Book Description

The United Nations' Consortium for Aeronautic and Space Exploration (UNCASE) has just selected Michael S. Gibraltar as one of the elite crew for its 11th in a series of secret governmental (Seagu11) projects. A recent discovery in the frigid landscape of the Antarctic has altered the mission's target to a black hole at the very center of our Milky Way galaxy. At three million times the mass of our Sun, the hole is a behemoth of celestial proportions. Before embarking, however, Mike must complete space training and hone up on his sparse knowledge of the physics of black holes and the vagaries of light-speed space travel that the crew must endure. The enormous distances to be traveled will require the most advanced technologies that the 23rd century has to offer. The challenging experience will forever alter Mike's former views on everything from God to that of universal design.

In this, his first novel, Dr. Baumann enlightens as well as entertains as he takes you on a realistic sci-fi journey to the very center of our Milky Way galaxy.

Product Description

About the Author

T. "Lee" Baumann, M.D. is a "quantum spirituality" author and lecturer living in Birmingham, Alabama. He is also a medical doctor, holding certifications in internal medicine, geriatrics, and medical management. Beginning his spiritual journey as a religious skeptic in the 1970's, Dr. Baumann now writes books defending spirituality, based upon proven scientific doctrines. For instance, the world's major religions all describe God in terms of Light. Near-death experiences describe going to a light that is welcoming, intelligent, and loving. Quantum physics reveals that physical light is omnipresent (everywhere), omniscient (all-knowing), omnipotent, and even "conscious" - the result of light's peculiar quantum nature and existence outside of time. Lee is the author of God at the Speed of Light: The Melding of Science and Spirituality (one of the physics books to have inspired the popular CBS TV series "Joan of Arcadia"), Window to God: A Medical and Scientific Analysis of the Edgar Cayce Readings, The Akashic Light: Religion's Common Thread (a comparative religious text which examines the supernatural qualities of light throughout the world's religions), Matter to Mind to Consciousness: Anatomy of the E.L.F. (a scientific and medical explanation for our human awareness and thought--and also for many types of paranormal phenomena), and his Nondenominational Quantum Spirituality Manual for Hospice Patients and their Families.

4.0 out of 5 stars Independent Book Reviewers 21 Oct. 2010
By IBR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Stretching the limits of space and time, the science fiction adventure The Seagu11 Project, provides readers with a believable future reality as the backdrop for a series of adventures. When a select team of astronauts embarks on mankind's most ambitious space journey yet, the story takes the reader beyond what is known into what can only be imagined. Written by T. Lee Baumann, this book brings in lots of heavy science and theology, but never in such a way that the reader is lost or overwhelmed.

Set in the 23rd century on an Earth ruled by a word government and home to air vehicles known as pod cruisers, readers will discover both the familiar and the fantastic. Dr. Michael Gibraltar suffers significant loss when his young wife dies, but his sudden lack of family connections makes him attractive to the United Nations' Consortium for Aeronautic and Space Exploration. Selected to train for top-secret space missions as a medical officer, Gibraltar rediscovers a sense of purpose and quickly excels. He is made a member of team Seagu11, named for the eleventh project in UNCASE's string of space explorations.

Soon, a startling discovery of alien origins in the Antarctic thrusts the Seagu11 team into a groundbreaking journey towards an immense black hole deep into the center of the galaxy. Utilizing an amazing combination of suspended sleep and space travel technology, the Seagu11 team reach their destination and encounter beings from another place and dimension, forever changing the crew as they attempt to return home.

The Seagu11 Project delivers a satisfying read that science fiction lovers will enjoy, especially for those who hunger for real science to back up the fiction. Baumann, an accomplished author of other books that meld spirituality and science, deftly takes readers through plausible scenarios of a future Earth and the technology it would take to accomplish deep space travel. The ring of scientific credibility in this book will satisfy science fiction readers who dislike being sidetracked by too many implausible scenarios that take away from the plot.

As a main character, Gibraltar is nothing too surprising--a good man with a desire to contribute to something bigger than himself, a doctor seeking to do no harm to anyone and a being with relatively few flaws. By far the most developed character, the others who populate the story are deeply secondary, with none emerging nearly as prominently as Gibraltar. What the story may lack in interpersonal relationships and secondary character development is made up for with quick dialog and solid science. Indeed, just as Gibralter's mission is the primary focus of the Seagu11 team, so the book mostly focuses on the task at hand, with relationships as secondary.

For readers who enjoy the melding of deep science fiction theory with the exploration of deep theology, The Seagu11 Project is one book that skillfully brings them together to present the reader with thought-provoking possibilities that linger long after the last page.

2.0 out of 5 stars wtf?! 23 Mar. 2011

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this was a really good book, I might even go so far as to say great book, right up until the last chapter. No questions posed in the first two thirds of the book were answered and the story just ENDED. it was so abrupt I got whiplash. what a shame this could of been a truly great book. but alas, it only gets 2 stars due to its poor ending.
