This is Part 4 of a six-part response to Visions, Ventures, and Escape Velocities: A Collection of Space Futures, which is available for free from Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination thanks to a grant from NASA. I say “response” and not “review” because I intend to engage with the ideas presented from my own point of view.
Section IV of VVEV is entitled Exoplanets, and contains one short story and two essays:
- Shikasta, by Vandana Singh
- The New Science of Astrobiology, by Sara Imari Walker
- Negotiating the Values of Space Exploration, by Emma Frow
