She also includes a section for teachers to work elements of the series into their lesson plans with great fantastic high level questions and explanations for each book and each chapter such as, “What do you think it would be like to be in a black hole?” In the series a black hole is used as a prison. Or, “What are some of the reasons that the habitable planets in an intergalactic society would employ space stations as points of entry?” Good brain questions. The type that get students synapses firing!
She includes her website which has an entire parents and educators page.
For sci-fi fans, teachers, students, parents the Star Trails Tetralogy and Compendium are a must read!
Marcha Fox wrote this as a work of fiction to accompany her Star Trails Tetralogy series, which I absolutely loved. As with her novels, her scientific terminology is accurate, though I am sure it is used in a fictional sense.
For instance, "Ballome: Portable structures formed from inflatable epoxy that cures and hardens in the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Used for temporary outposts on primitive worlds. Most contain basic heating and cooling systems and gel insulation that protects from most climates as well as plumbing. Usually have a galley kitchen, living area and two bedrooms equipped with built-in sleeping cylls." .... to the best of my knowledge, here on earth, we don't have the technology to fabricate inflatable epoxy into anything the size of a house, though I would love to see this happen.
The Compendium also includes information on star systems and an entire section devoted to Cyrarian weather, which is very useful, since in A Psilent Place Below, as well as other stories when the characters were on Cyrarian, the weather was a big factor in the story. Not surprisingly, there are also lesson plan suggestions, for the science that readers absorb as they read her Star Trails Tetralogy series - and of course, as a physics major, her emphasis is on physics.
