Product Details


“With a light and conversational voice, Alice Gorman delivers piercing insights into the meaning of our various efforts to leave Earth behind, as well as an entertaining primer on how archaeologists work and what they can teach us. This book is a must read for anyone interested in both the past and the future of space exploration.” – Emily Lakdawalla, author of The Design and Engineering of Curiosity: How the Mars Rover Does Its Job

“Alice Gorman‘s unique book is far more than a look at the space debris that is orbiting Earth; rather, this mesmerizing tour of human effects on our planetary space and on neighboring worlds will leave readers with a completely new sense of the solar system. Bravo!” – David J. Eicher, Editor-in-Chief, Astronomy Magazine

“Alice Gorman opens our eyes to the too-recent-to-be-appreciated artifacts of the space age, and points out their import and beauty. From the tens of thousands of macro-size objects orbiting Earth to the landers, rovers and other hardware abandoned on the moon and Mars, Gorman finds poetry and pertinence in the space age. Who knew the archaeology of the future is above our heads?” Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer, Institute Fellow, SETI Institute

“Alice Gorman’s engaging meditation on the significance we give to space artifacts and space exploration challenges us to think about the cultural value of space junk. This book will be of interest not just to space enthusiasts but to all those fascinated by how humans give meaning to objects around them.” – Jonathan McDowell, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
