“Ignorance Leads To Fear, Fear Leads To Hatred, And Hatred Leads To Violence. This Is The Equation.” ~ Ibn

Knowledge is power and applied knowledge is freedom.

Intelligence is about brainpower, whereas rational thinking is about control. Critical thinking skills are more important than IQ. Having a creative mind is not the same as intelligence. An individual can be far more creative than he or she is intelligent, or far more intelligent than creative. Applying the conventional thinking strategies of creative geniuses will make you more creative in your work and personal life.

Quantum Mechanics:
the branch of mechanics that deals with the mathematical description of the motion and interaction of subatomic particles, incorporating the concepts of quantization of energy, wave-particle duality, the uncertainty principle, and the correspondence principle.

Exo planets – Exoplanet

An exoplanet or extrasolar planet is a planet outside the Solar System. The first possible evidence of an exoplanet was noted in 1917 but was not recognized as such. The first confirmation of detection occurred in 1992. This was followed by the confirmation of a planet detected in 1988. As of 1 November 2019, there are 4,126 confirmed exoplanets in 3,067 systems, with 671 systems having more than one planet.

Interstellar Voyaging – Interstellar Travel
Interstellar travel is crewed or uncrewed travel between stars or planetary systems. Interstellar travel will be much more difficult than interplanetary spaceflight; the distances between the planets in the Solar System are less than 30 astronomical units (AU)whereas the distances between stars are typically hundreds of thousands of AU, and usually expressed in light-years. Because of the vastness of those distances, interstellar travel would require a high percentage of the speed of light; huge travel time, lasting from decades to millennia or longer. The speeds required for interstellar travel in a human lifetime far exceed what current methods of spacecraft propulsion can provide. Even with a hypothetically perfectly efficient propulsion system, the kinetic energy corresponding to those speeds is enormous by today’s standards of energy development. Moreover, collisions by the spacecraft with cosmic dust and gas can produce very dangerous effects both to passengers and the spacecraft itself. A number of strategies have been proposed to deal with these problems, ranging from giant arks that would carry entire societies and ecosystems, to microscopic space probes. Many different spacecraft propulsion systems have been proposed to give spacecraft the required speeds, including nuclear propulsion, beam-powered propulsion, and methods based on speculative physics. For both crewed and uncrewed interstellar travel, considerable technological and economic challenges need to be met. Even the most optimistic views about interstellar travel see it as only being feasible decades from now. However, in spite of the challenges, if or when interstellar travel is realised, a wide range of scientific benefits is expected. Most interstellar travel concepts require a developed space logistics system capable of moving millions of tons to a construction / operating location, and most would require gigawatt-scale power for construction or power (such as Star Wisp or Light Sail type concepts). Such a system could grow organically if space-based solar power became a significant component of Earth’s energy mix. Consumer demand for a multi-terawatt system would automatically create the necessary multi-million ton/year logistical system

Hazards

The crew of an interstellar ship would face several significant hazards, including the psychological effects of long-term isolation, the effects of exposure to ionizing radiation, and the physiological effects of weightlessness to the muscles, joints, bones, immune system, and eyes. There also exists the risk of impact by micrometeoroids and other space debris. These risks represent challenges that have yet to be overcome.

Generation ship https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_ship

A generation ship, or generation starship, is a hypothetical type of interstellar ark starship that travels at sub-light speed. Since such a ship might take centuries to thousands of years to reach even nearby stars, the original occupants of a generation ship would grow old and die, leaving their descendants to continue traveling.

Keywords

Make Your Book More Discoverable with Keywords

To make your book easier to find on Amazon, you need keywords that accurately portray your book’s content and reflect the words customers will use when they search. Along with factors like sales history and Amazon Best Sellers Rank, relevant keywords can boost your placement in search results on Amazon.com. Browse the topics below to learn more.
Keywords and CategoriesClick Here

Keywords:
01.) Mexican-American
02.) Inspirational Fiction
03.) Romantic
04.) Science Fantasy
05.) Tortured English
06.) General Fiction
07.) Fantasy
Search keywords help readers find your book when they browse the Amazon site. You can enter keywords or short phrases that describe your book and are relevant to its content. The best keywords are those that do not repeat words in the title, category, or description, as these are already used to help readers find your book. Some types of keywords are prohibited and may result in content being removed from sale. Learn more about KDP’s keyword rules.

Categories:
01.) Fiction > Action & Adventure
02.) Fiction > Hispanic & Latino
A browse category is the section of the Amazon site where users can find your book. Think of the browse category like the sections of a physical bookstore (fiction, history, and so on). You can select up to two browse categories for your book. Precise browse categorization helps readers find your book, so be sure to select the most appropriate categories for your book.
