9780760346662: New Space Frontiers: Venturing into Earth Orbit and Beyond

Take a journey into the New Space Frontier!

It is easy to imagine that the space shuttle's retirement has edged the Space Age toward closure, at least in terms of human flight beyond the bounds of earth. In fact, there are more people-carrying ships being constructed now than at any time since Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space half a century ago. Some are already servicing the International Space Station - which, incidentally, has ensured a permanent human presence in space for the last two decades, and is set to continue and expand for decades yet to come.

What's more, NASA is no longer the only big player in the space game. Commercial, non-governmental space exploration is becoming a reality rather than just a pipe dream. What orbital adventures await us in the next five decades? Will humans ever again head into deep space, as the Apollo astronauts once did? NASA's new hardware is aimed toward asteroid missions, and ultimately, Mars, but there is a significant chance that a government funded space agency will not be the only - or even the first - organization to send humans across the solar system.

Get ready to experience the excitement of adventure with New Space Frontier. Through gorgeous photography and engaging writing, noted space and science author Piers Bizony speculates beyond just today's hardware and explores what might be possible for the next generation.

About the Author:

An experienced multimedia professional, Piers Bizony has written about science and the history of technology for a wide variety of publishers worldwide, and has undertaken major projects for the media departments at NASA and ESA. He has also gained substantial experience within the film and television industries.

The author of Quarto’s Space Shuttle: Celebrating Thirty Years, One Giant Leap: Apollo 11 Remembered, and New Space Frontiers, Bizony spent the last three years working closely with the family of Stanley Kubrick, in conjunction with Warner Bros. and fine art publishers Taschen on a large-format book about the making of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Review:

"After the space shuttle fleet's retirement, some thought America was no longer in the space travel business. This book remedies that misimpression. Artwork and pictures show off spaceships ranging from NASA's Orion to SpaceX's Dragon V2 and XCOR Aerospace's Lynx." - NBCNews.com



"Author and journalist Bizony (The Rivers of Mars; Atom) whisks readers through an exploration of current and near-future technologies that will take humans to the upper atmosphere, into Earth's orbit, to the Moon, and beyond, with a firmly proprivatization stance. This book is gorgeous: full-spread photos, drawings, and renderings sourced from NASA, private companies, and museum collections will enthrall space travel enthusiasts and casual readers alike. VERDICT A beautifully packaged coffee-table book." -- Library Journal



"Piers Bizony provides a comprehensive, prolifically illustrated look at some of the vehicles, missions, and plans for the international exploration and development of space." - Smithsonian Air & Space



"Fascinating volume with exciting artwork. If space is of interest, you will enjoy it." - Professional Pilot



"...this book is a nicely illustrated, if high level, overview of what the future may hold for spaceflight." - The Space Review



'Are the best days of space exploration far behind us, or is humankind on the verge of a whole new era?... Piers Bizony makes a solid case for optimism, and does so in fine style.'



"The latest book by space writer Piers Bizony is a visual feast of gorgeous photos and specially commissioned concept renderings accompanied by Bizony's clear, concise, and surprisingly detailed prose (for such a visually oriented book)." - Mad Science Innovation
