Summary and Preview

As humans expand our territory to beyond Earth, we start encountering new boundaries of physical and psychological limitations. Asteroid Miners is a compilation of short stories that describe these limitations and how it may affect humans. It goes into detail how gravitational fields make traveling in space different from anything on Earth and how we need a new mindset towards ‘moving’ when humans are in space. The idea of distance is also covered where it describes how vacant the universe really is. Asteroid Miners also touches on human psychological behaviors in space. The stress it causes on humans to feel so alone and the repercussions to childhood when growing up entirely in space stations without any nature to relate to.

Humans are already moving towards space and as the last frontier of humans, it is still vastly uncharted and beyond our imagination. Asteroid Miners does a great job portraying humanity in space and the physics behind the adventure. [vyc]

Review by ghostmage
A group of short stories about life in space at various times in the future. Some are interesting, but others are boring. The lack of contiguous themes or characters outside of the overall theme of living in space makes it hard to stay interested for anyone but a aerospace otaku. Permalink " "
