Outer Cryo Worlds


Outer Cryo Worlds is a book about the fascinating world of celestial bodies with cryo, or freezing conditions.

For example, with average temperatures about 200 degrees colder than Earth’s, Saturn’s moon Titan is a cryo world, one with astoundingly different sights, textures and physical forces. With such stark differences to the world, we are accustomed to, cryo worlds create a whole new universe for our imaginations, with new sightseeing adventures, sport activity potential and, who knows, maybe even extraterrestrial life.

The book familiarises the reader with the concept of outer cryo worlds and their mesmerising nature. With amusing anecdotes about cryogenics and celestial bodies, it helps spark imagination and curiosity to really bring these worlds to life. Based on real facts that we know about Outer Cryo Worlds, the book takes the reader on a vivid imaginary journey of flying with tech-wings in Titan’s atmosphere or swimming in its liquid methane lakes in futuristic suits.

It vividly paints the picture of what it's like to open a bottle of champagne on conquering Olympus Mons on Mars. The book also shares the author’s long-standing fascination with effects low temperatures have on life. It starts with a simple question: what happens to living organisms at low temperatures. Based on what we know about life in the deep waters of Earth, the author speculates what life would look like if it was sparked in oceans that might exist under the ice crusts of Jovian planets moons, inviting the readers on an imaginary mission of replacing tracking buoys attached to a gigantic snailfish-like creature in the abyss of Europa Ocean.

imaginative and ridiculous, but most of the time genuinely scientific travel guide for those who may find themselves on Mars, or Titan or Enceladus’ South Pole, with a detailed description of local walks, boating (and floating) lakes and flora and fauna species

It is a perfectly cozy book to delve into while relaxing by a fireplace with a glass of something strong, dreaming of beautiful distant worlds. An interesting thought experiment awaits you every turn of the page spiced up with facts and thoughts of a physics expert.

A charming book heart warming and full of wonder and imagination. Thanks

Igor manages to create a fantastic vision of the future, whilst still being grounded in currently known scientific fact.

It is the mark of a great mind to be able to consider not only “what is” but also “what could be”. Igor dishes out page after page of fantastical locations and landscapes (full of grand vistas, and carefully considered details), whilst explaining how a large amount of the visions presented can be explained by our current understanding of Cryogenics. Furthermore, he hypothesises on how the challenges presented could be overcome by modern day (or very near future) technology.

Overall, I found the book to be enjoyable to read, and full of hope for the future of humanity as we begin our journey towards the heavens.
