The Fountains of Paradise - Arthur Clarke.

Originally published:, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1979.

The fountains of paradise. No part of this book may be reproduced in any form or by any electronic or mechanical means, including. The Fountains of Paradise is the most considerable work of the latter part of Clarke’s career. Science Fiction Encyclopedia. Intellectually provocative. Sets the standard for science fiction that is both high-tech and high-class. Entertainment Weekly.

First published in 1979, Fountains of Paradise is one of Grandmaster Sir Arthur C. Clarke’s later books, but in its themes and style is reminiscent of some of his best work. Telling the story of an elevator into space, this also describes a flashback related story thousands of years earlier as a Sri Lankan king builds a palace high on the mountain top. Both celestial projects stretch the limits of human achievement and engineering ability and Clarke’s unique talent ties the two stories together. The Fountains of Paradise is about the impermanence of religion, achievement, and life; but also about perseverance and thriving against impermanence. This book is deserving of the Hugo and Nebula Awards that it received.

The Fountains of Paradise is a novel written by Arthur C. Clarke, which in 1980 won the Hugo and Nebula science fiction awards. Based around a technological breakthrough, it enables the construction of a space elevator. It consists of a point on the ground connected to another point in fixed orbit such as a satellite using a tether line. Platforms such as this can then rise or descend between these two points. The benefits are obvious; there would be no need for expensive and air polluting rockets, and therefore it would be a better way to travel into space

The "Fountains of Paradise" definitely fits that bill. A space elevator is an amazing idea because it will make spaceflight economical and safe. From that elevator a ring of habital space can be created. Clarke does a masterful job explaining the technology needed to build it, as well as the give and take of the politics of the construction and ultimate control of its use. As a side bonus, this is also a prequel to the fourth book in Clarke's "2001" series, . "3001" where the body of Frank Poole is found in space a thousand years later and brought back to life.

The story "Improving The Neighbourhood" has the distinction of being the first fiction published in the journal Nature.
