In this TEDx Talks, Joe Strout showcases the "most accurate space colony simulator" called High Frontier, which lets you design, build, and manage space settlements, while making an argument for orbital space colonies versus settling on Mars.

Joe Strout’s programming career began at a young age, writing articles for "Nibble" magazine in high school. Joe obtained a bachelors in psychology from the University of Miami and a masters in neuroscience from the University of California, San Diego, but couldn't resist the call of code and became a full-time software developer after graduate school. He now runs a consulting business, crafting unique software solutions to a wide range of problems. Joe and his two sons have been working on High Frontier for almost a year, and ran a successful Kickstarter campaign in November.
