“Tesla Prime and the Regulus Event” tells the story of a group of seven astronauts who embark on a mission to explore the distant and alien world of Proteus. Twenty-seven years later, the crew of Tesla Prime returns to find that the Earth has vanished. The only clues are a cryptic message left by an engineer on the Moon and a giant ring structure larger than the Earth itself. The woefully unprepared group of scientists and engineers must band together and find a way to save the human race from extinction. With the fate of the world teetering, a last minute replacement, Daxman Spinner, rises to become an unwilling anti-hero and Earth’s last hope in its darkest hour.
At its core, this story is an intelligent science fiction epic grounded in science fact based on my work at NASA/JPL, but it has much more. It’s a layered character driven novel with damaged heroes, romance, betrayal and a dash of dark humor.
