SciFi Meets History in Exciting Time-Travel Adventure with Holographic Talking Supercompute
Time-travel has long been the fantasy of humanity, but Jack Jacobs gets to experience the real journey, with some unexpected events along the way.
In the year 2177, Jack Jacobs, a gravity propulsion expert, is assigned to a Top Secret mission—the Advanced Gravity Drive project code-named Orion Nine. The day before the scheduled take-off of the government’s spaceship, he takes it for an unauthorized trial test. Without explanation, the forces of gravity, light and time-formulation cause an unexpected malfunction. Jacobs finds himself off-course with only his soft-spoken organic supercomputer Jennifer for company. They are forced to travel through space for many years before being able to return to earth.
When Jacobs and supercomputer Jennifer finally do return, they expect it to be the year 2199; instead, they find themselves a hundred years in the past. Upon analyzing their last time tunnel, they discover a time distortion not only shifted them into a new universe, but its cause is linked to an event in another galaxy, a galaxy their computer registers as discovered by Jack Jacobs. Jacobs cannot understand how such a discovery is possible when he has no memory of it.
In attempting to return to 2199, Jacobs and Jennifer only find themselves continually traveling back a century at a time to 2099, then 1999, 1899, 1799, etcetera. During these travels, they witness such interesting events as a conversation between George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson. But despite these illuminating adventures, Jacobs and Jennifer still try to get back to the present—ultimately they realize the only solution is to visit the distant galaxy Jacobs supposedly discovered. They must now trek across the universe to a mysterious galaxy millions of light years away. What they find there takes them where no one has ever gone before.
Author Abraham’s scientific background allows him to depict the futuristic technology required for time-travel in realistic and technical, yet comprehensible terms for the lay reader. His visionary writing inspires the imagination and the possibilities of humanity’s future. Readers will close the book, both enchanted by its magic and enthralled with science’s future potential. This third edition’s newly illustrated colored end-papers make “Jack Jacobs and the Doomsday Time Machine” a must-have science-fiction collectible.
