Space Enterprise: Living and Working Offworld in the 21st Century

Coperta unu
Springer Science & Business Media, 29 dec. 2009 - 620 pagini

For over a half century, human activities in outer space have increased, but the high point was the Apollo Moon landings from 1969 – 1972. Now the United States has set forth a national space policy to return permanently to the lunar surface by 2020, and NASA is engaged in strategic planning to accomplish that goal. Furthermore, Europe, Russia, Japan, China, and India are undertaking missions to the Moon and its vicinity. All this will lead to using our sister planet as a space station and launch pad to Mars and other celestial bodies.

In SPACE ENTERPRISE - LIVING AND WORKING OFFWORLD, Dr Philip Harris provides the vision and rationale as to why humanity is leaving its cradle, Earth, to use space resources, as well as pursuing lunar industrialization and establishing offworld settlements. As a management/space psychologist, Dr. Harris presents a behavioral science perspective on space exploration and enterprise. In this his 45th book, Phil has completely revised and updated the two previous editions of this classic, placing new emphasis on the need for more synergy and participation by the private sector. He not only provides a critical review of what is happening in the global space community, but offers specific strategies for lunar economic development. The author analyzes the human factors in contemporary and future space developments, especially relative to the deployment of people aloft. This user-friendly volume offers numerous photographs, diagrams, exhibits, and case studies. Easily readable, as well as useful as a reference work, the book’s content covers a wide range of practical considerations related to human activities offworld. To live and work successfully in a microgravity environment, the author examines human performance and organizational management, as well as physical, psychological, political, commercial, legal, and other dimensions.

Despre autor (2009)

As a behavioral scientist, Dr. Harris’ career spans some sixty years devoted to human resource and organization development. A management psychologist, he has successfully assisted over 200 clients systems worldwide. For the past twenty-five years, he has concentrated on a specialization in space psychology, serving as a NASA consultant and Faculty Fellow, as well as Associate Fellow for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. A professional futurist, the focus of his leading-edge research and practice on human behavior has been leadership, change, communication, culture, and management.

Dr. Harris has authored or edited some forty-four published books, most recently Future Possibilities – Toward Human Emergence and Managing the Knowledge Culture. His classic volume, Managing Cultural Differences, is now in a seventh edition and used as a textbook in four hundred universities and colleges. As co-author of Multicultural Law Enforcement, this best-seller is in a third edition and widely used in criminal justice systems. Besides two prior editions of Living and Working in Space, he has also written a novel, Launch Out – a science-based scenario about private enterprise prospects in lunar industrialization. "Phil" has also written some 250 journal articles, wining eight times the journalism award of excellence from the Aviation/Space Writers Association. He has edited three professional journals, founding one entitled Space Governance. For the past ten years he was a member of the editorial board for The European Business Review where his articles also won a literary award for excellence.

In his multifaceted career, our author has been both a college and corporate vice president, lectured or taught at universities throughout the world. He has been recipient of numerous awards and grants, including from the U. S. Office of Naval Research and the U. S. State Department as a Fulbright Professor to India. A graduate of St. John’s (BBA) and Fordham (MS/Ph.D) Universities, Dr. Harris resides in La Jolla, California. He is listed in several biographical directories, including Who’s Who in America.
