Some time within the next two centuries, humankind will embark on a momentous voyage that will take us out of our solar system and to the stars.

The Giant Leap explains why it will happen, how it might happen, and why it is a good idea.

Adrian Berry, dubbed "the Dean of English science writers," extrapolates from his wide knowledge to inquire into the possibilities of far-space exploration.

Berry writes with lucidity and humor, demonstrating not only a broad spectrum of scientific knowledge but also an intimacy with the works of science fiction writers. His predictions are always rooted in scientific fact.
