Die Titanic war bei ihrem Stapellauf das größte und modernste Schiff seiner Zeit. Das schwimmende Luxushotel bot Salons, Promenadendecks und prächtige Suiten. Theo, Tess und Quentin, das wissbegierige Fragezeichen, das mutige Ausrufezeichen und der quirlige Punkt, erforschen das Besondere dieses Schiffes, das als unsinkbar galt. Das neugierige Trio geht in diesem Hörspiel außerdem auf Spurensuche in der Tiefsee. Das berühmteste moderne Tauchboot der Welt, die ´´Alvin´´, hat Menschen sogar zum Wrack der Titanic gebracht. Und auf einer ihrer Missionen wurde eine sensationelle Entdeckung gemacht: die Schwarzen Raucher, heiße Quellen tief am Meeresgrund, wo sich fernab vom Sonnenlicht eine eigene Lebenswelt entwickeln konnte. 1.

April 15, 1912 Soon, Titanic´s voyage will come to a deadly end with the sinking of the unsinkable. This is the story of the final 48 hours of the RMS Titanic, its first and last voyage. The story is told in a compelling countdown that ends mere hours after the ship´s sinking. This book describes the last days, actions, and thoughts of architect Thomas Andrews and passenger Margaret Brown, known as the Unsinkable Molly Brown, as they interact with other passengers and crew members during these last 48 hours. While Miss Brown enjoys her cruise and her interactions with everyone onboard, Mr. Andrews is at first proud and then haunted by this stately ship. What starts out as a happy and joyous occasion soon turns to dread and despair at the news that the Titanic has hit an iceberg. Miss Brown and Mr. Andrews are on the same yet very different mission of saving passengers while forgoing themselves and their own personal demons and dangers. While chaos and panic ensue, lives will soon be saved and also lost as the Titanic breathes her last breath and gives Molly Brown and Thomas Andrews very different endings. What were Captain Smith´s and Ismay´s thoughts and actions during this horrific time? How could such a proud start turn into absolute horror? What are the consequences of the decision to forgo more lifeboats? How could an exciting voyage with world elite onboard turn into a horrific voyage of death? 1. Language: English. Narrator: J.

Tales of the Talking Picture is a fabulous science-fiction fantasy novel about a boy who comes into possession of an old oval portrait of a woman named Rhiannon Tanglewyst, who happens to be a witch who has been trapped within the picture for centuries. Rhiannon tells Matthew and his troublesome girlfriend, a Goth named Christina, fantastical tales from the future and the past; from a grisly and terrifying account of what really happened to the crew of the Mary Celeste, to the strange mission of a secret agent who must face a chilling foe in the guise of a child. The imaginative tales also cover battling wizards, the Titanic, the sinister Sunday King, the heart-warming tale of a boy who befriends a giant alien insect, and a petty crook who makes the mistake of trying on an electronic thinking cap - only to discover the ultimate answer to the universe. Tales of the Talking Picture is a guaranteed feel-good listen from one of England´s master storytellers, Tom Slemen! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Norman Gilligan.

In the Shadow of the Moon tells the story of the most exciting and challenging years in spaceflight, with two superpowers engaged in a titanic struggle to land one of their own people on the moon. Drawing on interviews with astronauts, cosmonauts, their families, technicians, and scientists, as well as rarely seen Soviet and American government documents, the authors craft a remarkable story of the golden age of spaceflight as both an intimate human experience and a rollicking global adventure. From the Gemini flights to the Soyuz space program to the earliest Apollo missions, including the legendary first moon landing, their book draws a richly detailed picture of the space race as an endeavor equally endowed with personal meaning and political significance. 1.

Titanic cult armies wage campaigns of galactic conquest in their fanatical search for wealth, dominance, glory, and truth. Forces from two of the largest cults have descended upon a formerly peaceful planet and laid waste to everything before them. Jacobite Knights in battle armor stalk the battlefields looking for insight and glory as multitudes of Synarchist legions destroy everything in their path in a holy mission to kill or convert all of humanity. The city of Parmesh has been ravaged by siege, and all that remains of the defenders is a ragtag brigade of stalwart marines who fight a bitter resistance against the two cult armies. The marines are in a race against time to evacuate the remaining civilian refugees, even as they scavenge for supplies and wage desperate war. Out of the chaos of battle a stranger appears, armed and dangerous and yet hunted by champions of both cults. If this new warrior is friend or foe remains to be seen. There is no choice but to fight on. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Glennon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/080585/bk_acx0_080585_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Trapped in the depths of Halley´s Comet, the Futuremen battle fourth-dimensional monsters in a titanic struggle to save the system´s solar energy! Captain Future learned much of what he knew from perhaps the oddest surrogate father in fiction - The Brain. Simon Wright, a brilliant scientist and companion to Curtis Newton´s father, became so riddled with age and sickness that the only option to continue his life meant literally living as a brain in a specially designed box. When Captain Future´s parents were killed, Wright not only serves as Captain Future´s mentor, but also as the leader of the trio of Futuremen who join Captain Future on his wild escapades. Grag is most definitely the brawn of the Futuremen. A robot constructed by the Brain and Captain Future´s father, Grag stands over seven feet tall and may be the strongest creation in the solar system. Constructed of ´´inert´´ metal, Grag is almost indestructible and powered by atomic energy deep in his chest. Grag´s greatest desire is to be considered human, a point that Otho tends to agitate him over again and again, leading to some of the funniest moments in the stories. Truly one of a kind, Otho is a unique android created by Captain Future´s father and the Brain. The synthetic man does not naturally resemble an Earthman, but Otho is well known for his mastery of disguise, a skill that has been useful for Captain Future on many occasions. Otho also is faster and more nimble than nearly any other being alive and he is responsible for teaching Captain Future much of what he knows of speed and agility. Otho also enjoys the danger of each mission they undertake, almost as much as he likes to antagonize the humorless Grag about not being human. Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the summer 1942 issue of Captain Future magazine, The Comet Kings is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Milton Bagby.
