From Our Editors

As a compelling and detailed account of humanity’s evolving understanding of space, this book will satisfy the intellect and curiosity of any avid stargazer. In The Pearly Gates of Cyberspace: A History of Space from Dante to the Internet, Margaret Wertheim takes the reader on an intriguing journey through time from the middle ages to the dotcom age that documents how our relationship with space shifts from the spiritual to the scientific. Upon arriving in our modern age, Wertheim shows how we may have come full circle with an examination of the Internet as a replicated source of worship and spirituality.
