Abstract:

Space exploration and off-world commercial activity engage the attention of skeptics as well as enthusiasts. What does seem clear, however, is that such activity has increased and is set to expand further--and dramatically so--during the present century. This book explores some of the ethical issues of the emerging space frontier and evaluates the prospects for the medium-range future: Can terraforming of other worlds succeed? Would it be defensible? Should there be limits to mining in space? Do lifeless planets have an integrity that ought to be respected? Could indigenous microbacteria have.
