    Cool ~1980, planet is actually a ship-kooko, cukoo??

    .

    Looking for a book I read while in the US Navy. The people thought they lived on a planet, but found out it was actually a giant ship. Thanks guys.

    The book you are looking for is probably in this list Generation Ships
    The most well-known such story is Robert Heinlein's 'Orphans of the Sky'.

    Cool

    .

    Thanks, I'll go through each one to see if the planet's name I'm looking for is mentioned.

    There's also Non-Stop by Brian Aldiss, which was cleverly title Starship in the U.S., thus giving away the entire point of the book.

    Cool

    .

    This was alien. Nothing to do with Earth, iirc. Nobody knew it was a ship.
    Again, iirc, only one or 2 people found out, & I believe it was the end of book, or near the end.
    With a planet name like cucko, kooko ?? I was hoping it would be something I could figure out now a days with the net.

    Thanks guys.
