Summary
"Beyond our first tentative boot-steps on the Moon, what are the prospects for human exploration and settlement and, in the long run, large-scale human emigration to other parts of the solar system, even into the furthest reaches of space? Based firmly on scientific and technological accomplishments - as well as actual advanced projects, from those currently in development to those still barely conceptualized - the authors present in this book visionary ideas about how humans may one day propel themselves through space by making use of resources they encounter along the way. These resources coupled with new technologies, the authors suggest, will make it possible for future space travelers to literally redefine our place in the universe."--Jacket
