Beginning with Sputnik in 1957, the Space Age has enabled nearly 500 human beings to fly beyond Earth's thin atmosphere. The next 50 years will likely see human society establish itself there as well. The generation for whom this book is intended will determine whether that will be a bright moment in human history or not.
