In Beyond, Chris Impey manages to rejuvenate that "Space Is Our Future" feeling that pervaded human culture a half century ago. A needed reminder that, today, not enough of us are looking up, and even fewer among us are doing anything about it.

In Beyond, by far my favorite of his books to date, Chris Impey speaks of an "explorer gene" that has propelled humanity from Africa to the Moon. I suspect Impey of harboring that particular gene himself, given the enthusiasm he brings to this swashbuckling story of the coming human presence in space. Though my own DNA may be lacking, this book prepares me to follow him into the inevitable.

This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the fate of the human race and our bright future among the stars. Chris Impey shows how our efforts to expand beyond Earth are part of the same biological drive that made humans spread their habitat across the face of the Earth.
— Ben Bova, bestselling author and president emeritus of the National Space Society
Impey's spacefaring vision really shines in this captivating tour of our deepest past and distant future. It's a marvelous book to curl up with on a starry night and let your mind roam through the halls of possibility.
— Diane Ackerman, author of The Human Age: The World Shaped by Us
