    Paperback ¶ Tau Zero MOBI º zero free, Tau Zero eBookThis CLASSY SF CLASSIC concernimg a cadre of colonists setting sail to colonize a compatible star using an interstellar “Bussard Ramjet” is a superior sample of Hard science fiction For those of you unscienceynon nerdy types who are unfamilar with what a Bussard Ramjet is I have put together the following DETAILED explanation which should explain everythingmake sensegreat My overall rating is really based on balancing what I thought were some mind wrecking and very well described science fiction concepts with some pretty weak bordering on dull characters that prevented me from ever being truly drawn

    Paperback ¶ Tau Zero MOBI º zero free, Tau Zero eBookTau zeroPoul Anderson is a writer's writer David Brin Vernor Vinge and others swear by him and Vinge even dedicated his epic A Deepness in the Sky to him His influence on their work is fairly obvious Anderson knew his science and was able to employ that knowledge to max effect in his fiction He was also a natural story teller who never neglected the human element in his sf storiesTau Zero is I believe what veteran sf readers would call diamond hard sf where all the science in the book is based on real world science and its application in the narrative is entirely plausible So no teleportation snarky robots or little green men I have to admit a lot of the interstellar astronautics theory and other scientific details went whoosh right over my head yet somehow Anderson always ensured that the story is never incomprehensible I also learned a lot about time di
