Dan Razvan Popoviciu new book New Worlds: Colonizing Planets, Moons and Beyond (published by Bentham Science) explores the possibilities of transforming humanity into a multi-planetary species, while also sounding an alarm about our long-term future. It emphasizes the importance of efficiently using Earth's resources and expanding beyond the planet's borders.

In the book, Popoviciu discusses how various planets, moons, and asteroids in the Solar System can provide important resources and become potential new home worlds for humans. The author goes beyond simple colonization and discusses solutions for terraforming these worlds, making them habitable for human descendants. He suggests that the technological solutions needed for terraforming are within reach and can be accomplished with the necessary willpower.

He also highlights the importance of researching the working mechanisms of the Universe, which is crucial for accessing other planetary systems. The book concludes by emphasizing the need for a synergistic approach to settling the Cosmos, using all available methods simultaneously to lower costs and the necessary time.

With ten captivating chapters, the book delves into the economic and demographic reasons driving the push for space exploration and settlement and exciting technical and ecological solutions that can improve life on Earth. This book covers everything from terraforming Mars and other planets like Venus to colonizing the outer reaches of our solar system and beyond. The author also dives into ethical considerations that support the expansion of humanity beyond our planet. New Worlds: Colonizing Planets, Moons and Beyond is an informative and essential read for anyone fascinated by the idea of space exploration and colonization.
