Nuclear Testing

Enewetak Atoll, Marshall Islands, Micronesia

Enewetak Atoll, situated in the Ralik Chain of the Marshall Islands, consists of 40 islands with an area of only 2.26 square miles. In the decade spanning 1948 to 1958, the U.S. government conducted 43 nuclear tests. 'Mike' was the first test of a hydrogen bomb which vaporized an entire small island named Elugelab creating an immense crater.

Enwetak (or Eniwetok) Atoll in Micronesia is a center of conflict in TDE. The Main Island is where Centron has its operations base which seems to be involved in satellite tracking--very hush, hush.

Parry is the next island to the north and becomes the base for the PIG  computer while further to the north lies Rnit which is radioactive due to two nuclear tests conducted there named LaCrosse and Cactus. Since Runit is so radioactively dangerous, Eiger and Cummings believe it is an ideal location for the ANX virus development computer.

In real-life, I lead a team of techs to survey the craters as part of Professor John Isaacs vision of establishing aquaculture in the craters; it was his vision of putting trust back into the Trust Territory. 

I was shocked to learn later that one of the study craters near where we camped was filled with plutonium debris and capped with a concrete dome--which is now reported to be leaking. Wikipedia tells the story.

Met Chron New-Humans

Set in the year 2030, a Sci-Fi  Technothriller of a world near the global warming tipping point and humanity’s survival is threatened, from the author of Met-Chron Sanctuary and the Telepathic Dolphin Experiment.

Timing is everything. If the intern at the SpeeZees Lab hadn’t accidentally selected the wrong sequence of avatars in a training program, the world’s first New-Human would not have been 3D printed and brought to life.…and without Chron’s genius, the strategy of developing a space elevator to convey pods of seawater into space and generate snowfall over tropical seas, coastal cities around the world will face catastrophic flooding.

Furthermore, if Chron had not assisted her longevity research, Dr. Astra Sturtevant would never have made her game clinging discovery of how to control the genetic clock and arrest the aging process. Meanwhile, the AI androids that had mutated in the high RAD zones following the nuclear detonations in the Bay Area have launched campaigns to gain their independence and annihilate all organic humans.

The innovative pioneers that operate the Deep Space Mining Moonbase have a plan that will solve humanity’s problems. The question is will anyone out there listen?
