    1. while the title was slightly misleading to me; I was expecting a study of Terraforming technologies. It does provide at least a beginners view of technologies examined thus far for expanded space exploration. It does not however, provide technical details on these methods that an advanced space enthusiast might require.

    2. The artwork wasn't really my style, but I appreciated the clear explanations of different types of propulsion systems.
