This New Edition includes six new Chapters by experts in their fields. This book includes a CDROM with a rare 70 minute interview with the author. In the mid-1970's the late physics Professor Gerard K. O'Neill published his book High Frontier. In it he laid out a possible road map for human settlement beyond the Earth. To O'Neill the future was positive and exciting, and his astronauts looked like you and me. He believed in the power of individuals carving out pockets of life in a largely dead Solar System, and he basically told us how to do it. This expanded third edition features a preface by Roger O'Neill, an introduction by Freeman Dyson, and essays by top experts in the field of space research.
