Space: The Next Twenty-Five Years by Thomas R. McDonough

This exciting work realistically assesses the immediate options for the future of space exploration. Space offers a comprehensive examination of some of the major new projects proposed by scientists and policy makers around the world. Chronicling the positions of leaders such as Isaac Asimov, Buzz Aldrin, Carl Sagan and Edward Teller, the book argues for the importance of developing long-range goals for the U.S. space program and for the need for international collaboration. Highlighted with numerous photographs and illustrations, this book presents a concise history of space exploration up to the present and then examines exciting and often controversial possibilities, including Star Wars, lunar space stations, space colonization, manned missions to Mars, potential mineral and energy resources, interstellar travel and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Space is a book for anyone interested in the future of cosmic exploration.
