Robert Zubrin’s The Case For Mars (TCM) has been in publication for a couple of decades now, and is a seminal work in the space advocacy genre. Really, it shares space next to weighty volumes like those from Carl Sagan and Gerard K. O’Neill.
It has occurred to me more than once that it would be useful to design an academic course around such books, with TCM as the main reference in this case. So, that’s what I’m going to embark on now. I’ve just picked up the newest edition and will give it as solid an evaluation as I can and start generating course materials.
