Inhoud

Arthur C. Clarke is one of the world's most renowned writers of science and science fiction, 'one of the truly prophectic figures of the space age' (New Yorker). In this remarkable collection of essays, Clarke offers a fascinating excursion into what the future may hold.

In his uniquely entertaining style he looks at the fourth dimension and the obsolescence of the law of gravity; the exploration of the entire solar system and the colonisation of some of it; and the possibility that men, already bigger than they need to be, may be bred smaller to be more efficient on less food.

First published in 1962 and since revised by Clarke, Profiles of the Future is a fascinating collection, explaining that almost everything is possible in this improbable world in which we live.
