5.0 out of 5 stars Ad Astra Per Aspera, 15 April 2003
Any one who as a child looked up and pondered as to why the sky is blue, or what mysterious force keeps the moon there, will adore this book. As an astrophysicst myself I could read this book again and again. I am of the belief that it should be a recommened text for an Astrophysics course.
Its clear layout and part by part working through propulsive mechanisms both real and fanciful is commendable.
An addictive read although those of you who arent mathematically minded have no fear, the author guides you through the tentative steps like a tutor.
This is a definite must for all budding astrophysicsts and anyone out there who is Captain Kirk at heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ever Wondered if we will ever reach the stars?, 15 April 2003
Marshal T Savage has brought about an amazing literary peice, his grasp of the essential topics for colonising the universe; physics, astrophysics, cryogenics, biochemistry and many more, cannor be doubted.
Many of his ideas in this book are not dream-work, there is no physics or maths "fudging" it is all true to life. Many of his inspirations would not only propell us to the stars but would also benefit us here on terra firma.
Any budding Astrophysicists out there? If yes then make this book a fundamental part of your collection.
