Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier is the 2012 anthology by Neil deGrasse Tyson covering his various writings relating to the history and future of NASA and space travel in general.[1]

One of the chapters is a transcript of his attendance as a guest on the Rationally Speaking podcast in 2010, when he explained his justification for spending large amounts of government money on space programs.[2]

Tyson intended the book's original title to be, Failure to Launch: The Dreams and Delusions of Space Enthusiasts.[3]
