A survival story that follows a sobering catastrophe hunt, revealing the repeated mass extinctions on our own planet and evidence of the sudden vast changes that have occurred on the others we can observe. Revealing a bigger ecology, it accepts in cosmological terms we may be occupying the Titanic, uninsured, without steering or radar and with no means of collision avoidance. We can no longer assume we are in a safe harbour and must consider both the science and the inevitability of a show stopper. It highlights the role of deep strategy, rational foresight, sacrifice and the demands of collective agency across generations required to continue our journey. The alternative is a chilling report: Ship destroyed, no survivors, cause unknown at this time.
