The first wave of space exploration in the 20th century all but ground to a halt, the victim of national and ideological rivalries which had spent themselves, and of politicians who gutted funding for special interests and pork barrel spending. But the universe still beckoned, and a generation grew up knowing that there was nothing impossible about space travel, and wondering why we had gone to the Moon-and then stopped cold. New propulsion systems and more efficient reaction drives were developed, making space flight less expensive, taking it away from the exclusive club of government-funded programmes. Humanity moved out once again into the infinite ocean of space, this time to stay. All new stories of the conquest of the solar system by: Charles Sheffield, Gregory Benford, John Ringo, James P: Hogan, Wen Spencer, Margaret Ball, Jack McDevitt, fact &: fiction by space scientist Travis Taylor, and more!
