With presidential elections coming up, a popular television talk show invites the favorite candidate, astrophysicist John L. Ivanov, to present his ambitious ideas on space exploration. But the host, Denes Nagy, isn´t afraid to ask the real questions. As the civil debate turns into a verbal boxing match, startling ideas about the future of humanity will be revealed. Only one can win. The audience will decide who it will be.

THE LONG WAY TO THE STARS introduces us to the latest scientific theories about the origins of the Solar System and life in the Universe. In a funny, inventive and accessible manner, it immerses us in scientific ideas and makes us think about where we are going and what needs to be done if we are to survive as a species.
