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.
