What would it be like if we were suddenly to lose most, if not all, of our space satellites?  Science fiction and popular science author Les Johnson believes that we’ve become dependent upon them.  Les predicts what might happen to our economy, defense, and daily lives if they were suddenly destroyed.  It would not be a good time… .

Les Johnson is a husband, father, physicist, and author of both science fiction and science fact.  In his “day job” he serves as the Deputy Manager for the Advanced Concepts Office at the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center.

His published science fiction books include Going Interstellar and Back to the Moon.  His published popular science books include Sky Alert: When Satellites Fail, Paradise Regained: The Regreening of Earth, Solar Sails: A Novel Approach to Interplanetary Travel, and Living Off the Land in Space.
