Eternity: Our Next Billion Yearsby M. Hanlon
Pub. Date: 11/25/2008
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan US
It has become received wisdom that our world is doomed. Mike Hanlon believes that not only is humankind not doomed, but that we may be around for millions, if not hundreds of millions of years. Humans will survive. Our future is in many ways bizarre, surreal and sometimes depressing - but it will still be our world, populated by us.
