It’s now been five months since my book The Value of the Moon was published and I am happy to report that it has been well received. Let us hope that more people see the value of lunar return and the development of cislunar space as time goes on.
Here is a very complimentary review post recently published by a blogger named “sagansense”:
I just finished ‘The Value of the Moon’ by geologist/lunar scientist Dr. Paul D. Spudis, and I implore you – yes you – to read this cover to cover, as it illuminates the past 50+ year debacle that is the American space program; notably, the human spaceflight sector, and why the Moon – not Mars – is the logical choice for humankind to gain a foothold to the rest of the solar system.
I couldn’t have put it better myself!
