How adventurous are you? This exciting book takes us beyond our comfort zone and examines what it might be like to live a lifetime in space. This forward-looking book takes readers from current technology to what innovations in technology are being pursued to support living for years beyond Earth. Amazing artwork illustrates the scientific possibilities of living on the Moon, Mars, or Venus, transportation systems for "sleeper" passengers, rotating megastructures to simulate gravity, and even modifying humans to suit space environments.
