LIVING IN SPACE: How Space Stations Have Blazed the Path to Settling Space with Rod Pyle

Ideas about living in space date back to the 19th century, but it was not until the 1920s that people began to take them seriously. Author Rod Pyle offers an engaging look at how these orbital outposts moved from fanciful notions of science fiction through teams of engineers in to reality. Rod will discuss how they were created, what humanity has learned from living in space, and what to expect in then next 20 years of space exploration.

Rod Pyle is the author of more than 15 books on spaceflight for major publishers and two for NASA. He is the Editor-in-Chief of Ad Astra magazine for the National Space Society. He serves as faculty at the Kepler Space Institute. Rod is a frequent guest on radio and television shows to discuss spaceflight and related topics.
