  1. Book Bible Blog - The Gaia Probe.

    The Gaia probe is the UOLĎs greatest achievement and the saviour of mankind from the tedium of the lifeless and inhospitable void. These gigantic autonomous probes scour the galaxy looking for suitable donor planets.

    The UOL determined that the two basic elements required for kick starting life upon barren rocks are gravity and atmosphere, with the latter relying upon the former. The Gaia probe creates both elements within human parameters and additionally, seeds the basic building ...

  2. The University of Life (UOL).

    The University of Life (UOL) came into being during manís early conquest of space. The UOL emerged from manís earliest official Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence the SETI Institute. SETI was a non-profit corporation sponsored by technology companies and other scientific institutions. The proliferation of man throughout the solar-system and advances in space based technology increased interest in the universe and consequentially, funding.

    SETI relaunched itself as the University ...

  3. Book Bible Blog - Singularity Power Generator (SPG).

    The advent of the Anti-gravity Engine (AGE) revolutionised space flight. It also allowed man to harness the greatest power in the universe, the black hole.

    The black hole is a hugely destructive force. However, tamed by man it has fuelled his conquest of space. A black hole is made of material so dense that it absorbs even light. Its extensive mass creates gravitational fields so great that entire planets are dragged to their doom. The mass is also an unparalleled source of energy. ...

  4. Book Bible Blog - The Anti-Gravity Engine.

    As resources became scarce on Terra humans took to the stars to feed their voracious appetite for materials. Manís greed ensured that conflicts started on the surface were pursued vigorously into the void.

    The level of technology attained at the time of manís entry into the void constricted ships to the limits of Newtonís theories of physics. The early ships had to overcome their mass to change direction, which exhausted huge amounts of fuel. Mass became the primary design constraint ...

  5. Book Bible Blog - Defensive Systems.

    Shields.

    The primary component of shield technology is a powerful electro-magnetic field. This field in itself can be used to disrupt physical objects or charged objects. However, its real function is to hold a web of cold plasma in place. The ionised plasma deflects surface electrons of incoming atoms.

    This type of field is extremely effective at dispersing lasers, particle beams and projectile weapons. Plasma beams pose an issue as it heats the cold plasma causing ...

  6. Book concepts - Weaponry.

    Pulsed Energy Projectile.

    An intense pulse of laser energy ablates the surface of the target creating exploding plasma. The weapon causes surface damage due to heat and a small amount of kinetic damage due to the force of the explosion. An EM field is also produced, which affects electronics and causes nerve pain in humans. Anti-personnel weapons can be used to stun opponents at low power levels, leaving just a small burn.

  7. Book Bible Blog - Communicating in the void.

    Quantum communications are based upon Quantum Entanglement. Particles that have interacted and become entangled in the past will continue to interact when separated by distance. A change in a particleís state will be mirrored in the entangled particle, regardless of distance. For instance the polarisation of two separated previously interacting photons. This photon can be referred to as Qubit. A series of Qubit states can be used to transmit information almost instantaneously. A photonic qubit can ...

  8. Book Bible Blog - Wormhole Gates.

    A Wormhole gate uses the principles of the Alcubierre drive to create an energy tunnel to another point in space many light years away. Space craft are able to navigate through these short tunnels in minutes and emerge from the far side light years from their last real space coordinates.

    Two gates are required to create a wormhole. If the tunnel isnít terminated in a stable manner the destination isnít guaranteed as an untethered wormhole behaves in a similar way to a disconnected ...

  9. Book Bible Blog - Faster Than Light Drive (FTL Drive).

    Contemporary FTL drives are based upon the ancient concept of the Alcubierre drive. The concept relies upon expanding space-time behind a ship and shrinking the fabric of space in front of it. The ship itself does not move, space-time slides beneath the ship. Creating these shifts in space-time can be achieved by the use of a dark energy bubble. The trick is to position the ship on the meniscus of the bubble in order to create the effect needed for virtual propulsion.

    The bubble itself ...

  10. Book Bible Blog - Mind Pilots

    Originally they were referred to as Linkers, now theyíre known as Mind Pilots. Their abilities arenít specifically geared towards the piloting of space faring vessels but with the odds stacked heavily in their favour their exploits at the helm of powerful spacecraft seem heroic to the masses when aired on the media channels.

    A rare genetic anomaly that has proven not to be hereditary and impossible to reproduce by geneticists, legally or otherwise, instantly transforms a minute number ...
  11. To Be or Not To Be A Romance, A Fantasy, Or A Load of Craptastic Awfulness

    In order to investigate the idea of strong romance coupled with fantasy creating a black hole of craptasticness in the fantasy-novel universe, I decided to read waaaaaay too many new fantasy/romance books in my short break between spring/summer semesters. Unfortunately, I had to conclude that the fantasy physicists are correct: none of them are good (and I kind of knew that going into it but...sometimes I like to read things that make me throw the book against the wall, it's the Italian in me). ...

  14. Killer review on Amazon

    And I don't even know this person. I mean, I know her now. I didn't know her before she read the book.

    I'm breaking out the red wine. Wait, I've already done that. Okay, I'm breaking out more.
