About this book

Discusses the future of the human race in the Universe, for the centuries, millennia and eons to come. It is not an account of `what will happen', but of `what could happen', in the light of our current knowledge, scientists' speculations, and their philosophical and social implications.

'This book is a delight to read and ! a valuable addition to the scientific literature at a popular level ! a one-of-a-kind book.' Armand Delsemme, Emeritus Professor of Astrophysics, University of Toledo in Ohio, and author of Our Cosmic Origins 'I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Prantzo has presented us with an exciting view of humanity's cosmic venture ! Bravo!' Ben Finney, Professor of Anthropology, University of Hawaii 'How many scientists let free their imagination and tease the muse of writing? Prantzos is without a doubt one of the most promising !' Le Monde 'This is one of the most original books in recent years: a guide to the future in the light of recent advances in astronomy.' Science et Vie '! an excellent overview of humanity's possibilities in space, and it should be enjoyable to anyone with an interest in the topic.' Jeff Minerd, The Futurist 'This a very interesting and informative book.' Peter D. Mata, Spaceflight 'This captivating and unprecedented book is about the future of the human race in the Universe ! artfully displays a gripping preview of Our Cosmic Future.' Europe & Astronomy
