Fantasizing About Future Space Adventures
Jeffrey Israel

Does news of private entrepreneurs mobilizing missions into
space cause you to feel excitement or anxiety? Does it make you
feel nothing at all? Stop for a moment and imagine: how does it
all unfold?

Will we eventually travel into the farthest reaches of the
galaxy under the benign auspices of something like Star Trek's
United Federation of Planets? Will the universe, instead, be
colonized with brutal and uncompromising imperialism by
something like the Alliance in the short-lived Firefly
television series? Maybe you imagine that corporations will
dominate space, consuming it as a natural resource like the RDA
Corporation in the film Avatar.

If you are anything like me, then you have absolutely no idea
what is genuinely likely. I don't know anything about space,
space travel, or the possibility of extra-terrestrial life. I'm
not even a particularly competent science fiction geek.
