Zubrin, called "The Tom Paine of Space," uses history and common-sense engineering to present possibilities for exploration and colonization of our solar system and beyond.

The internationally renowned astronautical engineer, whose humans-to-Mars mission plan was recently adapted by NASA, surveys reusable rocketry, ideal locations for initial colonies, mining asteroids, interstellar travel, and contact with other intelligent lifeforms.

"Entering Space as a plan for the human future is unique in being both visionary and tecnically sound. It is a call to adventure and a plan for our future."
--Chris McKay, scientist, NASA Center for Mars Exploration

"Zubrin shows how a flight to Mars has progressed from fantasy to ... a reality that can be achieved by us. Zubrin is showing us the way."
--Buzz Aldrin
