Summary
The urge to explore and discover is a natural and universal one, and the edge of the unknown is expanded with each passing year as scientific advancements inch us closer and closer to the outer reaches of our solar system and the galaxies beyond them. In this collection of galaxy-spanning adventures of discovery and adventure, science fiction writers give readers increasingly new and alien ways to look out into our broad and sprawling universe. From generations ships to warp drives, exploring new worlds to first contacts, they are a reminder that the universe is brimming with possibilities. -- adapted from back cover
Summary
An anthology of previously published science fiction stories explores the vast and mysterious universe in increasingly new and alien ways
