Pressestimmen' ... this is probably one of the best examinations of what could happen next available in print. Space factories, missions both manned and robotic, various new kinds of propulsion and space-based power for the Earth are all covered. ... definitely recommended reading for anyone wondering what's likely to happen over the next century or two.' Nick Chang, Focus 'Overall, though, this is a significant contribution to a debate that should concern us all.' Astronomy and Geophysics '... this book is a rewarding read and thought provoking too ...'. Spaceflight 'This is a good read and the authors discuss a wide range of subjects well. With such a wide remit one might consider a specialist book preferable but this publication meets its aims well, with a clear and highly readable style ... This is an excellent book and I can thoroughly recommend it.' Astronomy Now
