Tianhou Queen of Heaven
A lot of science fiction, factual science mixed with facts,thoughts, concepts and evolution interspersed with self deprecating humor about real life events. The science is as exact as it can be as the book is also an experiment on how much uniquely can be done with the free tools available to the public at minimal cost. More
In the near future a gigantic spaceship is detected by the newly operational Chinese Radio telescope FAST. The Object is on a cometary path and will rocket past Earth’s orbit to revisit Gaia’s realm only in the next 300 years.
The consensus of the main powers was that the ship, baptized Tianhou, was a derelict artefact of an advanced past or present civilization. Since it possibly contained technological treasures and ungodly scientific might that could still be onboard, an international scientific & technological venture far outreaching the famous Manhattan Project is launched in the hope of intercepting the cosmic visitor. When the provocatively named earthling first interplanetary spaceship furiously blasted off its nuclear engines a few years later to escape low earth orbit, the children of Gaia had already started to change.
The novel explores issues of both philosophy and socio-political importance that we all face in the arduous and often uncertain voyage through life .The scientific facts are extensively researched and verified to ensure that like the other historical and factual information, the reader is not led astray by irrelevant supposition and fantasy masquerading as the truth but is left in the position of reaching conclusions by themselves based on actual quantifiable, verifiable hard facts.
