“For I have become death … the destroyer of worlds ….”

With that epochal Vedic scripture, Dr. Robert Oppenheimer, head of the top-secret World War II “Manhattan Project,” hurled the world into the vast uncertainties of “the Atomic Age” … 75 years ago this month, July 16, 1945 ….

But what if the United States’ breakneck atomic bomb development, followed by the creation of its even more devastating “fusion” follow-on, the dreaded “super hydrogen-device,” had, as a quiet side-effect, also revealed a terrifying planetary secret?:

That, just decades in the future — regardless of the then uncertain outcome of WWII — civilization itself would be totally destroyed … not by “global thermonuclear war” — but, by a once-in-a-million-year, gargantuan thermonuclear explosion–

On the Sun?!

Fortunately, the preceding scenario is total fiction — from the fertile mind and technical imagination of my guest tonight, award-winning “hard” science-fiction writer, Robert Sawyer.

Or … is it?

"Thank you very much! Your sparky anecdotes, sharp analysis, and agility in switching between the world of sci-fi and the real world made the program flow very smoothly." —Irene ChangBBC World Service, London

Robert J. Sawyer is one of only eight writers in history—and the only Canadian—to win all three of the science fiction field’s top awards for best novel of the year: the Hugo, which he won in 2003 for Hominids; the Nebula, which he won in 1996 for The Terminal Experiment; and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, which he won in 2006 for Mindscan. His latest novel is the #1 Locus bestseller Quantum Night. Rob lives in Toronto and was recently named a member of the Order of Canada, the highest civilian honor bestowed by the Canadian government. He is also past president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and one of the initial nine inductees into the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame.

"When asked who my favourite person in the world to interview is, my answer is always 100% Robert J. Sawyer, because he's so smart and his answers are always killer." —Teddy Wilson, host ofInnerSpace

Rob on page one of the Arts & Life section of Canada's National Post, on the debut of the TV series FlashForward, based on his novel of the same name.

    The reason Japan had low virus cases was that they were testing only a very few, no test no cases right, now they have pumped up the testing and the cases are rising, almost 600 cases in the last 2 days..

    here the moon was low on the sky line and appeared a reddish colour, about 4am local time, but intermitently obscured by heavy clouds

    Richard I found another 19.5 that you are likely aware of but I never made the connection until now. Apparently wearing a mask reduces your Oxygen intake for the normal 20% to 20.9%. Now the CDC, Govts, and Medical all say the minimum percent of Oxygen intake for proper breathing is 19.5% MINIMUM. The masks reduce that % to as low as 17% to 19% depending on the material they are made from. So anyway just saying there is yet another 19.5 that I am starting to see everywhere thanks to you. (grins) As for masks… I’m 70 I don’t care anymore what they say or do on MSMs cuz it’s all BS anyway. But if I am asked to wear a mask while grocery shopping I can deal with that for 15 – 30 minutes of shopping. I will NOT wear one while out doors as long as I am not within 6 feet of others as I do not ever want to be anywhere near disgusting Human beings, so 6 feet is not far enough to suit me. But Hey… that’s me. (grins again) Anyway 19.5 is turning out to be like 1:11, 11:11, 3:33, 4:44, and so on with these repeating numbers always in my face now like 19.5. Your fault! (grins)
