it was further popularized by a 1966 paper written by economist Kenneth E.
Boulding titled “The Economics of the Coming Spaceship Earth” [1, 2]. Fuller,
Boulding, and other thinkers tell us clearly that the Earth's resources are finite
and that it is ...

Like "technocracy," the phrase "Spaceship Earth" echoed in a broad range of
cultural products during the Space Age. In 1963, Buckminster Fuller published
Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth; in 1966 Kenneth Boulding wrote Human
Values on the Spaceship Earth. Both aimed to map a new consciousness for a
sustainable environment that would abandon reliance on fossil fuels and develop
sources of renewable energy. Along with so many other works of the era, they

Also in 1968, Buckminster Fuller's book Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth
was published. 'We are all astronauts' he writes, on Spaceship Earth. In order to
