One prediction O'Neill got right is pollution free vehicles and the airship putting in a re-appearance .
However its not totally carefree as he mentions nuclear terrorism , something we have so far mercifully avoided to date.
In short this a good book written by a brilliant man who although he died in the early 90s still lives on in works such as this.

If a Princeton physicist such as Prof. O'Neill writes that these are valuable resources then I would say most people should carefully review these concepts. The terrestrial goals and pathways towards a hopeful year 2081 are still feasible. The publication date makes this book seem antiquated but O'Neill's concepts and vision are still far from common knowledge. If Prof. O'Neill builds a hopeful vision for 2081 will the people come and work for it?
