(1917-1986) US scientist and author whose nonfiction The Challenge of Man's Future (1954) combines demographical, ecological and energy concerns in a pioneering work of great admonitory influence. His sf novel, The Cassiopeia Affair (1968) with Chloe Zerwick, treats fictionally the same problems through a story about a possibly bogus message from the stars that may keep mankind from destroying itself in a terminal conflagration.
