O’Neill’s book is viewed as one of the seminal works in the modern aerospace industry. First published in 1977, it provided an optimistic ideal of the incredible things that could be accomplished in space even using Apollo era technology, while at the same time providing a roadmap of how we could get there. O’Neill’s work had a great effect on the industry that grew after it, often through the effect it had on those who would grow up to eventually join it. The High Frontier has had an incredible effect on inspiring students into participating in fields in the sciences and aerospace, many of whom have become remarkable contributors to industry and the sciences.

It is hoped that placing these books will inspire students to have more interest in the sciences and aerospace, key to developing the future of our industry. There is no charge for either the book or for shipping.

SEDS and the Space Frontier Foundation received a generous targeted donation for this  joint educational outreach project to distribute copies of the Second Edition of The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space to high school and university libraries across the country currently lacking a copy. The Second Edition (pictured above) was published by the Space Studies Institute in 1989 as a 5×8-inch high-quality trade paperback, with a new introduction and appendix by the author and a Preface by Astronaut Kathy Sullivan.
