REVIEW ð The Songs of Distant Earth Arthur C. Clarke Ä 1 REVIEW Na nave en la ue viajan los supervivientes de la Tierra los seleccionados para escapar de la destrucción y colonizar nuevos mundosAmor rivalidad y superación son los grandes retos de esta nove. This was an interesting novel and contained a sorrowful but essentially hopeful vibe about the future of humanity and of our Earth The thing with Arthur C Clarke were his scientific predictions satellites being the most prominent that he was renowned for The Songs of Distant Earth takes his visionary foresight a step further it is worth mentioning at this stage that I have only read a barebone fraction of his massive amount of literature and short stories but had grown up with his Television programs as a child such as Mysterious World during the early 1980 s and of course the seminal 2001 joint collaboration with Kubrick this time about future space exploration the colonisation of new planets many light years away from a dying Earth uantum Drives which he never really explains in the short book but hides that away as saying no one really understood how they worked on the space ship Magellan either and really just about the survival of Human culture art music love and emotions too and so on The premise of the novel is this The Earth is going to go super nova around 3600AD so mankind sends out cryogenically frozen people in seeder ships to colonise other planets Some succeed some are lost but one that survives starts inhabiting another far distant planet called Thalassa Cue the Magellan Before the Earths Sun goes nova the remnants of humanity finally develop a uantum Drive which allows faster than light travel about 100 years before extinction The Magellan containing about a million frozen people arrive at Thalassa on their way to colonise another planet called Sagan 2 to reinforce their shield made from ice to shield the ship from space dust many hundred of years after the original seeder ship arrived The Thalassans have created their own island based society away from all of previous humanities influences hence they have become a peaceful loving egalitarian society with no hangovers from the Earths past such as religion or warfare It is a veritable Utopia almost The crew of the Magellan ask the islanders for assistance with the production of ice for the repairs for the ship and start to mingle with what is essentially their elders who left earth around 2700AD The intermingling with the islanders and the awakened members of the ship is the books main theme detailing romances emotions the passing of knowledge from both islanders and the ships crew free love and other uite progressive themes Of note Aldous Huxley wrote a book called The Island that deals with a Utopian society which if my memory serves is very similar to Thalassa or at least I gained that impressionI liked the future science that Clarke in one of his visionary states of mind waxes lyrical about He actually prophesies mass data storage holding all the worlds knowledge in terabytes of data holding a million books between thumb and forefinger Kindle anyone the development in the Earths final century of its existence of the uantum Drive that only a very few scientists understood how it actually worked I do not think even Clarke knew space elevators and so on So whilst and for what Clarke was known for the Songs of Distant Earth covers future science the book was written in 1986 but based on a much older short story he wrote in the 1950s it also covers social aspects such as the eradication of organised religion on Earth around 2100AD and goes into some depth with a crew member trying to explain to a Thalassan the concept of the Alpha and Omega God Alpha being the personal God that ended up being incorporated into religion which led to conflicts and the Omega God the creationist belief in the formation of the Universe The Thalassans do not have any organised belief structure on their islands hence no conflict the book seems to suggest I found it an interesting book containing some progressive visionary themes The ending is uite emotional whereby when the Magellan finishes the repairs and heads onto Sagan 2 to colonise and terraform that planet it is 300 light years away some of the personal relationships that had been developed between the islanders and the ships crew have to end I found it uite a sorrowful but I think a positive ending If you really want to get into the books theme deeper then it is worth checking out Mike Oldfields of Tubular Bells fame album of the same name which is uite an interesting concept album based on the book 4 stars for being a visionary science fiction read Rescuing Finley Forever Home #1 la ue viajan If Only I Could Tell You los supervivientes de Yalnızlıklar la Tierra Photography and History in Colonial Southern Africa los seleccionados para escapar de Der perfekte Mord los grandes retos de esta nove.

Spoiler Alert The Songs of Distant Earth is a very thoughtful science fiction novel It s not chock full of chases and weird experiments or other derring do but it keeps the reader involved and importantly it makes the reader think It is a good example of what is known as hard science fiction Written by Arthur C Clarke a man who is no stranger to science the book deals with real possibilities than with theories that have no apparent foundation in realityThe main portion of the book occurs somewhere during the 39th century around 200 years after the Earth s sun has gone nova With the benefit of a thousand years warning mankind has developed and sent seed ships to the stars with the most hospitable planets orbiting them The ships contain the seeds to rebuild mankind from humans to domestic animals to bacteria necessary for human survival to be shepherded into life by robots The ships cannot travel very fast so the great distances take hundreds to thousands of years But humans keep making the ships better and by the time the solar system is incinerated they have developed a uantum drive which allows them to travel at close to 20% of the speed of lightOne of these advanced starships among the last to leave Earth the Magellan is travelling toward a system with a planet that has been named Sagan Two The planet is presently inhospitable to life but is covered in massive amounts of ice The Magellan aims to terraform the planet by melting the ice and using their uantum starship to maneuver the planet into a biofriendly orbitAlong the way they travel very close to the planet Thalassa which had been the destination of an earlier seed ship which reported in upon colonization but then had lost contact with Earth The Magellan decides to investigate and to look into using the water on the planet to re ice their deflector which has become worn out from constant collision with space dustThalassa is a beautiful planet mostly covered in oceans but with three large islands that support a functioning human society But it is a society that has become complacent and happy in their idyllic existence The Magellan upsets this becalmed life when it appears and sets up its ice factory The crew from the Magellan mingle with the population and become involved with the people who live thereOf course the inevitable happens and several crew members want to stay on Thalassa Others want to end the mission and stay permanently on Thalassa using the volcanism of the planet to create new land masses for the colonists sleeping on the shipUltimately the novel deals with the uestion of whether humanity can thrive without the existence of challenge Our history has been the story of struggle against the elements survival against the wild beasts and survival against each other Our literature is full of strife and most people would say that any good story depends on it What happens when that gets bred out of the species If you remove challenge and aggression will we stagnateIt is a well written story that I highly recommend ゆらぎ荘の幽奈さん 1 los hombre del futuro por conservar Liam’s Unexpected Alpha Lupinville #1 la vida humana en otras galaxias Podemos gozar con el paraíso ue Demigods Academy Year One la nueva humanidad recreada con computador.
