From the Back Cover "Let the meek inherit the earth―the rest of us are going to the stars! Here′s how it′s going to be done." ― Robert Zubrin "These articles are not ′just science fiction.′ They are things we can do―and with any luck at all and vision and determination we will." ― Stanley Schmidt Take off on a thrilling journey of space exploration and speculation―to the realm where science fiction becomes science fact―as leading writers researchers and astronautic engineers describe a not–too–distant future of interstellar travel and colonization. From cable cars that ride "skyhooks" into space to rockets that can refuel out of Martian air from "terraforming" planets (a process that makes them habitable for human life) to faster–than–light propulsion systems Islands in the Sky offers an astonishing collection of challenging―and plausible―ideas and proposals from the pages of Analog magazine. Brilliant and provocative here is fun–filled reading for everyone interested in science technology and the future. See all Product Description
