Ark: Asteroid Impact
Ark: Asteroid Impact
Book 1 of the Ark Asteroid Trilogy
(March 4, 1937 – May 1, 2019)
Astronomers closely monitor asteroids and other hurtling objects that approach our planet from space because of the potential cataclysm that would result from a collision with the Earth's surface. Physicists, geologists, ecologists and other scientists grimly contemplate the environmental upheaval that an impact would trigger. Internationally recognized physicist Thomas A. Cahill, Ph.D., terrifyingly transformed one potential scenario into a science fiction thriller — his second novel published under the EditPros LLC imprint.
The book, Ark: Asteroid Impact, is a gripping story about a band of Californians who take refuge and manage to survive the calamitous effects of the collision of a large asteroid with the Earth. The devastating impact shatters civilization and eradicates nearly all forms of plant and animal life on the planet. The book describes in vivid detail the survival struggles and ingenuity of refugees who find themselves marooned in the forbidding, barren, frozen environment that envelops Earth following the colossal impact.
The "Ark" in the title alludes to the quest of the survivors to rebuild civilization. They scavenge the meager resources at their disposal to improvise shelter from the punishing cold, to generate electricity, to supply food, and to devise means of transportation to search for a more suitable climate, as well as to find other survivors.
