This Sunday we will embark on an epic journey into the depths of Space; no, not space like moon... even better, Space like proofs of Space and Time!
As usual, please DO YOUR OWN READING! If you don't read ahead of time you will be lost.
That being said, the goal of this is to learn and help each other, so bring questions and don’t expect to know everything!
What is Spacemesh?
