Dragon's Egg: A Novel
About this deal
Naturally, an abundance of plot, appealing characters, a truly novel premise (Forward was an astrophysicist and the quality of the science in his SF is matched only by Brin in the current generation and Asimov or perhaps Niven in the older one), alien sex. Despite all of these complications, Robert Forward somehow manages to make this a Hard Sci-Fi story, and for that I give him 5 million (neutron) stars. Soy biólogo y paleontólogo, siento fascinación por los seres vivos, y es por eso que toda la trama humana y sus pesquisas científicas me pesaron y hartaron. After both Prince Maelor and Ser Rickard had been killed, Lady Caswell sent the dragon egg to Lord Ormund Hightower at Longtable, hoping to soothe his wroth.

Sir Fred Hoyle, un brillante astrofísico, no se ruborizaba al confesar que no creía en la teoría de la evolución, algo tan absurdo como decir que yo no creo en la nucleosíntesis estelar que pergeño él, pues las teorías científicas no son dogmas de fe en los que se puedan creer, sino modelos lo suficientemente refinados como para explicar un fenómeno particular. Y no comentaré mucho más, pues aun queda mucho por descubrir de esta fascinante raza extraterrestre. But who can say for sure that similar processes cannot take place between neutrons and protons under extremely high gravity stresses?The Earth mission discovers that the Cheela are a civilization that has only progressed to a very savage and early state in their development.
