Space on Earth by C. Cockell

US$ 24.95
Most environmentalists think going into space detracts from solving problems here on Earth. Most astrophysicists feel environmentalism hampers their exploration and settlement of space. Actually, environmentalism and space exploration have one and the same objective, argues leading astro-biologist Professor Charles S. Cockell: to ensure humanity has a home. Cockell proposes that a fusion of the two movements is the only way forward. The technologies we develop to live sustainably on Earth, such as wind and solar power, will also establish humanity in space. The exploration of space will provide new resources and skills for the protection of the Earth's environment. For example, studying extreme environments on Earth is helping us to look for life on Mars and satellites orbiting Earth are helping track hurricanes and protect people from natural disasters. There are many books on environmentalism and many on space. "Space On Earth" is the first to provide a new vision of humanity's future bringing these two goals together.
