Editorial Reviews


With the public increasingly questioning scientifically-obtained data, books of this nature are not just welcome they're needed. Astronomy Saves the World makes the case that astronomy should be as much a part of what is taught in schools as reading, writing, and math. Life on Earth could end tomorrow courtesy of a rock from space. Conversely, the problems we're facing today, those stemming from overpopulation, dwindling natural resources, and pollution could also be alleviated, if not resolved, thanks to science, space exploration, and by extension astronomy. Batcheldor does an exceptional job of conveying his ideas through this book. --Jason Rhian, Senior Editor/Founder SpaceFlight Insider

About the Author

Daniel Batcheldor grew up in the city of Bath, United Kingdom. He earned a PhD in Astrophysics from the University of Hertfordshire before moving to the United States. At Rochester Institute of Technology he taught university physics and conducted research on supermassive black holes using the Hubble Space Telescope. Since 2010 he has been on the faculty at Florida Institute of Technology where he is now Professor and Head of Physics and Space Sciences. He still conducts research on supermassive black holes, but is now involved with the space-based imaging technologies that could result in the first image of an Earth-like planet around other stars, and the issues associated with establishing a sustainable colony on Mars.
