Publisher's Summary

Transform Your Mind. Expand Your Universe. Reach for Mars.  

Imagine a better tomorrow with interstellar essays and art - drawing on the aspirational futurism that fuels Star Trek, The Martian, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, renowned contemporary artist Camomile Hixon reminds us that by reaching for the stars, we can chase our full potential beyond Earth, while also transforming ourselves and our understanding of the Pale Blue Dot we call home.  

We stand at the threshold of interplanetary travel: SpaceX rockets are now routinely leaving Earth and NASA’s new Perseverance rover is searching for signs of ancient life on the Red Planet. Not since the moon landing in 1969 has space - or the promise of a transformational future for humankind - felt so close. Do we dare to reach for it?  

Yearning to know the stars has long united humanity and ignited our imaginations. And while here on Earth we grapple with deep unrest - economic struggle, political upheaval, gender discrimination, pandemics, racial tensions, climate change - the potential of a colony on Mars has sparked a new, universal hope and a heightened sense of collective purpose as we discover our ultimate destiny beyond Earth’s orbit.   

Celebrating the limitless potential of space and the human spirit, Hixon’s indelible essays and fantastical works of art invite us to imagine a transcendent future where we reach together for absolute freedom, unconditional love, and wellness on our grand quest for world peace. Weaving science, history, art, and philosophy with meditations on higher consciousness inspired by seeing the Earth from Space, Space Nomads is a book of unbridled optimism for the future.
