Über dieses Buch

In Space Enterprise - Living and Working Offworld, Dr Philip Harris provides the vision and rationale as to why humanity is leaving its cradle, Earth, to use space resources, as well as pursuing lunar industrialization and establishing offworld settlements. As a management/space psychologist, Dr. Harris presents a behavioral science perspective on space exploration and enterprise. In this his 45th book, Phil has completely revised and updated the two previous editions of this classic, placing new emphasis on the need for more synergy and participation by the private sector. He not only provides a critical review of what is happening in the global space community, but offers specific strategies for lunar economic development. The author analyzes the human factors in contemporary and future space developments, especially relative to the deployment of people aloft. This user-friendly volume offers numerous photographs, diagrams, exhibits, and case studies.

Stimmen zum Buch

From the reviews:

"An excellently referenced compendium of the behavioral and social science issues related to the creation of a spacefaring civilization." ( David Brandt-Erichsen, National Space Society, January 2009)

"Harris discusses the need for a global space ethos, that is, that the fundamental character of global culture needs to embrace the concept of humans living and working beyond the Earth." (Jeff Foust, The Space Review, November 17, 2008)

"Space Enterprise … will be ‘a classic in the global space community, as well as a university textbook, and basis for an educational media project.’ … This book is a combination of future scenarios and the managerial, psychological, medical, legal, and political structures needed to deal with space colonization. … Summing Up: Recommended. General readers and all undergraduates interested in space studies." (A. M. Strauss, Choice, Vol. 46 (8), April, 2009)

“Harris, a behavioural psychologist and futurist, covers a lot of ground in this well-researched volume. … covering everything from learning from current spacefarers through to considerations of team performance, productivity, human/machine interfaces, and ergonomics and ecology. … A number of appendices make up the last part of the book, providing more thought on governance issues, lunar development … and lessons to be learned from today’s space entrepreneurs. … thought-provoking book, and will be of interest to anyone concerned with where humanity is going in space.” (Liftoff, Issue 260, November-December, 2010)
