Fragile Space

Hot off the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) press, I just ordered a copy of Space: The Fragile Frontier, a new book by space technology consultant, physicist and engineer Mark Williamson.

According to AIAA's
press release, this "is the first book to draw together the recognized issues of Earth orbital debris and planetary protection, set them in the context of space law and ethical policies, and encourages a balance between desirable expansion into space and protection of the space environment. By analogy with terrestrial environmentalism, it calls for a sustainable approach to space exploration and development."

Sounds interesting; I'm looking forward to it. And if you've read Mark's book and would like to guest review or share thoughts on it here on SLP, let me know.
