Dr. Dan Brown, Interim Chancellor for Research at UH, Hilo

The final speech before Frank Schowengerdt's overview and accomplishments of PISCES was given by Dr. Dan Brown, the Interim Chancellor for Research at the University of Hawaii, Hilo. His perspective is interesting because he is an anthropologist and views the whole enterprise of colonizing the Moon or even Mars as more than just a fascinating project. Most importantly, he views PISCES as a place where multiple disciplines from the hard sciences and the social sciences and other fields will be able to collaborate together and enhance the development of the university. Dr. Fox provides an introduction to Dr. Brown and provides a nice overview of the development of the university as a whole.

Here the audio version of his talk:
