This lavish volume is a comprehensively illustrated preview of our future in space as well as a review of past successes and failures. Hardy's illustrations show, for instance, how the surface of each planet and its moons were originally imagined by writers when they worked together over 30 years ago and reveals how our knowlege has been vastly improved by data from satellites, probes and telescopes. Hardy and Moore apply their knowledge and imagination to look into the future of space exploration and to create an artist's impression of a world not yet visible.
