The view from L1 -- Water World -- Neuropolis -- Yu, or how I found my inner geographer -- One to one -- Age of Geography
On this beautiful orb, sustained in space by a complex web of natural systems, we have reached the point in our collective journey where geographical knowledge is the best guarantor of our future.
In this distillation of a lifetime's work, Nicholas Crane makes the compelling case that never has geography been so important. On this finite orb, with its battered habitat, sustained in dark space by a thin, life-giving atmosphere, we have reached a point in our collective geographical journey where knowledge is the best guarantor of the future.
