Description: A catastrophic event renders the earth a ticking time bomb. In a feverish race against the inevitable, nations around the globe band together to devise an ambitious plan to ensure the survival of humanity far beyond our atmosphere, in outer space.

But the complexities and unpredictability of human nature coupled with unforeseen challenges and dangers threaten the intrepid pioneers, until only a handful of survivors remain . . .

Five thousand years later, their progeny—seven distinct races now three billion strong—embark on yet another audacious journey into the unknown . . . to an alien world utterly transformed by cataclysm and time: Earth.

  "How do you tell the world it's going to die?"

Answer: like this – Bryan Ferry A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall or this Jay Sean Ft. Lil’ Wayne – Sky is Falling Down

Seveneves is Chicken Licken‘s worst nightmare, I kid you not. This must be apex of sci-fi published 2015 and I fully recommend as it was so thought provoking.

The seven Eves are:

Dinah MacQuarie
Ivy Xiao
Moira Crewe
Tekla Alekseyevna Ilyushina
Julia Bliss Flaherty
Aida
Camila

At the eleven and half hour point (~35%), the earth begins to burn, and Titanic fashion the orchestra keeps playing for as long as possible. A gulp moment.
