Final Frontier
Stacks Image 31
Star Trek was right — there is only one final frontier, and that is space...

Human beings are natural explorers, and nowhere is this frontier spirit stronger than in the United States of America. It almost defines the character of the US. But the Earth is running out of frontiers fast.

In Brian Clegg's
The Final Frontier we discover the massive challenges that face explorers, both human and robotic, to uncover the current and future technologies that could take us out into the galaxy and take a voyage of discovery where no one has gone before… but one day someone will. In 2003, General Wesley Clark set the nation a challenge to produce the technology that would enable new pioneers to explore the galaxy. That challenge is tough — the greatest we’ve ever faced. But taking on the final frontier does not have to be a fantasy.

In a time of recession, escapism is always popular — and what greater escape from the everyday can there be than the chance of leaving Earth’s bounds and exploring the universe? With a rich popular culture heritage in science fiction movies, books and TV shows, this is a subject that entertains and informs in equal measure.

Reviews

Brian Clegg takes the reigns to steer us where no one has gone before in his brilliant new book, Final Frontier… His is a bold, new journey that gives us a glimpse of reality and hopes for wonders that remain to be discovered… His style is nothing less than accomplished, literary prose. D. Wayne Dworsky San Francisco Book Review

An enjoyable romp across space and time, from Cyrano de Bergerac to future space-warp-driven interstellar craft, via Verne, Wells, and the possibility of colonising the solar system. John Gribbin, Author of In Search of Schrödinger’s Cat

A fascinating journey through the subject of space exploration… This book is a wonderful discussion of how our exciting voyage [into space] will probably unfold. Rhodri Evans, popularscience.co.uk

Imaginative account of how to rekindle the thrill of the Apollo program and launch further pioneering voyages.Clegg makes an exciting case for looking beyond to the moon, planets and stars—and for doing this sooner rather than later. Readers will enjoy Clegg’s lively, enthusiastic account of the technical barriers to exploring the universe. Kirkus Reviews

Clegg sets his book apart from others through his thoughtful survey of fictional space exploration in books, film and television, providing examples of adaptations and threats - both social and technological - that we’d face in space. Covering a wide range of topics from space elevators and solar sails to space arks and hardscrabble ‘frontier’ colonies, Clegg offers readers much to think about. Publishers’ Weekly
