Book Blurb

The year

is 2095. Voyager 1 launched in 1977 with a golden record – someone has found it and is sending a signal back to Earth. With a newly constructed fasterthan- light spaceship named Antariksh, and a crew which includes novices like Lt. Manisha, as well as seasoned professionals, including Commander Ryan, Captain Anara reaches the source of the signal at the nearest star to Earth – Proxima Centauri.

Before she can meet with the aliens, Anara must clear obstacles on her own ship, including a recalcitrant Artificial Intelligence and inexplicable radiation, which threatens the safety of the mission. The implications of what they find on planet Proxima B will resonate far beyond this first journey, exposing Earth to dangers on an unimaginable scale. And then Captain Anara finds out its creators buried a secret aboard Voyager 1.

Tech for the geek. Thrills for the action seeker. Mysteries for the detective. Science for the uninitiated.
