Overview

The author’s predictive abilities as a scholar of civilization are here stretched to the limit. What lies ahead for civilized man? This book proposes that we may be headed for the “Frankenstein civilization”, a world created by man himself. Man will remake himself through technology and he will also remake the world in which he lives.

That world could be outer space. If humanity foolishly destroys his own home on earth, the next frontier would be space. However, space does not naturally support human life so the place would have to be artificially created. The author gives serious thought to living conditions in outer space and what needs to be done.

It seems appropriate that this book was published right after the last Space Shuttle mission was launched. There’s no money in the budget either for a human colony on the Moon. The captains of this planetary “Titanic” are busy economizing on life rafts.
