Just Reviewed “A New American Space Plan” at SBR

with one comment

Folks, I was able to finally review well-known SF writers (and scientists) Travis Taylor and Stephanie Osborn’s A NEW AMERICAN SPACE PLAN over at Shiny Book Review (SBR) this evening.  This is a review you want to read, especially if you love space, space exploration, or the science that goes along with “science fiction.”  (We have to get our ideas from somewhere.  And a non-fiction book like this is a precious resource.)

Anyway — the science is sound, the arguments for why the United States still needs a space program (much less that it be fully funded and that its mission stay the same regardless of which President occupies the Oval Office) are first-rate, and the style is easy to read for the intelligent layman ninety-nine percent of the time.

So please.  Do yourself a favor.  Go read my review, then go grab the book!  You will not be disappointed, as the arguments put forth are thought-provoking and interesting.

(Further reviewer sayeth not.)
