From: Giulio Prisco
My new book "Futurist spaceflight meditations" is available for
readers to buy on Amazon (Kindle | paperback).
This book goes from here and now to the far future and the stars. But
it is a very short book of about 27,000 words, about 100 pages in
Chapter titles: 1 Introduction; 2 Political preamble; 3 Lockdown; 4
Spaceflight now; 5 Spaceship Earth; 6 Cultural reflections; 7
Interplanetary; 8 Interstellar; 9 Cosmic engineers.
Thesis: We must strenuously push toward our cosmic destiny among the
stars. Beginning to expand beyond the Earth before itís too late is
our most important task at this moment in history. Many actors have
important roles to play, and thereís room for everyone. Spaceflight
will also help find viable solutions for current developmental,
environmental, and social problems.
But the road to the stars is full of impediments and roadblocks. We
will not advance as fast as we wish. Therefore we must keep our mood
strenuous and our drive strong. We need an optimistic spaceflight
culture oriented to the future, with energizing visions of
interplanetary, interstellar, and cosmic futures. We also need a
futurist space philosophy.
I'll present the book at the Space Renaissance 2021 Congress on June
29 and the 2021 Terasem Space Day on July 20.
