Science fiction allows us to experience other worlds without leaving our own. The good news is that even though these worlds are fictional, they are based in science. I actually started out as a physics major. Many years ago, my mind was jostled to complete fascination when I read books about parallel universes, quantum physics, and the nature of time, by people such as Fred Alan Wolf and Paul Davies, and later I fell in love with books by Michio Kaku. However, the study of our amazing universe isn’t just for theoretical or astrophysicists. It’s for anyone with a hunger for knowledge and adventure. Here are some articles, websites, and talks that explain more about the concepts used in my books. You’ll also find interesting info about Mars and its resources.

When the Ares visits Enceladus they find icy geysers shooting into the air. Five hundred years from now they’ve figured out how to avoid being sliced in half by them and how these fissures help them funnel heat from inside the moon. Learn about Enceladus here:
