Neil deGrasse Tyson · 9 review free read ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub · Neil deGrasse Tyson Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier review ✓ 109 America’s space program is at a turning point After decades of global primacy NASA has ended the space shuttle program cutting off its access to space No astronauts will be launched in an American craft from American soil until the 2020s and NASA may soon find itself eclipsed by other countries’ space programsWith his signature wit and thought provoking insights Neil deGrasse Tyson one of our foremost thinke. I really struggled with this book I love space and space travel I have lived through and been thrilled by the entire space race and the development of space science I expected to love a book by a great astronomer and science populariser but instead I pretty well had to give up part way throughThere are two problems The lesser one is the structure of the book It consists of a collection of articles interviews and such that Tyson has produced on the subject of space exploration This inevitably means there is repetition A lot of repetition It s not that what he is saying is not interesting but after you ve heard it for the tenth time it loses its novelty Perhaps the most interesting thing is the way Tyson is so obviously pulled in two directions On the one hand he appreciates how superior unmanned satellites and explorers are from a bang per buck science viewpoint On the other hand he believes manned missions are essential to raise interest levels But of course manned missions are very expensive and almost purely politicalmilitary in role so he really does have to go through some entertaining gymnastics to defend themBut the thing that made me give up was the sheer jingoism of the book If you aren t an American I can guarantee this book will irritate you Here s one example the words of an interviewer speaking to Tyson who Tyson doesn t argue with If we land on Mars how are we going to know if USA is number one if an American astronaut is standing next to a French guy Are we going to say Go Earth No we re going to say Go USA Right So basically international cooperation like CERN is a waste of time and money all that s important all that space science is about is knowing that USA is number oneAn even better example as it is purely Tyson s own remarks is when he is talking about the aerospace industry bemoaning the loss of US control He says In the fifties sixties seventies part of the eighties every plane that landed in your city was made in America From Aerolineas Argentinas to Zambian Airways everybody flew Boeings I m sorry I worked for an airline in the 1970s and I can tell you this is total baloney which is apparently American for bilge Remind me for example who built the Comet the first jet airliner Which American company Oh no it was British Of course Boeing was the biggest player in the period he describes but there were plenty of others There were even a couple of other US manufacturers Remember Lockheed Could I just point out also who made the only supersonic airliner flying back then And come to think of it the only one to fly ever since The UK and France And what did the US contribute to this amazing advance They tied it up with red tape and objections so it was almost impossible to fly itThis really made me angry I m afraid In another article Tyson tells off a judge for inaccuracy because he referred to 1700 milligrams rather than 17 grams Okay it wasn t a particularly sensible convention but at least it wasn t wrong Saying all planes were US Boeings is just factual inaccuracy to put across your political position A book on space travel must cover politics but once it is so hugely politically biased towards one country however significant it may have been to the aerospace business it loses credibility This isn t a book about space science it s a rallying cry for Americans That s something that has its place I m not knocking America and it s good that Tyson is proud of his country But a science book isn t the place for such sentiments Review first published on wwwpopularsciencecouk and reproduced with permission Bogart program is at a turning Mao's Great Famine The History Of China's Most Devastating Catastrophe 1958 1962 point After decades of global Wheels of a Soul Reincarnation and Kabbalah primacy NASA has ended the space shuttle Hex Hall programsWith his signature wit and thought Designing Love provoking insights Neil deGrasse Tyson one of our foremost thinke.

Neil deGrasse Tyson · 9 review free read ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub · Neil deGrasse Tyson Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier review ✓ 109 We must regain our enthusiasm and curiosity about what lies beyond our worldProvocative humorous and wonderfully readable Space Chronicles represents the best of Tyson’s recent commentary including a must read prologue on NASA and partisan politics Reflecting on topics that range from scientific literacy to space travel missteps Tyson gives us an urgent clear eyed and ultimately inspiring vision for the future. Space Chronicles is a compilation of essays interviews and even tweets by everyone s favorite astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson They all discuss the history of space travel how it came to be and what can be expected in the future It is divided in three partsPart one Why It talks about why we are so fascinated with space It discusses everything from what the reuirements for life are to the probabilities of been killed by an asteroid which spoiler alert is the same as dying on an airplanePart two How Talks about how space travel became possible It discusses how the technology for space was invented how flying was started and it talks about the evolution from the Space Race era and the Space Shuttle eraPart three Why notNeil Tyson very candidly talks about the lack of progress during the past few decades his disappointment and the reasons behind why there has been no progress And how even other countries see space as a commercial enterprise and no longer look forward to space explorationNeil Tyson initially wanted to name this book Failure to Launch The Dreams and Delusions of Space Enthusiasts which is a way fitting name than Space Chronicles The purpose of this book is to educate people about space and how little progress there has been since NASA s budget nowadays doesn t allow much It is a cry for people to remember how small we are compared to the rest of the universe and we need to do something or we will become extinguished Space Chronicles greatest fault is mainly that it is a bit repetitive since it is a compilation of works and they sometimes overlap But it is very interesting and very important subject that everyone needs to be aware ofIf you are a space enthusiast I would recommend you read this book because it will teach you a bit of spaceAnd if you re not that this is the perfect book for you to start
