How will we behave as we venture forth into the pristine, silent reaches of the solar system?
Will we just take and pollute?


Or will our space-faring civilization bring fecundity, produce beauty?
Will we find the time to make art in space?


With The Astronaut's Poetic Handbook, artist and composer Bob Vanderbob invites us - the Children of the Solar System - to inspire our astronauts with ideas of beautiful things to do out there.
