Halfway through this book and I must say ... WOW! For anyone who loves fiction, and loves astronomy and cosmology, this is the ultimate book. It ties real theories into and epic sci-fi novel. Anyone else read it?

I haven't, but I shall get the book as soon as I can. I love reading sci-fi related to astronomy, particularly Isaac Asimov.

Asimov's three laws of robotics:

**A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. **
