When will we establish the first lunar colony? Who owns the wealth of valuable minerals in the solar system? Can we transform Mars into a planet suitable for humans, with a breathable atmosphere and abundant planet life? How can we develop rocket motors that will take us to the newly discovered planetary systems around other stars?
Rapid technological progress has moved these questions from the realm of science fiction toward tomorrow's reality, as scientists, engineers, astronauts, and visionaries discover ever more about the amazing cosmos in which our Earth floats like a mote of dust. During the next decades, we may travel among the host of objects that orbit the sun, probing the mysteries of the red planet Mars and descending beneath the icy crust of Jupiter's moon Europa, where a world-wide ocean, possibly teeming with unknown forms of life, lies hiden in darkness. Join prominent astronomy author Donald Goldsmith on his "Voyage to the Milky Way" to learn the latest discoveries about Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn -and to sail onward into the dephts of space.
