Sending codes to the universe on behalf of humans...
Included in the topic
The Galactic Empire, by Isaac AsimovThe best series of novels in human history"! It is a must-read sci-fi classic recommended by Liu Cixin, and the famous educator Professor Zhu Yongxin has also recommended many books, which have the greatest influence on Musk's boyly years.
Elon Musk, Tesla's founder, launched the rocket into space on his own.
In general, rocket launches, whether in Russia or China, are national projects that require national teams to complete. But Musk alone was able to send rockets into the sky, so in his own biography, "Silicon Valley Iron Man," he mentioned that his space dream was planted as a teenager while reading the great sci-fi writer Asimov's "Empire of the Galaxy."
On Musk's first rocket launch, he was joined by his Tesla and the Galactic Empire, which he read as a child.
In this Tesla sports car launched into space, a miniature version of the Base trilogy was released
What exactly is this work of God that sends codes to the universe on behalf of mankind?
Now the world's most famous entrepreneur, it is the teenage boy, the "Galaxy Empire" created. Back in 2013, Musk told the Guardian: "It was Asimov who taught me that 'civilization is going back and forth' and inspired me to pursue my dreams. And the "space exploration" program he's pushing for now, combined with "brain-machine" technology, was originally thought to have originated in the Galactic Empire.
It's not just Musk who's inspired by the Galactic Empire.
The 1977 classic "Star Wars" "steals" the idea of the book.
In 2009, the high-selling film "Avatar" copied the idea of the book.
There are also "Interstellar Crossing", "Landing on Mars" and other high-grossing films from this book.
Krugman, the 2008 Nobel laureate in economics, him admitted that his economic theory came from the revelations of the Galactic Empire.
Twitter founder Jack Dorsey has also said he has an "advertising strategy" in the Galaxy Empire. He repeatedly quoted lines from "The Galactic Empire": "The human brain does not have the mechanical memory of a photographic lens, but habitual forgetting, and useful information is precipitated so that you can make the best judgment about the future." "Now, "advertising has to make it point of view, think", has become Twitter's corporate culture.
Today's world-wide, intelligent technology in the field of "three laws of robotics":
The first law: robots must not harm humans, or sit back and wait for humans to be harmed;
Second Law: Unless the first law is violated, the robot must obey the orders of human beings;
The third law: Without violating the first and second laws, robots must protect themselves.
It comes from this book.
As readers of "Galaxy Empire: Base" grow into leaders from all walks of life (such as President George W. Bush, Nobel Laureate Krugman, NASA astronauts...). , this influence permeates every aspect of human culture.
This is the power of reading。
To this day, Galaxy Empire has become China's first foreign science fiction novel to sell more than a million dollars.
In China, local sci-fi writers, represented by Liu Cixin, are equally fond of Asimov, author of "The Galactic Empire": "I dare say Asimov is definitely the most-read and well-known sci-fi writer in China." The human history of the Milky Way, built on sci-fi, is long but must-read for sci-fi fans. "
Asimov's unreponsible influence on future generations is exactly what Clarke, a life friend and author of SpaceWalk, summed it up: "Ladies and gentlemen, there is only one Asimov in the world." "
Asimov was born in the late winter of Petrograd, Russia, in 1920, and later settled with his family in Brooklyn, USA. He was unusually smart from an early age, taking "IQ tests" with a total score of about 160 (the average person has an IQ of 80) and attending Columbia University at the age of 15.
Asimov was one of the representatives of the golden age of American science fiction. He has won 7 Hugo Awards, 2 Nebula Awards and The Nebula Award Lifetime Achievement Award Master Award. With Jules Verne, Herbert George Wells and called the sci-fi history of the Big Three.
At the same time, he loves writing more than anything else, "working 12 hours without feeling tired on a typewriter." In Asimov's more than 40 years of creative career, has written more than 500 books, covering almost all aspects of human life, the world from ancient times, from dinosaurs to subatomics to the universe, from popular novels to the history of the Roman Empire, from popular science books to the Far East millennium history, from the Bible guide, to scientific guide, to the guide to the life of the sexes ...
It is therefore revered by readers all over the world as "God-like man".
And his most famous masterpiece was voted the best-looking series in human history, the Galactic Empire series!
This is a very rare, large but super-good-looking book. In the book, Asimov builds a Galactic Empire spanning 100,000 light-years, from its rise and fall, telling the story of humanity's past, present and future.
Map of the Galactic Empire
At the opening of the story, with the help of robots, humans rapidly spread in the Milky Way, with their indelible ignorance and wisdom, greed and conscience, ascended to a desolate planet, and the Milky Way into a long Interstellar War era, until the entire Milky Way was unified, the rise of the Galactic Empire ...
Later, the Galactic Empire faced a crisis of destruction, high-tech local lords, ambitious imperial generals, and even muted men who could control human thought... There is a constant feud.
In his novel, Asimov shows unprecedented deep thinking and alerting about the future human-machine relationship, and stands from the perspective of all mankind, puts forward the forward-looking law mentioned above - the famous "Three Laws of Robotics".
Today, as we enter the new 1920s, we feel more strongly that we live in the "future that has happened". So it is necessary to revisit Asimov from time to time, and those who have the imagination.
If you want to read sci-fi, it's recommended that you start with this set of top classics.
Asimov's "Empire of the Galaxy" is a large series, in addition to "Base" series 7 books, there are "robot series" 5 books, and "Empire series" 3 books.
Base Seven, Robot Five, Empire Trilogy
This set of books is also a designated must-read in the seventh grade. Human development to today, by countless human elites proved that the truth is "imagination is more important than knowledge", "creativity is more important than knowledge." Asimov's cow-to-explosion imagination is bound to be subtly in the child's life, has an inestimable effect on the child's life, must be able to stimulate the children's imagination and creativity, in the children's hearts to plant a seed about space, a sci-fi seed.
It's been two and a half years since Musk's rocket launched, and I don't know where the "Interstellar 俠" driving Roadster is now in the Galactic Empire. I suspect that wherever he goes, the Galaxy Empire he brought with him will be loved by the inhabitants of the Empire! Because it's so wonderful!
