BECOMING THE PEOPLE OF THE STARS
Fundamental transformation. That is what it may take to reach our final destination. And we may not have a choice as dangers from without and pressure from within human civilization force us to adapt to a new star-traveling heritage. We may find that Homo sapiens is on its way to becoming a new and unique species – Homo stellaris: people of the stars.
A BOUNDLESS SENSE OF WHAT’S POSSIBLE
Inspired by a gathering of scientists, science fiction authors, and futurists at a series of annual meetings held by the Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop, here are original science fiction stories and accessible speculative pieces by top scientists that will take you to that future!

Hoyt, plus essays on the science behind the fiction from Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal of the United Kingdom, Mark Shelhamer, Chief Scientist for NASA’s Human Research Program, and more!
