For more than 50 years, mankind has been listening into space to pick up messages from extraterrestrial intelligences. So far in vain. Until today. Magnus Baumann, a highly intelligent young man with Asperger’s syndrome, develops a small private AI that identifies an alien signal in the available data. In fact, it is an extensive code with highly interesting information. What no one expects: This code is like an angler’s worm waiting for a fish to bite.
The truce between humans and microbes did not last. Natasha Saizewa manages to manipulate people at will with the help of microbes. But this power is not enough for her, she wants more. And that only exists under the ice of Antarctica.
The Science Force team also sets off for the ice continent. Deep under the ice, at the bottom of Lake Vostok, they make a discovery that no one had expected: “The Brain In The Depths”.
A strange phenomenon is sweeping the world. People everywhere are kissing – but not out of love, but because an inner compulsion is pushing them to do so. Ellen Faber and the Science Force team soon discover that there is much more behind this strange kissing phenomenon. People are about to lose their freedom. But the source of the danger is not just anywhere, every human carries it inside. Billions of microbes make it possible for us to live, but now they are demanding their reward. A plan millions of years old has been activated. And the Science Force must defeat an enemy that every human being depends on.
At the end, there is again a bonus “Fiction and Reality” section that explains some amazing scientific facts about the microbes inside us.
The new special unit Science Force has hardly been founded before the first mission starts: they are to put an end to forbidden gene experiments with human embryos. The seemingly harmless mission puts the team in mortal danger: the experiments are more advanced than they thought. In the Chernobyl exclusion zone, they encounter creatures that should not even exist.
⭐Nice spot to join the series.
