Very interesting book on the state of the starship now and in the potential future. ( )
  jerhogan | Dec 29, 2014 |
Starship Century is a collection of science and science fiction focused on both what it would take to reach the stars and what it might be to journey on such voyages. It's writers include all-stars in both the and science fiction community. The articles are well thought out explorations of technologies, ranging from what we could achieve within decades, to more exotic technologies that, if possible, are potentially much further in our future. Most of the science discussed here is not new though; I have seen most of it in other online articles and magazines. The science fiction stories included between the non-fiction portions of the book expand on the ideas and put a human perspective on the concepts. Overall this is an inspiring collection that should make you walk out at night and long to reach for the stars.

All proceeds from this book go towards interstellar exploration research. More information can be found online at http://www.starshipcentury.com/ and http://2014.symposium.100yss.org/ ( )
