More awareness about Interstellar travel has been added in this new edition of Philip Duke's book. I read the first edition and it was inspiring to those NASA hopefuls yet to come. Primarily focused on Einstein theory the first book gets into the science and logistics of getting to a new earth and how to survive both the journey and the destination. Keeping up to date and adding to this thesis of space flight Duke now explains "warp time" and gives credible examples with current referenced data. Dr. Pares has a working "warp" device elucidating this new concept which when added to Einstein's theory makes it seem we can really make it to another galaxy and inhabitable planet and not exhaust human lifespan years. This is a book, like his first Interstellar thesis, that is a student stimulus to aspire to careers in astrophysics, NASA enrollment, and maintain our space initiative. It would not surprise me if Philip Duke continues to update his Interstellar series as new knowledge and science develops.
Dr. Duke lays out the possibilities of space travel in a layman term way. He uses historical examples to base his logical projections on. The most impressive take away is the hopeful tone the book sounds. The future can and will look differently and we will derive massive benefits from it.
As all of the books of Philip Duke's that I have read, I found this quite interesting. He often times has a somewhat different perspective on things. I found this entertaining and thought-provoking. In other words, I enjoyed the read.
