With all the important things going on in our individual lives, not to mention the 24/7 news cycle—who’s got time to think about what life will be like for our species 500 or even 5,000 years from now? Well, lots of folks actually.

The physicist lays out his vision of man’s future in space, and how that future might be driven by an increasingly hostile Earth in his latest book, The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality and Our Destiny Beyond Earth.
