Amalthea: Roman

Der Mond explodierte ohne Vorwarnung und ohne erkennbaren Grund. Die Uhrzeit würde guy später als A+0. zero. zero oder schlicht Null bezeichnen …

05:03:12 Weltzeit. Die Stunde Null. Nach der Explosion des Mondes wütet über Jahrtausende ein Meteoritensturm, der die Erdoberfläche in eine unbewohnbare Wüstenei verwandelt. Um die Menschheit vor der Auslöschung zu bewahren, schickten die Nationen der Erde eine Flotte von Archen ins All. Der Asteroid Amalthea, der ursprünglich zu Forschungszwecken an eine internationale Raumstation angedockt worden struggle, soll der Kolonie als Schutzschild dienen. Doch das Leben im Weltraum fordert einen hohen Tribut, und die meisten Menschen sterben, bis schließlich nur noch sieben Frauen übrig sind, um eine neue Zivilisation zu begründen. 5000 Jahre später existieren zwei Völker: die Nachfahren derer, die die Katastrophe auf der Erde überlebt haben, sind primitive Siedler; die sieben Stämme der Nachkommen der Sieben Urmütter von der Raumstation hingegen hochkultiviert ― und sie machen sich auf, die Erde zu kolonialisieren …

Sample text

In the following months, using the images recorded in 1986 by Jameson and Skillen, we measured the proper motion of Teide 1, which also resulted consistent with membership in the Pleiades. Teide 1 was recorded in the 1986 images, although the object was not previously noticed/reported, possibly because it was located at the edge of the detector in a region where the photometry was considered uncertain. However, we found these images extremely useful for astrometry. Based on the photometric, spectroscopic and astrometric data, we arrived to the conclusion that the new object was the coolest- and lowest-luminosity dwarf ever found in the Pleiades.

This imposes several observational constraints on search techniques. One is that the search should be conducted as redward as possible in the optical band, or even better, at near infrared wavelengths. The technology to do this efficiently did not really come into its own until the 1990s. Red sensitivities of photographic film were not high, and CCDs were only G. edu V. 1007/978-3-319-01162-2 5, © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014 51 52 G.
