Exploration is about discovering new places, understandings and species and so much more. Sometimes it means going to old places and seeing them with new eyes and revealing hidden truths. Sometimes it involves looking back, understanding the past, and reaching from the darkness into the light. One thing is certain: despite the impressive extent of our accumulated knowledge, we have barely scratched the surface of our understanding of our world.
Who are the people pushing the boundaries of knowledge? Who are the explorers? Some wear crampons and climb mountains; some dive to the deepest ocean depths or soar as astronauts in space. Others make their monumental discoveries while working at computers and microscopes or while studying the human brain and chimpanzee behavior. Others are focused on the survival of the planet. How will we find and nurture the next generation of explorers, and who will undertake that important task? The head-spinning pace at which new technologies are being developed and applied, from Lidar to AI to gene editing, is already changing how we explore. How will technology allow us to better understand and protect our planet?
In The Future of Exploration, Terry Garcia and Chris Rainier gather some of the world’s leading explorers, scientists, conservationists, futurists, and thinkers to discuss the next frontiers of exploration. To the backdrop of remarkable photographs that take us to the bottom of the ocean, to the highest mountains on earth, far out into space, and everywhere in between, these passionate voices reveal the wonder of human exploration and ingenuity and share their vision and hope for the future.
All proceeds from the sale of the book will be distributed as grants for future explorers. Join us in supporting the future of exploration.
