Welcome to Beyond the End of the World. My name is Aaron Dennis, and I will be presenting this published novel to you one chapter at time. The entire novel is free for download via Barnes and Noble online.
I was so into Star Trek as a kid – and the tragedy of lasting only 79 episodes – that I used to dream my own original episodes in REM sleep. Always awakened to the disappointment that the nocturnal adventure didn't really exist, it’s still unfathomable to me that when Star Trek : The Motion Picture came out, I didn’t go see it.
The history of female scientists is filled with stories of perseverance, ingenuity, and hard work. When it comes to the field of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), many people are concerned regarding the gender gap. Even now, everyone is still trying their best to lessen the gap and allow more women to contribute to the STEM field. Regardless of this issue, one cannot deny the fact that female scientists have always done much for the further discovery and betterment of the world.
Donald Trump, the NRA and Two Broke Girls – a lot of the things make me angry. But mention the hate some Trekkies have for the J.J. Abrams reboot of Star Trek, and my genesis wave cascades in fury. But I think I’ve found a reason on some counts for their lapse in logic.
History has demonstrated that the space race was the first endeavor of man – other than war – to challenge our entire scope of scientific and technological capabilities. The crowning moment in this challenge was when Apollo 11 travelled 260,000 miles in space, landed two astronauts on the Moon and returned safely.
