Earth refugees threaten a peaceful space settlement in this influential novel from the Golden Age science fiction author of 2001: A Space Odyssey. 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 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, The 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. “Clarke’s simple, musical style never falters in this novel, which is a sobering yet far from bleak commentary on humanity’s longing for the stars. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

In den Tiefen des Jupiters Howard Falcon ist zum Fliegen geboren. Am liebsten gleitet er mit ultramodernen Heißluft Ballonen durch die Lüfte. Auch nach einem Unfall, bei dem er schwer verletzt wird, gibt Falco seine Leidenschaft nicht auf. Und er hat sich ehrgeizige Ziele gesteckt: Als erster Mensch will er mit einem speziell dafür konstruierten Schiff, der Kon-Tiki, durch die obersten Atmosphärenschichten des Jupiters fliegen. Falcon erhält den Auftrag – und traut seinen Augen nicht: Jupiters Gasozeane werden von gigantischen, quallenähnlichen Lebewesen und ihren den Manta-Rochen ähnelnden Räubern bewohnt. Als die Tiere Falcons Schiff entdecken, gerät die Kon-Tiki in Gefahr. Falcon muss schier Übermenschliches leisten, um Schiff und Crew zu retten. Aber Falcon ist schon lange kein Mensch mehr ...
