About The Future of Humanity

The book explores in rich, intimate detail the process by which humanity may gradually move away from the planet and develop a sustainable civilization in outer space. It reveals how cutting-edge developments in robotics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology may allow us to terraform and build habitable cities on Mars. He then takes us beyond the solar system to nearby stars, which may soon be reached by nanoships traveling on laser beams at near the speed of light.
