Description

We're on the cusp of new era in the great adventure of space exploration.

More than a half-century ago, humanity first hurled objects into space, and almost 50 years ago, astronauts first walked on the moon. Since then, we have explored Earth's orbit with shuttles, capsules, and space stations; sent robots to Mars, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus; sampled a comet; sent telescopes into orbit; and charted most of our own planet.

What does the future hold?

In Space 2.0, space historian Rod Pyle, in collaboration with the National Space Society, will give you an inside look at the next few decades of spaceflight and long-term plans for exploration, utilization, and settlement.

Critic Reviews

“"For spaceflight fanatics like me, now--the dawn of the Second Age of Space Exploration--is the most exciting time to be alive since the moon missions of the late 1960s and early '70s . . . In Space 2.0 , ace science writer Rod Pyle--an advisor to NASA and the National Space Society--provides an engaging and expertly-informed explanation of how we got this far, along with a factual yet inspiring intro to our around-the-corner new adventures in space. Strap yourself in tight. It's a fascinating ride!" --Geoffrey Notkin, member of the board of governors for the National Space Society and Emmy Award-winning host of Meteorite Men and STEM Journals " Space 2.0 offers a grand overview of everything happening in space from JPL's robots to Elon Musk's biggest ideas, and that is saying a lot! Pyle makes the complex technologies and intractable policy debates behind all this accessible to any reader without dumbing them down. It's a great read for those who already excited about our new future in space and a must read for those who do not yet get it.." --Director of the University of Southern California's Commercial Spaceflight Initiative and former NASA White House Liaison " Space 2.0 is just the right book at just the right time . . . This is a must-read for anyone interested in the future of space exploration and development in the 21st century, and gives excellent suggestions about how you can get involved in Space 2.0. " --Daniel J. Rasky, PhD, chief of the Space Portal Office and senior scientist/engineer at the NASA Ames Research Center "As Elon Musk celebrates more than 50 successful launches and a plethora of successful landings of his Falcon rockets and as Jeff Bezos achieves the ninth successful launch and landing of his New Shepard rocket, the space game is about to change. Rapidly. Your indispensable guide to the new space race is Rod Pyle's Space 2.0. " --Howard Bloom, author of The Lucifer Principle and Global Brain”
