About the Book

In the year 2031, a robot probe detects traces of biological activity on Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons. This sensational discovery shows that there is indeed evidence of extraterrestrial life. Fifteen years later, a hurriedly built spacecraft sets out on the long journey to the ringed planet and its moon.

The international crew is not just facing a difficult twenty-seven months: if the spacecraft manages to make it to Enceladus without incident it must use a drillship to penetrate the kilometer-thick sheet of ice that entombs the moon. If life does indeed exist on Enceladus, it could only be at the bottom of the salty, ice covered ocean, which formed billions of years ago.

However, shortly after takeoff disaster strikes the mission, and the chances of the crew making it to Enceladus, let alone back home, look grim.

From internationally best-selling hard science fiction author Brandon Q. Morris comes a new novel for hard science fiction enthusiasts. As a physicist and space specialist, Morris describes the journey of the international expedition through the hostile vacuum of space, using the latest scientific findings and technology trends as his inspiration. This isn’t a What If book, this is a When Will book.

READ THIS !!! I’ve just finished reading the Enceladus Mission by Brandon Q Morris. An excellent book, one of the best science fiction stories I have read in a ling time. Brandon is out there with the best. His characters are real and the story unfolds at a pace steady enough to keep you looking round the next corner, but not so fast as to make you say “this is just getting silly”. The technology is plausible and viable, the people are believable, and the story is exciting – what more can you ask of a book.Whatever you’re going to read next, put it aside and try this.

Well researched and written. Great book. Buying the next one now! Amazing book. I’m new to hard sci fi and what attracted me was the Martian as I really liked the scientific side of it even though I am by no means particularly scientific. Well written.

My best recent Sci Fi read! Absolutely love the authentic science, which neither overwhelmed nor (kiddyfied).The concept was believable, the characters were ‘interesting’, it was very obvious the author was familiar with the ideas of possible science.My first sci-fi read was either Issac Asimov or Arthur C. Clarke, I’ve moved through some of the greats over the years; Frank Herbert; Kim Stanley Robinson; Brian Aldiss; even a Doris Lessing & many more. Brandon Q. Morris is right up amongst the best if all his books come up to the standard of The Enceladus Mission, I for one will be very pleased to have found him.

Can’t wait for the next story. Finding realistic and readable hard scifi books has become very difficult, but I have no hesitation in recommending the Enceladus Mission. I’m looking forward to more.
