Spacefarers: How Humans Will Settle the Moon, Mars, and Beyond

We rated this book:


Have you ever dreamed of seeing other planets? This book is a trustworthy guide to a possible interplanetary future. It explains the pros and cons of different kinds of settlements as well as how humanity could survive on them. It explores in depth living in space stations or on the Moon or Mars. It touches lightly on the subject of asteroid mining and on living on the moons of the outer planets.

The descriptive writing gives in-depth detail about the different possibilities and it is a great space colonization reference book. It is very informative and has high-quality, understandable writing. The author makes it readable. His expert knowledge makes the book a good read. Even someone who is not a rocket scientist can read and explore the complex ideas in the book.

All the concepts are portrayed clearly and even if they seem far-fetched, they are at least semi-viable. It is up to date but does not mention commercial spaceflight. It mentions a lot of modern technology but omits the majority of commercial spaceflight and instead focuses on the technology, not on who does what.

This book is so good I would give it 10 stars if I could!
