Amazon.com description: Product Description: NEW STORIES OF THE FUTURE OF SPACE EXPLORATION. Original anthology of stories about near-future space exploration from top authors. Includes stories by Jack McDevitt, Michael F. Flynn, Sarah A. Hoyt, Ben Bova, Mike Resnick, and many more.

In Mission: Tomorrow, science fiction writers imagine a future in space exploration where NASA no longer dominates. Will private companies rule the stars or will new governments take up the call? Whether Brazilian, Russian, or Chinese, the characters in these stories deal with everything from strange encounters to troubled satellites and space ships, to competition for funding and "getting there first." Nineteen stories of what-if, spanning the gamut from Mercury to Pluto and beyond, assembled by critically praised editor Bryan Thomas Schmidt.

Alex Shvartsman 
Lezli Robyn
Robert Silverberg 
Michael F. Flynn  
Brenda Cooper
