imaginative and ridiculous, but most of the time genuinely scientific travel guide for those who may find themselves on Mars, or Titan or Enceladus’ South Pole, with a detailed description of local walks, boating (and floating) lakes and flora and fauna species
It is a perfectly cozy book to delve into while relaxing by a fireplace with a glass of something strong, dreaming of beautiful distant worlds. An interesting thought experiment awaits you every turn of the page spiced up with facts and thoughts of a physics expert.
A charming book heart warming and full of wonder and imagination. Thanks
Igor manages to create a fantastic vision of the future, whilst still being grounded in currently known scientific fact.
It is the mark of a great mind to be able to consider not only “what is” but also “what could be”. Igor dishes out page after page of fantastical locations and landscapes (full of grand vistas, and carefully considered details), whilst explaining how a large amount of the visions presented can be explained by our current understanding of Cryogenics. Furthermore, he hypothesises on how the challenges presented could be overcome by modern day (or very near future) technology.
Overall, I found the book to be enjoyable to read, and full of hope for the future of humanity as we begin our journey towards the heavens.
