Like McDonough, Shipman includes his personal view of the future, not only in space science and applications but also in new roles for humans, both in the space station and on the surfaces of the moon and Mars. His cautiously, supportive view of such activities offers a perspective that makes it required reading for visionaries as well as cynics. This book is one of the best space overviews published for the non-specialist audience. McDonough, American Physicist, educator.
