Adrian Berry, 4th Viscount Camrose, a British hereditary peer, was a journalist and author of several books. In this one he "provokes thought about man's role in the whole cosmos in a totally new way, and his ideas will have lasting relevance. For the sheer scale of its undertaking and for the wealth of astronomical knowledge that lies behind it, 'The Next Ten Thousand Years' opens the reader's mind to the rich possibilities the universe holds for us all." Chapter headings; The New Atlantis; No Limits to Growth; Three Assumptions; The Beckoning Moon; The Lunarians; Venus, the Hell-World; Making it Rain in Hell; The Astronaut's Shrunken Head; Voyage Through a Hidden Universe; The Search for Habitable Worlds; The Vision of John von Neumann; Flying City-States; Building the Giant Sphere; The God of Spinoza; Appendix A: A Do-it-yourself Guide to the Special Theory of Relativity; Appendix II: Dimensions of the Solar System; Appendix III: Aspects of some problems concerned with the Construction of Dyson Spheres, by Iain K.M. Nicolson; Glossary; Bibliography; Notes and References; Index. Review slip pasted on verso of front free endpaper.

Dust jacket has light edge wear, very small area of surface paper loss at top of front hinge, several tiny and small edge tears - archivally taped, very light rubbing, some light edge wrinkling, now protected in a mylar sleeve
