Battlefield Earth - Book Cover

If you’ve read the 1982 Sci-Fi book Battlefield Earth, you’ll probably remember that it talked about

Voyager, the actual NASA space probe that was launched in order to study the outer Solar System and

hopefully make contact with would-be alien lifeforms. The story was engaging, entertaining, and

perhaps even a bit too realistic. If you have not read Battlefield Earth you will very likely want to after

you watch this trailer that the publisher produced to relaunch the book on June 16, 2016, which is even

more realistic and believable now than ever before.

In real-life The Nasa Voyager Interstellar Mission carried a gold-plated audio-visual disc complete with

photos of Earth, scientific information, spoken greetings in 55 languages, and a collection of music, and

other information into deep space so that in the event that it was ever found by intelligent life forms

from other planetary systems they would come to understand our planet and civilization. Having

operated for over 38 years, the Voyager spacecraft still receives routine commands and returns data. In

2012 it became the first spacecraft to enter interstellar space. Conspiracy theorists believe Voyager

actually did encounter extraterrestrial lifeforms (as depicted in the book) but then again it is unlikely we

will ever find out.

Terl - Book Character

Rumor has it that followers and fans of the book are using the story line to create ‘life-like’ videos that

show how the story of discovering an alien life form might actually unfold online, a medium that

obviously didn’t exist when Voyager was launched. It is pretty likely that I will have access to those

videos once the word gets out that I’m writing about it here (and hopefully you’re sharing this on your

social channels). If I do get access to the videos, which rumor says they’ll be available around mid-June, I

will post them here and on my social channels for your entertainment and ‘deep pondering’.

Again, please feel free to share this post on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Linked, and

any other social channel you can think of. The Facebook page for Battlefield Earth has a lot of up-to- date

information, photos and videos as well (Click Here to visit the Battlefield Earth Facebook page.)
