Veteran, Father, “Guy Who Breaks Things Until They Work” Tim Chrisman is launching his new book, “Humanity In Space”. The book is available through Amazon and is expected to become a big hit with people interested in space, but scared of the math.

This is the second book Tim authored. The book was written with the aim in mind to be a cartoonish rendition of the future. Not cartoonish as in funny, but cartoonish as in an attempt to portray the broad outlines of something without trying to get it perfectly accurate. There’s also particular excitement about this launch because space is becoming more accessible all the time.
There are few people alive today who have spent much time without there being humans in space. But we don’t know what being in space means. No one tells their kids…oh well I guess if that doesn’t work out you can always be an astronaut. Telling a child about going to space is talked about in the same way being President or a fairy princess is. Because humans in space are not real…at least not in our minds. We know what is real because we can touch it, or because we can envision it. Since humans sat around fires telling legends we have brought the untouchable to life through stories. There were no cavemen explaining the math behind throwing a spear, nor were there any ancient Egyptians talking about the mechanics of biology. We brought those concepts to life by telling stories. Stories about people we all knew doing things we all knew about. Stories anchoring the abstract in reality.
Humanity In Space sets its main focus on how humanity will live, work, eat, and party in space over the next 100 years. Not a prediction of what could be, but an explanation of what must be. Of those things that physics mandates or the reality of living in an environment hostile to life. Readers will likely find a particular interest in this book isn’t a science book, nor is it a work of fiction. It is somehow both…It is a space-age cave drawing. The book’s cover art was created by Tim Chrisman and Humanity In Space is being released by the author.
Tim Chrisman has a background in making complicated topics accessible, whether they be for military, government, or public audiences. This helped shaped the creation of the book by making them want to make the hard science of space accessible to everyone.
When asked about why they wrote the book, Chrisman said: “I wrote this book because I wanted to see if I could…and because I wanted to fill the gap between a physics class and Star Trek”
Chrisman has hopes that the book will make people think about outer space differently. To realize that space, like any other place humans have lived is a place to be conquered, mastered and ultimately tamed. This positive outlook from the author is certainly a testament to their optimism considering it was published during a worldwide pandemic, yet remains an optimistic look at the future.
In a recent interview, the author made a point of thanking the readers of his blog, Humanity In Space, his kids,, and his wife Katie for their part in the creation of the book, saying: “You all put up with a lot of bad stories on the way to me publishing this…now it is time to spread those bad stories around”
