Jim, I’m 91 years old and have been a reader of “science fiction” since before the term was invented………….grew up with all the early writers, and was captivated by all the romance, adventure and visions. As I have grown older and become more seriously concerned with what we are doing to our home planet, I find myself wondering if the earth is heading towards the conditions which are evident on Mars today.
One significant problem exceeds all other concerns; OVERPOPULATION. Unless a solution can be found to reverse this mad rush to destruction, the human race will not survive to any of those INFINITE VISIONS.
In 2016, The Planetary Society’s LightSail program will take the technology a step further.
