Dr. Bova received the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Arthur C. Clarke Foundation in 2005, "for fueling mankind's imagination regarding the wonders of outer space." His 2006 novel TITAN received the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for best novel of the year, and he received the 2008 Robert A. Heinlein Award "for his outstanding body of work in the field of literature."

Dr. Bova has been involved in science and high technology since the very beginnings of the space age.

His "Grand Tour" novels, including his award-winning TITAN, show how the human race will expand through the solar system, opening a new era of wealth and opportunity -- and conflict.

He has won six Science Fiction Achievement Awards (Hugos) and many other awards for writing.
