THE NEXT 40 YEARS IN SPACE THOMASO. PAINE 2401 Colorado Avenue, No. 178, Santa Monica, CA 90404, U.S.A. Abstraet--I believe that our response to the challenge of space will determine the destiny of mankind. Confined to Earth, our descendants are doomed to zero-sum struggle for dwindling resources. But this evolutionary dead-end need not be our fate. We can open an unlimited future for humanity through a promethean endeavor to extend life beyond Earth. This paper reviews planned robotic exploration of each body in the Solar System, and provides an overview of NASA's initial strategy for exploring Mars via orbiting spaceports and lunar bases. Whether we become a multi-planet species with unlimited horizons, or are forever confined to Earth, will be decided in the 21st Century amid the vast plains, rugged canyons, and lofty mountains of Mars.


As NASA sets its sights on Mars via orbiting spaceports and the Moon, European and Asian space agencies are moving toward piloted spaceflight, and Soviet leaders are calling for increased cooperation in space exploration. With military confrontation among major powers declining, economies burgeoning around the world, and astronautical proficiency rising, the next 40 years should see a global surge of investment on the space frontier. This should spur advances in international institutions, including the evolution of a 21st Century Space Federation to promote and coordinate pioneering societies beyond Earth. Some may question whether now is the time to invest in space exploration. Should we not first solve our problems on Earth? If that had been Spain's policy, Columbus would never have left harbor; if that had been colonial America's policy, the western border of the United States would be anchored in the suburbs of Boston. Resource-rich lands and abundant solar energy throughout the Inner Solar System challenge us to open the space frontier. We have the needed technology, resources, and pioneering spirit. America has declared its intention, in partnership with other nations, to begin the exploration and settlement of the Moon and Mars. The next 40 years will see people working and living on three worlds, as the expansion of life beyond Earth's biosphere becomes technically feasible, affordable, and a universally advocated human drive.


Thirty-two years ago, Sputnik thundered into orbit, opening the Space Age. Twenty-eight years ago, Yuri Gagarin's dramatic flight initiated human spaceflight. Twenty years ago, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins voyaged 400,000 km from Earth to pioneer human exploration of other worlds.

Apollo astronauts sent back close-up views of rugged lunar peaks and craters, and far-out views of our breath-takingly beautiful blue planet. During eleven Apollo flights, nine spacecraft circled the Moon, and a dozen astronauts landed to establish six base camps and explore the ancient surface. Their footprints and jeep tracks record humanity's first steps of evolution into the cosmos. The past 32 years have seen many other great technological and astronautical achievements, as we have: • developed new rocket propulsion systems, from solid propellants and liquid hydrogen/ oxygen to nuclear fission and solar electric drives; • launched payloads from a few kilograms to more than a hundred tons into space from every major continent and the Moon; • flown the U.S. Shuttle and U.S.S.R. Energia/Buran reusable space transportation systems; • created deep-space communication links capable of transmitting and receiving data from spacecraft beyond the edge of the Solar System; • discovered and mapped the fields and particles of interplanetary space; • carried out international spaceflights, such as the precedent-setting Apollo-Soyuz, the Comet Halley armada, and the International Ultraviolet Explorer; • conducted a broad range of manned scientific experiments during shuttle missions and longduration flight aboard the Skylab, Salyut and Mir Space Stations; • obtained substantial economic value from global weather, communications, rescue, navigation, marine, and Earth observation satellite systems; • increased international security through spacebased verification of arms control treaties;



• explored the cosmos across the electromagnetic spectrum from orbital astronomical observatories above the Earth's obscurring atmosphere: and • launched robotic spacecraft throughout the Solar System that have landed on three other worlds, reconnoitered every planetary system but Pluto, and are now sailing into interstellar space. These accomplishments provide the advanced space technology base, seasoned institutions, and skilled spaceflight teams, to achieve far more challenging goals in the next 40 years. 3. PROJECTED ROBOTIC MISSIONS

The new decade begins auspiciously next year with initial operation of the shuttle-tended Hubble Space Telescope, Magellan charting Venus from orbit, Galileo flying by Venus and the Earth/Moon system en route to Jupiter, the Astro-I Spacelab Mission, and launch of the F.R.G. Roentgen Satellite, NASA's Gamma Ray Observatory, and the Ulysses spacecraft to fly above the ecliptic over the Sun's polar region. Orbital observatories ESA's Infrared Space Observatory will be launched in 1993. This will supplement NASA's four great orbital observatories: the Gamma Ray Observatory (GRO), the Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF), the Advanced X-Ray Astrophysics Facility (AXAF), and the Hubble Space Telescope. Together. these facilities will provide new information on the nature of the universe across the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The critical wave lengths between 100 and 1200 ~, which fall between X-ray and optical observatories, will be covered by a Far Ultaviolet Spectroscopy Explorer. All of these facilities involve international cooperation. In addition, NASA and the F.R.G. plan to fly a 2.5-3 m i.r. telescope on board a Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) built into a Boeing 747; this airborne observatory will be capable of more than a hundred missions a year in the mid-90s. Three Soviet facilities will also be contributing vital astronomical data from orbit: the Kvant Astrophysical Laboratory on-board Space Station Mir, the Gamma-I Mission (in collaboration with France), and the planned Kvant X-Gamma Mission. The next 40 years will see continuing advances in orbital observatories, including astrometry (building on ESA's Hipparcos and Tycho), large-aperture multi-mirror instruments, long baseline interferometry, and new approaches to detecting planets circling neighbouring stars. A major challenge is to create instruments capable of locating biospheres beyond the Solar System by sensing the presence of water and excess oxygen on distant worlds. JPL's Circumstellar Imaging Telescope (CIT), proposed for launch about

1999, would represent a significant step toward this goal, as would a 21st Century high-resolution i,~ telescope on the Moon. Advances in high-sensitivity microwave detectors and supercomputer signal analysis will intensify the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Solar System exploration New exploratory missions al~c scheduled or in prospect to asteroids, comets and every planct~ Reconnaissance of the inner and outer Solar System will feature fly-bys, orbiters, optical and radar sensing, atmosphere probes, balloons, penetrators, landers, rovers, and sample-return missions. A fleet of smart robotic probes to the Moon, Mars, and accessible asteroids, will blaze the trail l\~r human exploration. Planetary research will be accelerated by technology advances such as solar and nuclear electric propulsion, rovers powered by I 30 kW nuclear generators, artificial intelligence, "brilliant'" autonomous microspacecraft, microwave power transmission, new sensors, laser data storage and communication, aerobraking, electromagnetic launch, and tether operations. Comets and asteroids will receive increased attention, as these small, primitive bodies encapsulate the history of the Solar System's birth. A brief overview of projected automated missions throughout the Solar System, and their approximate timing, follows. The Slcn

The European Space Research & Technology Center at Noordwijk is rebuilding the Ulysses solar polar mission team. This pioneering flight out of the plane of the ecliptic, originally scheduled for 1983, should shed new light on the structure and energy processes of our nearest star. Additional data will come from instruments on-board the proposed Orbiting Solar Laboratory in sun-synchronous orbit, and a future Solar Probe flying within 3 solar radii. Earth-based instrumentation, like underground neutrino detectors, will also contribute to a broader understanding of our life-sustaining Sun. Mercurl Despite the harsh thermal environment, t~ launch of two spacecraft to Mercury by 1997 is being studied. This would require gravity assists from 2 Venus and 2 or 3 Mercury swing-bys, after which the twin spacecraft would be injected into complementary elliptical orbits about 2002 for Hermean planetology and magnetospheric research. The solar neutron flux would also be monitored. The Soviet Institute for Space Research (IKI) is tentatively planning landers or penetrators after 2002 that would provide panoramic TV imaging and geochemical analyses of Mercury's rugged surface~

The next 40 years in space Venus NASA-JPL's Galileo and Magellan spacecraft will both encounter Venus next year. Galileo, a joint mission of JPL and the German Ministry for Research and Technology, will swing by the planet in February 1990, en route to Jupiter. It will scan Venus for deep cloud patterns and lightning with i.r., u.v. and radio sensors. The Magellan spacecraft, which was launched by the Shuttle Atlantis on 4 May 1989, will use high-resolution radar to map the cloudshrouded surface. On arrival on 10 August 1990, the spacecraft will drop into orbit and begin charting Venerian topography. Soviet scientists are studying a 1998 landing mission to study geochemistry with six to eight 50 kg penetrators. Asteroids Radar signals from earth have probed 33 mainbelt and 20 near-Earth asteroids. All future missions beyond Mars will attempt asteroid encounters. Galileo will fly by Gaspra in October 1991, and Ida in August 1993. The ESA-France-USSR Vesta mission to be launched in 1996 will probe 8 asteroid and comet targets. In January 1998, NASA's first Mariner Mark II spacecraft en route Comet Kopff is scheduled to fly within 3770 km of Asteroid 449 Hamburga. This Comet Rendezvous Asteroid Fly-by (CRAF) mission is awaiting congressional approval. NASA's second Mariner Mark II spacecraft, on the Cassini mission to Saturn, is scheduled by fly by Maja in 1997. These spacecraft will characterize the asteroids with remotesensing optical, dust, gas, plasma, and radio-science experiments. Another 24 asteroids which can be reached from Earth with low spacecraft velocity increments are under study for future rendezvous and sample-return missions. 21st Century human explorers will follow up these missions by prospecting nearby asteroids. Jupiter The Galileo spacecraft, probably the most complex spacecraft ever flown, will scan Venus, Earth, and the far side of the Moon, next year as it swings through the Inner Solar System to gain acceleration for a 6-year voyage to Jupiter. NASA substituted an arduous Venus-Earth-Earth Gravity-Assist (VEEGA) trek around the inner planets for the original 2½-year direct flight to Jupiter when the high-energy Centaur stage was banned from the Shuttle after the Challenger accident. The new trajectory takes Galileo closer to the Sun than originally contemplated, doubling the thermal stress on its systems. On arrival at Jupiter in December 1995, Galileo will deploy its atmosphere probe, perform atmospheric analyses, measure the giant magnetosphere and radiation belts, and begin a 20-month grand tour of the diverse Jovian moons for high-definition mapping and surface composition measurements.

Galileo will transmit data to Earth from Jupiter at a rate of 134kbps, and attain 20 to 1000 times the resolution obtained by the Voyager spacecraft. Galileo's photos at Jupiter will equal the definition of Landsat pictures of Earth. Saturn In April 1996, the second Mariner Mark II spacecraft is scheduled for launch on the Joint NASA/ESA Cassini mission. After a 6½year voyage the spacecraft will brake into the Saturn orbit in March 2003. During the first of 40 Titan fly-bys, ESA's 178 kg Huygens Titan prob e will be deployed to enter the moon's hazy nitrogen-methane--hydrogen atmosphere and parachute eight instruments on a 2-3 h descent to the surface. From 2002 to 2007 Cassini will cruise through the Saturnian system, exploring the magnetosphere, the spectacular ring structure, icy moons and organic-rich Titan. Uranus and Neptune A wealth of information from the Voyager fly-bys is raising fascinating questions about these planets and their rings, atmospheres, energy sources, magnetospheres and moons. Future orbiter missions are in prospect when nuclear electric propulsion becomes available. Triton will then be a primary target for orbiters, atmosphere probes, landers and penetrators. Pluto Several alternative missions are being considered to our Solar System's last unexplored planet. One would use a deep Jupiter gravity-assist to deliver a Pioneer 10/11-class orbiter after a 14 to 20-year flight; another (The "Fire and Ice" Mission) would swing by Jupiter and the Sun. A third approach proposes a threeyear, nuclear-electric-propelled, fly-by of Pluto and Charon as part of a deep interstellar space mission. Critical observations for comparative planetology include Pluto's and Charon's surface morphologies, interior structures, magnetospheres, evolutionary, chronology and atmospheric chemistry and dynamics. Comets The Giotto spacecraft, now parked in a heliocentric orbit following its successful Halley encounter, may be reactivated and retargeted by ESA to reach Comet P/Grigg-Skjellerup in July 1992. In addition, NASA has worked out trajectories for a new probe to fly to Comet Honda-MrkosPajdusakova in 1996. Beyond this, the ESA-NASA Rosetta mission is designed to return a refrigerated comet nucleus sample to Earth. This is the planetary cornerstone of ESA's Horizon 2000 long-range plan; other targets are also being considered for this extended mission. Pristine material data back to the time the Sun was born would be of enormous value to both planetary scientists and astrophysicists.



NASA's Comet Rendezvous and Asteroid Fly-by (CRAF) mission, planned for launch in 1995 or 1996, will send the first Mariner Mark II spacecraft to rendezvous with the short-period Comet Kopff just inside the orbit of Jupiter in 2000 or 2001. While the comet is monitored from a distance of 20 5000 km during a 3-year swing around the Sun, a penetrator with 5 instruments will be deployed. The Kopff encounter wilt continue through the comet's perihelion at 1.58 AU in December 2002. Nine days later the spacecraft will fly out through the comet's plasma tail to a distance of 50,000 km: the mission will then end on 31 March 2003. A JapaneseAmerican spacecraft is also under discussion that would intercept comet Kopff during the CRAF mission in November 2002, pick up a sample, and return i~ to Earth orbit. Interstellar space beyond tile Heliopause

Pioneer and Voyager will be the first spacecraft to fly into interstellar space. JPL scientists have conceptually designed a 5000 kg probe for a voyage outside the Solar System using nuclear--vlectric ion propulsion and laser communication to Earth orbit. This Thousand Astronomical Unit (TAU) mission would cruise beyond Pluto for 50 years, flying into the Oort Cloud of comets, and outside the Heliopause. This bold mission would explore a new region of space, and give astronomers a unique extended baseline for more precise measurements of stellar distances within our galaxy and the Magellanic clouds. Earth

The International Space Year (ISY) of 1992 will honor Columbus's 500th anniversary with "'Mission to Planet Earth". including the U S . France ocean topography Topex/Poseidon mission, and the NASA E S A Japan Earth Observing System (EOS), proposed for the mid-1990s. Other programs include ESA's European Polar Orbiting Platform, Japan's Marine Observation Satellite-2, weather satellites, Spot, Landsat, and the Japanese JERS-1 and MOS-I. The data contributed to the ISY by remote sensing systems will be supplemented by human observations from the Shuttle, Buran and Mir In December 1990, and December 1992. Galileo is scheduled to fly by' Earth en route Jupiter on a VEEGA trajectory that mayr permit imaging of the Earth's Antarctic ozone hole and composition mapping of the far side of the Moon. JPL is proposing to launch two polar platforms with 16 sensing instruments in 1996 and 1998. and Explorer-class missions are in prospect. The next 40 years should see increasing monitoring from orbit of the Earth's biosphere. Phenomena to be studied include acid rain, ozone depletion, carbon dioxide build-up, global warming, glacier and polar ice pack retreat, E1 Nitro and other ocean currents, air and water pollution, deforestation, desertiflcation, insect infestation, crop disease, land erosion, urban

sprawl, and every other global change factor visible from space. More powerful application satellites are in prospect to provide new global services, such as TV distribution (Intelsat and Moskva-Globalnaya types), direct TV broadcast from orbit, mobile communications, low-cost navigation, and other applications. Expendable comsats will be supplemented b} large teleoperated, man-tended, multi-use platforms in geostationary orbit with high power, precision pointing, redundant systems, and reprogrammable software.

The Moon

Japan's National Space Development Agency ~s considering the launch of an H-2 vehicle in 1996 to place a Lunar Polar Observer into orbit around the Moon. This would pave the way for a 500 kg, sixwheel, two-manipulator surface rover about the year 2000. followed by a later automated sample-return mission. NASA is planning to assemble a 1997 Lunar Observer from back-up equipment and spare parts fi'om its 1992 Mars Observer. After several months in a 7-h elliptical polar orbit for gravity studies, Lunar Observer will be placed in a 100 km circular orbit to map and prospect the entire Moon in 12 months. Lunar Observer will search for frozen volatiles in sunless craters near the poles as part of a generai study of lunar geochemistry, elemental and mineralogical composition, topography, and gravity and magnetic fields. The emphasis will be on future site selection for human exploration.


In 1992 NASA will launch the Mars Observer spacecraft to monitor the Red Ptanet's atmosphere, surface topography and resources for an entire Martian year (two Earth-years) Observations wilt be carried out from a nearly circular, sun-synchronous. 350-400km altitude, polar orbit. Mars Observer will also provide communication relay and location support for the two Soviet Mars-94 spacecraft to be launched in October 1994. These will deploy penetrator:,, or surface stations o~ arrival at Mars in September 1995 and launch French thermal gas balloons with TV gondolas and surface-contacting "'snakes." The ESA is studying future Mars orbiters, landers, rovers, and a network of small surface stations. A Soviet Phobos sample-return mission is under consideration for 1996. Planning is also under way' in the U.S. and U.S.S.R. for 1996 Mars penetrators, weather stations and rovers, and Rover SampleReturn (MRSR) missions about 2001. These costly Martian enterprises are prime candidates tk)r international collaboration, which would blaze a trail for multinational piloted missions to Mars about 2015

The next 40 years in space 4. T H E C O M I N G EXTRATERRESTRIAL CENTURY

In 1984, the U.S. Congress created the National Commission on Space to recommend a 20-year civilian space program. The Commission's final report, Pioneering the Space Frontier, proposed to the President and the Congress that America "lead the exploration and development of the space frontier, advancing science, technology and enterprise, and building institutions and systems that make accessible vast new resources and support human settlements beyond Earth orbit, from the highlands of the Moon to the plains of Mars". The acclaim that greeted this award-winning report made it clear that men and women of many nations would enthusiastically contribute to, and participate in, this inspirational endeavor. Five program elements were identified as critical for the future: (1) a highway to space to provide reliable, lowcost access to Earth orbit for passengers and cargo; (2) orbital spaceports circling the Earth, the Moon and Mars, to support spacecraft assembly, storage, repair, maintenance, refueling, check-out, launch and recovery of robotic and piloted spacecraft; (3) a bridge between worlds to transport cargo and crews to the Moon, and to extend human spaceflight a thousand times the lunar distance to Mars, with cycling spaceships in permanent orbits between Earth and Mars; (4) prospecting and resource utilization systems to map and characterize the resources of planets, moons and asteroids, and learn how to "live off the land" using indigenous materials on other worlds; and (5) closed-ecology biospheres that enable pioneers to grow food and recycle air and water within secure habitats remote from Earth. Each of these five elements is challenging, and each requires technological advances across a broad front. Yet we know far more today about voyaging through space to establish a network of evolutionary outposts on other worlds than we knew about landing on the Moon when President Kennedy initiated the U.S. Apollo Program in 1961. We also have far greater astronautic experience, a broader base of international cooperation, and a larger gross world product. On the 20th anniversary of Apollo l l's lunar landing, President Bush delivered a historic address at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Standing before the 1903 Wright Brothers Flyer, Lindbergh's 1927 Spirit of Saint Louis, and the 1969 Apollo 11 Spaceship Columbia, he directed NASA to proceed with an orbital base, to prepare plans to establish permanent bases on the Moon, and to begin the exploration of Mars. Thus, Columbus's 500th anniversary will see the new world he discovered

preparing to set sail to other new worlds across the endless ocean of space. 5. RETURN T O T H E M O O N : 2004

Although Apollo demonstrated the feasibility of expendable spacecraft for flights to the Moon, NASA's Martian goal suggests using prototype cycling spaceships on the Earth-Moon run to gain operational experience. These large passenger transports would swing by Earth and the Moon in perpetual return orbits, with high-speed space taxis to ferry people from Spaceport Earth and Spaceport Moon to the cycling spaceships. These well-equipped spaceships would give scientists valuable research platforms for interferometry and other deep space experiments, and allow engineers to check out ferry operation, artificial gravity chambers, and closed-ecology biospheres illuminated 24 h daily. During solar flares and passages through the Van Allan Radiation Belts, lunar travellers would be protected by the massive shielding that will be mandatory aboard the cycling spaceships on the Mars run. Tentative NASA plans call for staffing the first lunar outpost with a crew of 4-6 people on 6-month tours of duty. Before they arrive, their habitats and workshops will be roboticaUy deployed, activated, and checked-out from Earth. An extended base would then be constructed on the Moon about 2008 to accommodate 8 people for 1-year tours of duty. From the first landing, science and exploration activities will accompany facility extension. By 2010 a crew of 12 will be enlarging the facilities, utilizing lunar resources to the extent practicable. Oxygen extracted from lunar rocks, for example, will provide atmosphere and propellant. An alternate plan involves an initial "Lunar Oasis" populated by 30 people with 3 year tours of duty. A 1 MW solar or nuclear electric plant would support lunar construction, research operations, and high-intensity agriculture for food production and air and water recycling. With NASA's sights set ultimately on Mars, all Lunar base prototype systems should be specifically designed for adaptability to Martian conditions. Multidisciplinary international laboratories and workshops should be functioning by 2015, and broad-spectrum astronomical observatories operating on the near and far sides of the Moon. The entire Moon should then be accessible through surface or ballistic transport, and the base designs and robotic construction techniques proven in lunar prototypes will start operating on Mars. 6. THE EXPLORATION AND SETTLEMENT OF MARS: 2015

Mars is a thousand times farther away than the Moon, and will therefore require a high degree of autonomous operation utilizing indigenous



resources. Modular space transfer vehicles with hydrogen-oxygen engines and aerobraking shields are being developed for Earth-Mars cargo and passenger flights. Lower-cost cargo transport is in prospect using low-thrust, high-specific-impulse solar or nuclear-electric propulsion systems. Large cycling spaceships swinging permanently between the orbits of Earth and Mars appear promising for interplanetary passenger transport in the 21st Century. Aerobraking transfer vehicles would ferry passengers between the cyclers and Spaceport Earth at one end of the voyage, and Spaceport Mars at the other, eliminating the need to accelerate and decelerate the massive transports. President Bush's farsighted goal of Mars exploration gives NASA the rationale to develop the technology base and infrastructure for interplanetary transport systems, and facilitates planning for international collaboration in the settlement of Mars. The next 40 years will see the development of the broad technology base, transportation infrastructure, and network of self-sustaining bases beyond Earth orbit that will permit men and women to live and work on the space frontier. Bases will require solar or nuclear-electric generators in the I to 10 MW range, automated plants to process indigenous materials, robotic construction machinery, fabrication plants (with software links to twin factories on Earth), base maintenance shops, and transportation support facilities. With Mars so far from Earth in distance and travel time, air and water must be recycled, and nourishing food produced, within automated, closed-cycle lifesupport systems. Air and water have been successfully regenerated in prototype systems, and the problems are reasonably well understood. Little is known, however, about constructing artificial biospheres that can be depended upon to supply food and fiber on other worlds. The Earth's solar-powered biosphere is 24,000 miles in circumference and, except for occasional ice ages and meteorite impacts, has operated reliably for four billion years. Now we must learn how to compress our complex food chain into compact recycling conservatories capable of operating unfailingly aboard spaceships and at Lunar and Martian bases. Fortunately, rapid progress in the biological sciences and genetic engineering provides a host of new techniques to help develop reliable closed-ecology systems. Arid areas of Earth, like the American Southwest. the Middle East. Central Asia, and the interior of Australia, could benefit from space biosphere research. Where water is insufficient to support irrigation, a breakthrough in intensive closed-ecology agriculture could have a major impact. This is but one of the many potential benefits to be derived from space research. As Europeans gained from economic and social developments in the Americas. so will Earthlings benefit from human expansion into space.

7. CONCLUSION President Bush has challenged NASA to accomplish one of humanity's most exalted goals: the creation of a self-sufficient civilization "living off the land" on Mars. This great endeavor will attract international partners, encourage world peace, stimulate advances in science and engineering, generate broad economic benefits, inspire young people, and give our descendants a magnificant legacy of expanding horizons, Mars alone will double the land area available to humanity. All of the peoples of Earth should participate in the expansion of humanity to other worlds, but the industrialized nations must lead the way. With America's magnificent heritage from Columbus, our pioneering tradition, our population's multinational origins, our dynamic science and engineering, and our exponentially-growing five trillion dollar econom},, i~ is appropriate that the United States should make a leading contribution. Earthlings working together to open the Lunar and Martian frontiers will need to organize an advanced Space Federation to encourage and integrate the national efforts of America, Europe. Japan, the Soviet Union, and other countries, This 21st Century institution will build upon past international space organizations like IAF, ESA, lntelsat, Apollo Soyuz, and ISY. Like all federations, its goal will be to make our total global effort greater than the sum ,,l" its national parts. Eventually, the Space Federation will evolve into an extraterrestrial government, as Lunarians and Martians assume responsibility for their own destinies. Twenty years ago we watched the first men explore the Moon: among our children today are the first Martians. Supported by scientific advances and engineering breakthroughs. 21st Century space pioneers will be limited on13, bv their aspirations, resolution and courage, In at~other century, lhe human drive to project intelligent life beyond Earth will carry our descendants to the slars.


Selected Visions q/ Man's Futur~ in Space: 1609 1989

Exponential growth m science and technology, and rapidly developing spaceflight experience, foreshadow widespread interplanetary travel in the 21st Century. By expanding life outward from its earthly cradle, human intelligence is activating the next phase in evolution. As piloted and robotic explorers sail further into the limitless ocean of space, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence is being extended far beyond Venus, Mars and the Moon, to Earthlike planets circling distant stars. The selected references that follow record humanity's expanding awareness of the vastness of the universe around us, our evolvingvision of the prospect of spaceflight to other worlds, and the steady improvement in our engineering capabilities. The works are listed chronologically, and arbitrarily divided into twelve periods that reflect our increasingly realistic extraterrestrial aspirations based upo~l our steady progress in astronautical proficiency:
