The Songs of distant earth

More than two thousand years in the future, a small human colony thrives on the ocean paradise of Thalassa-sent there centuries ago to continue the human race before the Earth's destruction. Thalassa's resources are vast-and the human colony has lived a bucolic life there. But their existence is threatened when the spaceship Magellan arrives on their world-carrying one million refugees from Earth, fleeing the dying planet. Reputed to be Arthur C. Clarke's favorite novel, Songs of Distant Earth addresses several fascinating scientific questions unresolved in their time-including the question of why so few neutrinos from the sun have been measured on Earth. In addition, Clarke presents an inventive depiction of the use of vacuum energy to power spacecraft-and the technical logistics of space travel near the speed of light.

  • "Un paradis rêvé envahi par des réfugiés. Amalgame de situations plus que récit continu malgré les dates 1956-4135 qui figurent en chronologie terminale."

  • "The paradise of Thalassa is threatened by an evolutionary event brewing beneath the calm seas and by a spacecraft of refugees hovering in orbit above the planet. The arrival of a spaceship from Earth--destroyed when its sun went nova--carrying five million Earthlings in suspended animation, as well as an uncensored cultural record of Earth, threatens to destroy the paradisiacal plkanet of Thalassa."@en

  • "When Earth is destroyed by the Sun's explosion, a few refugees escape on a starship that uses a new quantum drive. En route to an empty and hostile world they intend to colonize, they stop at a colony settled long ago that arouses their ambivalent admiration."@en
