Ik zit wel lekker in het ruimte-thema de laatste tijd. Na The Martian ben ik nu bezig met het fascinerende Seveneves van Neal Stephenson. Om de New York Times te citeren:
In his latest, “Seveneves,” Stephenson applies his skills to a scenario like the one described above: What if Earth’s moon suddenly and spontaneously broke apart into seven large pieces? What would happen to life on Earth? It’s an intriguing premise, one that could conceivably go in any number of interesting directions. What would be the ramifications for every aspect of society, including economics, governance, the rule of law, privacy and security, not to mention even more fundamental matters like reproductive rights, religion and belief?
