CONTAINMENT CHRISTIAN CANTRELL PDF

But after I finished Containment I was just thrilled. I actually wanted more. Yes, there is a large amount of detail when it comes to the technology… but it is a SCIENCE fiction book, so expect to have some kind of science in it. The things that Cantrell chose to explain in detail made the book better in my opinion by allowing my mind to not wander and wonder how or why something worked the way it did. On to characters — they were all very believable with a few twists and turns included.

A brilliant young scientist and one of the first humans born on Venus, Arik works tirelessly to perfect the science of artificial photosynthesis, a project crucial to the future of his home, V1.

As Arik works against time, he begins to untangle the threads of his accident, which seem inextricably linked to what lies outside the protective walls of V1—a world where the caustic atmosphere and extreme heat make all forms of known life impossible.

Venus Colonists Struggle With Containment

I'm not a huge fan of horror fiction myself, and lately I find myself reading less sci-fi and more literary fiction and a whole lot of middle-grade fiction. But I do appreciate a good sci-fi tale from time to time. Containment is a hard sci-fi book from first-time novelist Christian Cantrell. It's the story of the first permanent human colony in space — more specifically, on Venus. Cantrell's future plays out in a familiar fashion: our consumption of both energy and material resources eventually screws up the planet, though not before we finally manage some interplanetary travel. But what happens after life on Earth falls to pieces is a little different. For various reasons explained later in the book , we end up on Venus with a small colony of a thousand people, hand-picked to be humanity's best chance at survival.

Containment

As Earth's ability to support human life diminishes, the Global Space Agency is formed with a single mandate: protect humanity from extinction by colonizing the solar system. Venus, being almost the same mass as Earth, is chosen over Mars as humanity's first permanent steppingstone into the universe. Arik Ockley is part of the first generation to be born and raised off-Earth. After a puzzling accident, Arik wakes up to find that his wife is three months pregnant. Since the colony's environmental systems cannot safely support any increases in population, Arik immediately resumes his work on AP, or artificial photosynthesis, in order to save the life of his unborn child.
