The book deals with the many important issues related to space exploration, using a thoroughly informative language. It includes spectacular satellite images and "conversations" with famous astronauts and industry leaders.
Today, humankind is preoccupied with the balance of the planet. Space exploration, meanwhile, is living a golden age that began in the 1950s and has led to space being experienced like never before. The international space station, countless satellites and the quest to extract minerals from the closest celestial bodies are only a few of the achievements that humankind has clinched or is working towards.
One basic condition, though, must be met for all of this to come to fruition. The environmental sustainability of space enterprises is not only an ethical duty, but also a practical necessity.
