"Man, medicine and space" is a wide-ranging philosophical and historical exploration of human activity in space written for the interested general reader. It is not an encyclopedia, nor a textbook, but seeks to answer in plain language the question "what on earth is humanity doing in space and why is it doing it?"
As we enter a new millennium many writers and thinkers are asking if humanity's curiosity, science, and technology are really benign forces or if they serve the long-term interests of our species. This book gives, perhaps uniquely, resoundingly positive answers and suggests further that we may have after all discovered through science the true role of humanity in a evolving universe.
In a time of uncertainty and rising superstition this book proposes a destiny for mankind which, unlike previous such programs, can be built by vision, hard work and discipline, and which threatens no others -human or animal.
In summary, it offers a positive future for the long term, which can realize the unlocked creative potential for of our species. It is a supreme humanist affirmation for our times.
