The New Challenge of the Stars
By Patrick Moore and David Hardy. Foreword by Arthur C. Clarke.
“A Science Fact Look at Science Fiction”.
Interstellar Warfare. Asteroid Arks.
Published in 1977, The New Challenge of the Stars sees British astronomer Patrick Moore contemplate the plausibility of space exploration and discovery as depicted in science fiction. Between interstellar warfare, asteroid arks, martian bases and intergalactic hellscapes, this book both verifies and disputes the worlds of H.G. Wells and Star Wars alike. No stone is left unturned in the search for potential life and inhabitability beyond Earth.
With an introduction by Arthur C. Clarke and corresponding illustrations by astronomical artist David Hardy, this volume from the recent past is a blueprint for tomorrow’s reality.
