This book was born out of a desire to contribute to the debate in “Space circles” as to wherehumans head to next in the quest to conquer and explore space frontiers, hoping to reach the far reaches of the universe some day. Naturally, I am indebted to whatever sources I drew mymaterials during the writing of this work.Special thanks are due to the National Geographic edition of January 1980 that opened my eyesto the Voyager “twin space travellers” as well as William Sheehan for his classic book, “Worldsin the sky” (1992). These two documents as well as other internet sites really enriched myappreciation and comprehension of the world beyond our planet.I would also like to salute the 1992 Rio Earth summit with its declarations. That was a land mark meeting with powerful resolutions whose token fruit and effect we are beginning to see now.
