Creon is chief technologist and director of R&D at Planet Labs, and a Foresight Institute senior fellow. He previously worked at NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, where he was one of the founders of the NAS (NASA Advanced Supercomputing) division, co-PI on the Virtual Wind Tunnel project, co-founder of the NASA Molecular Nanotechnology Group (the first federally funded research lab devoted to molecular nanotechnology), co-PI on the hyperwall project, investigator on the Columbia accident investigation board, member of the NASA engineering and safety center, investigator on the millimeter-wave thermal rocket project, the Stardust re-entry observation campaign, PI on the LightForce project, special assistant to the center director, and chief scientist for the programs and projects directorate.
Creon Levit combines various topics including biology, biotech longevity, molecular nanotechnology, space, and existential hope, emphasizing the importance of biology and showcasing the complexity of cell machinery. He then explores the application of space technologies in regenerative agriculture, specifically regenerative grazing. Creon discusses the benefits of regenerative grazing and introduces the utilization of space technology in animal movement and grazing decisions. He shares his vision of integrating all five kingdoms of life for the benefit of the biosphere and conscious creatures. Creon also highlights that sustainable farming is both hopeful and feasible with near-term applications. He addresses criticisms of industrial monocrops and suggests using sustainable farming practices instead. Creon believes that aquaculture is the next frontier in sustainable farming. While he primarily focuses on science and technology, he acknowledges the importance of engaging with policy makers and discusses the challenges of incentivizing sustainable farming practices through policy. Creon emphasizes the synthesis of traditional knowledge, scientific knowledge, and technology to find the best solutions for sustainable farming. He calls for envisioning the future of agriculture and emphasizes the need for practical and sustainable solutions.
