On Revolutions, George Floyd, and the SpaceX Launch

What is revolution? “When you make revolution-based laws you’ll only get chaos,” says host David Gornoski as he expounds on the circular violent nature of revolutions. “Revolution is the same old, same old. It’s nothing new. What we need today is self-sacrifice.” On the news surrounding the death of George Floyd: “We don’t need dehumanizing laws, we need repentance.”
Also, technologist Dr. Max Fomitchev-Zamilov and physicist Dr. Weiping Yu join the show to reflect on the recently postponed SpaceX crewed launch, the mission to go to Mars, and the surprisingly little innovation in the sphere of rocket propulsion.
