This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This is an interesting and informative book about the last 50 years of space exploration since Apollo 11 and the next 50 years of space travel to come. It covers both manned and unmanned missions as well as potential programs from the USA, Russia, China, Japan and the ESA.

An interesting combination of astronomical history and futurism. I appreciate that Whitehouse is realistic about what can be accomplished by 2069, considering so much of US space exploration is based on the political climate.

An interested read.

To be able to seriously discuss the feasibility & possibilities of unmanned & human space exploration and colonization within my lifetime, splooooooosh.

While the shortest section, Part 3: And Beyond was my fav - teasers for enticing discovery pathways on other bodies in our solar system.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
David Whitehouse has written a concise work, laying out where humanity currently is with respect to space exploration and where we could conservable find ourselves by the year 2069 (one hundred years since our first landing on the moon.) His narrative skillfully weaves the perfect proportions of wonder, history, poetry, and the difficult problems and challenges that we must address. His book is honest and is complete with the strategies, of how humanity might best approach this journey of exploration and on what is possible to achieve in the future. I enjoyed is book and highly recommend it to not only space enthusiasts, but to anybody looking for an update of the current state of space exploration and what the future of that exploration could hold.… (mere)
