Hi All,
Good Sci-Fi book I have rereading is Seveneves by Neal Stepenson. In my opinion one of the best hard sci-fi books I have read (re-reading it waiting for the last Expanse). Just one thing is not really explained why does the Moon explode? (more details read the book! https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seveneves-Neal-Stephenson/dp/0008132542/ref=sr_1_1?crid=12X715L6V84QA&dchild=1&keywords=seveneves+by+neal+stephenson&qid=1614945992&sprefix=Seveneves%2Caps%2C263&sr=8-1). There was talk of it being adapted for TV by a streaming service (Netflicks?) for a series, I don't think a film would do it properly... Anyone else read it?
