Description: 

World renown science fiction writer Issac Asimov presents his views on what the future holds for humankind. He explores the potentials of space travel and colonization, a project which could potentially unite the world. Asimov goes on to define problems into two categories: 1) those that effect everyone, and 2) those that effect the individual. Space exploration would address the problems which face everyone, thus providing a unifying issue for humankind. He goes on to outline the steps necessary for developming space travel and colonization, including how to involve the private sector through profitability. He concludes that a necessary development for space exploration is the robot, which can take over the dull, dirty and dangerous jobs and leave humans free to expand.|SPACE AND HUMANITY'S PLACE IN IT : FACT OR FICTION / Issac Asimov| interviewed by Christine Watson. - World renown science fiction writer Issac Asimov presents his views on what the future holds for humankind.
