10/3/06: Space Expert and Novelist Dr. Ben Bova

Author Ben Bova's latest novel is called, <i>Titan</i>, Planet Novel #5 in his <b>Grand Tour</b> series.

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Dr. Ben Bova has been studying - and re-imagining space - since the earliest days of its exploration. He is the author of more than 100 futuristic novels and nonfiction books, and his tales are so well hypothesized, that many have accurately predicted scientific milestones. Bova will be in Salt Lake City later this week, and joins Doug for a look at the current state of the space age, and the plausibility of manned missions to the planets.
