Editorial Reviews

Review

"Final Frontier is an enjoyable romp across space and time, from Cyrano de Bergerac to future spacewarp-driven interstellar craft, via Verne, Wells and the possibility of colonising the Solar System.  A timely reminder of what might be possible in the light of current discussions about the commercial exploitation of the Moon and asteroids."

—John Gribbin - author of In Search of Schrödinger’s Cat, Alone in the Universe and In Search of the Multiverse

 

“Readers will enjoy Clegg’s lively, enthusiastic account of the technical barriers to exploring the universe.” —Kirkus Reviews
