New Aaron Seven Adventures by Dennis Chamberland

I am about to complete Aaron Seven’s latest adventure – ABYSS OF SPACE. It should be available on the Quantum Editions website and other internet book and eBook outlets by January 2009.
"The parallel novel to Abyss of Elysium – Mars Wars. Here Aaron Seven daringly escapes earth with his family and friends. He rides into space through the raging fires of nuclear annihilation onboard an antique missile. And that is just the beginning. Now he has to steal an interplanetary spacecraft from earth orbit and venture a hundred million miles to Mars before his air and water run dry.”

Meanwhile, Aaron Seven is just getting ready for his next adventure, titled NIGHTFALL. Here is the plot that once again combines an Ocean and Space adventure complete with incredible engineering projects:

“The sun was about to fade behind a cloud. But the cloud was hundreds of billions of miles in diameter. It was a remnant of a long forgotten supernova twisted by countless encounters with stars and set adrift in the interstellar void. But when it encountered the solar system, it would block nearly all sunlight from the earth and the ensuing nightfall would endure for centuries. The planet was destined to be plunged into a nearly eternal night. Its oceans would freeze, its atmosphere would condense in a rain of liquid oxygen and nitrogen and flood the world below. No life could possibly exist on her surface and every organism on earth and in the oceans would inevitably die, frozen in the nightfall without end. Everyone was without hope – until Aaron Seven in his extraordinary genius conceived a brilliant idea. His plan could save a remnant of humanity that would carry on the human race – when and if the sunshine ever returned.”

Available from Dennis Chamberland and Quantum Editions in late 2009.

Jacques Piccard one f the 2oth Century's greatest explorers has died at age 86.
SWISS deep sea explorer and inventor Jacques Piccard, who holds the record for travelling to the deepest point underwater, died today at the age of 86. "One of the last great explorers of the 20th century, a true Captain Nemo who went deeper than any other man, Jacques Piccard passed away on Saturday, ... at his home on the edge of his beloved Lake Geneva,'' his son Bertrand said in a statement. Piccard, who was born in Brussels, together with Don Walsh reached the bottom of the Mariana Trench, 10,916m below sea level on January 23, 1960 - the farthest point underwater. He also witnessed living organisms at a depth of more than 11,000m below sea level, a discovery that led to a ban in nuclear waste dumping into the ocean. Piccard had also built four mid-depth submarines, including the first tourist submarine that carried passengers deep into Lake Geneva and carried on deep sea exploration up to the age of 82.

Piccard was an aquanaut not just a submariner. In 1969 he and five other explorers spent four weeks undersea in the Ben Franklin (PX-15) . The submersible had no motor and could only drift in the Gulf Stream. The project had the involvement of NASA who used it to study long term close confinement. The history of his family supports those who believe there's an explorer's gene. He father Auguste was an record holding aeronaut who with his twin brother Jean Fleix, was the first person to reach the stratosphere. Jaccques son Bertrand completed the first non stop circumnavigation of the world in a balloon . He is now working on the Solar Impulse project.
