q&A session after the lecture.
Short description of Doug’s RBE lecture:
“The word “economy” is derived from the Greek word “οἰκονομία” and literally translates into “house hold budget”. As such, most would agree, that it should consider all aspects of how to maintain and sustain life in the most efficient and sustainable way possible.
It is beyond question however, that our current global economic structure has increasing trouble fulfilling this obvious basic requirement, as we are witnessing more and more financial instability in the global markets than ever before.
Douglas Mallette, former systems engineer at the Space Shuttle Program, and current CEO of Cybernated Farm Systems, presents a very different, yet totally obvious approach to our global house hold management. This approach, known as a “Resource Based Economy”, uses the methods of science applied to the entire social system, basing decision making on an integrated systems approach, much like that used in space exploration.
Douglas asks the question “Why aren’t we using the same methods on Earth that we do in space? Our vast knowledge gained through our space missions dictate to us a methodology of how to survive; If you mess up in space, you die. That is equally true on Earth, we just seem to have lost track of that in our quest for growth.”

Mer Info om Douglas Mallette:
Douglas Mallette BioDouglas graduated high school in 1994 and served in the United States Navy until 1998. Several years later he returned to school to refocus his career ambitions to space exploration and development. He received his degree in Engineering Technology (Space Systems) in December of 2007. Currently he lives in Orlando, FL with his wife and daughter.
Douglas is a former Systems Engineer for NASA’s Space Shuttle Program, and is now pursuing the start up of his own company, Cybernated Farm Systems, dedicated to using technology to help humanity by using 21st century capabilities to quell the global hunger problem.
Douglas manages a Blog (http://thespaceadvocate.blogspot.com/) where he discusses current news, trends and stories as they pertain to space, science, technology and society. He is also an advocate of advancing humanity to a new socioeconomic paradigm called the Resource Based Economy (RBE), dedicated to the social advancement of humanity beyond our current detrimental cycles, using science, engineering and technology as a means to better the planet and all human life on it.
Douglas is a published author (Turning Point), which discusses how space exploration and development is vital to the future of mankind, and to this end he also gives lectures related to how science, engineering and technology can be better used to help improve the lives of all people on Earth and usher in a new era of peace and prosperity for mankind.
“I am coming from the point of view of a man who desperately wants to see human expansion into space on a more permanent basis. I want my daughter to grow up in a world where life is better for all mankind, and going to space is not reserved for a select few, but an opportunity for many to undertake.”
His book (Turning Point: How Space Exploration and Development Will Determine the Rise or Fall of Humanity) is available in eBook format (Barnes & Noble Nook, iTunes, etc.) and on:
