FUTURE SPACE is a new series that shows how humans and their robotic partners could leave Planet Earth to explore strange worlds, far stars, and even the outer galaxies. Each book is like a time machine, starting off with ‘the story so far’, then moving through present developments and on into the future, illustrating the plans and the possibilities. Beyond Earth, the first book in the series, brings readers up to date with the progress made by the first space stations, and shows how the ISS is being built and how its astronauts will live, work, carry out experiments, and react to emergencies. It goes beyond the ISS, to the Moon and the planet Mars, and takes a peep into the very distant future, when humans might colonize new worlds in other solar systems.
