Summary

Summary

Open Your Mind. Expand Your Universe. Reach for Mars.

Imagine a better tomorrow with interstellar art and essays—drawing on the aspirational futurism that fuels Star Trek, The Martian, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, renowned contemporary artist Camomile Hixon reminds us that by reaching for the stars, we can transform ourselves and life on Earth.

We are on the threshold of interplanetary travel: SpaceX just launched the first manned commercial flight to the international space station; NASA’s 5th rover landing is due on Mars in 2021. Not since the moon landing in 1969 has space—or the promise of a utopian future for humanity—felt so close. Do we dare to reach for it?

Yearning to know the stars has long united humanity and ignited our imaginations. And while here on Earth we grapple with deep unrest—economic struggle, political upheaval, gender discrimination, pandemics, racial tensions, climate change—the potential of Mars has sparked a new, universal hope and a common sense of purpose as we fulfill our destiny by moving beyond Earth’s orbit.

Celebrating the limitless potential of space and the human spirit, Hixon’s indelible essays and fantastical works of art invite us to imagine a future where we reach together for absolute freedom and prosperity for all on our grand quest for world peace, unconditional love, transcendent experiences, and deeper knowing.

Weaving science, history, art, and philosophy with meditations on higher consciousness inspired by the overview effect of seeing Earth from Space, Space Nomads is a book of unbridled optimism for the future.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Camomile Hixon is a true artist and a creative spirit for the new age. The vision she presents in this book is one of courageous optimism: a pure and beautiful hopefulness for humanity.” Sheika Fariha Al-Jerrahi, Founder of Dia Art Foundation
“I wish Camomile Hixon had written this book twenty-five years ago when it would have served me well as an actress playing the captain of a starship, struggling as both an artist and a student to understand the unfathomable mystery of space. Hixon is passionate about a future on Mars, but because her passion is grounded in theory, we are allowed to imagine just such a reality and this is, of course, how dreams come true. Intelligent, philosophical, lyrical, and beautifully illustrated, Space Nomads: Set a Course for Mars is a must-read for anyone wishing to grasp the imperceptible through idealism and aspiration.” Kate Mulgrew, Actress and Author
“When stories of the future exploration and habitation of the cosmos are written, they are usually stories of technology and battles and intrigue. In Space Nomads: Set a Course for Mars, Camomile Hixon instead tells these same stories with art, poetry, compassion. Will any of these futures come true? I don’t know, but if one does, I would like to sign up for the future of the Space Nomads, expanding our shared humanity into the universe.” Mike Brown, author of How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming
