"I am happy to have appeared in ODYSSEY OF SURVIVAL, which I hope has the widest possible distribution.

Besides giving an excellent summary of what has already happened in space, its 'preview' of the next half century should convince even skeptics that 'the best is yet to be'."

-Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Author, "2001: A Space Odyssey"

“Mark, what a wonderful mirror of my mind and my dreams, many thanks! Your voice is terrific and the animation sensational, but the music was the best. Crisp and brilliant, like a sunrise over the desert.

ODYSSEY OF SURVIVAL is the music of the age ... we have reached for the stars and touched heaven.

What child of dreams could not be inspired by the 100 years of our space ‘Odyssey’?”

-Dr. Gerald Soffen, Astrobiology, NASA HQ, Washington, D.C.
