As read on BBC Radio 4's Book of the Week. Imagine you have survived an apocalypse. Civilization as you knew it is no more. What will life be like and how will you cope? In 2006, Dylan Evans set out to answer these questions. He left his job in a high-tech robotics lab, moved to the Scottish Highlands and founded a community called The Utopia Experiment. There, together with an eclectic assortment of volunteers, he tried to live out a scenario of global collapse, free from modern technology and comforts. Within a year, Evans found himself detained in a psychiatric hospital, shattered and depressed, trying to figure out what had gone wrong. In The Utopia Experiment he tells his own extraordinary story: his frenzied early enthusiasm for this unusual project, the many challenges of post-apocalyptic living, his descent into madness and his gradual recovery. In the process, he learns some hard lessons about himself and about life, and comes to see the modern world he abandoned in a new light. 'A gripping, slow-motion car crash. You can't take your eyes off it' Julian Baggini, Financial Times 'It radiates an intense intelligence and a candour that is never less than touching and, sometimes, downright heartrending' Daily Mail 'Extraordinary . . . both frightening and compelling' GQ

A remarkable, intense portrait of the robotic subculture and the challenging quest for robot autonomy. The high bay at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University is alive and hyper night and day with the likes of Hyperion, which traversed the Antarctic, and Zoe, the world’s first robot scientist, now back home. Robot Segways learn to play soccer, while other robots go on treasure hunts or are destined for hospitals and museums. Dozens of cavorting mechanical creatures, along with tangles of wire, tools, and computer innards are scattered haphazardly. All of these zipping and zooming gizmos are controlled by disheveled young men sitting on the floor, folding chairs, or tool cases, or huddled over laptops squinting into displays with manic intensity. Award-winning author Lee Gutkind immersed himself in this frenzied subculture, following these young roboticists and their bold conceptual machines from Pittsburgh to NASA and to the most barren and arid desert on earth. He makes intelligible their discoveries and stumbling points in this lively behind-the-scenes work.

A U.S. naval base is hidden among the few hundred islands of the Bahamas. Base Commander Jason Roberts relies on an old friends son, Lieutenant Billy Anderson, for answers to their incredible discovery. Andersons research team tries to locate, track, and calculate the alien crafts final underwater destination. Tracking the craft had been difficult until Andersons team installed upgrades to their current technology. Depth of the ocean offshore from the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center added to the difficulty in acquiring and tracking of the unidentified craft. The terminal flight of Starfish is salvaged under the cloak of darkness by the USS Grapple. The transfer of the craft to the base had to be conducted underwater, preventing Russian satellite coverage from viewing their newly acquired treasure. Lieutenant Anderson leads his team to complete the salvage operation, dissecting its technology. During the initial inspection of the alien ship, he found something that would change his life and career path. Why a deceptive colleague revealing secret technology to the Russians may change industries on Earth. Could he be caught? What meaning could the artifact found on the lunar surface have? What secret would lead to murder on the ISS? How could a murder look like an accident and be kept secret? The lunar mining facility is now operational. The interim docking facility can now handle the transfer of lunar materials back to Earth. Expansion for further mining and exploration outweighs the cost of supporting the aging ISS.
