Publisher Description

Open Your Mind. Expand Your Universe. Reach for Mars.

Imagine a better tomorrow with interstellar art and essays—drawing on the aspirational futurism that fuels Star Trek, The Martian, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, renowned contemporary artist Camomile Hixon reminds us that by reaching for the stars, we can transform ourselves and life on Earth.

We are on the threshold of interplanetary travel: SpaceX just launched the first manned commercial flight to the international space station; NASA’s 5th rover landing is due on Mars in 2021. Not since the moon landing in 1969 has space—or the promise of a utopian future for humanity—felt so close. Do we dare to reach for it?

Yearning to know the stars has long united humanity and ignited our imaginations. And while here on Earth we grapple with deep unrest—economic struggle, political upheaval, gender discrimination, pandemics, racial tensions, climate change—the potential of Mars has sparked a new, universal hope and a common sense of purpose as we fulfill our destiny by moving beyond Earth’s orbit.

Celebrating the limitless potential of space and the human spirit, Hixon’s indelible essays and fantastical works of art invite us to imagine a future where we reach together for absolute freedom and prosperity for all on our grand quest for world peace, unconditional love, transcendent experiences, and deeper knowing.

Weaving science, history, art, and philosophy with meditations on higher consciousness inspired by the overview effect of seeing Earth from Space, Space Nomads is a book of unbridled optimism for the future.
