Call #: Science Fiction Steph.N
If you like a lot of science with your fiction, this one’s for you. Due to rapidly increasing bolide strikes from pieces of rock knocked off an impacted moon, Earth is splitting apart and burning. How to ensure that humanity survives for the next 5000 or so years that the Earth will be uninhabitable? That is the goal of the frantic scientists, politicians, and social planners. However, humans both selfish and selfless don’t necessarily follow plans. This race against time feels both urgent and frustrating. Will they succeed and what will success look like?
