Book Review: Aurora, when the lights went out

By Robert McCool

When a monster solar coronal mass ejection (CME) strikes the Earth it destroys all of the power grids in the world, leaving our Earth in the literal dark as the electricity disappears worldwide. This is what  occurs in David Koepp's second book titled Aurora (ISBN 978-0-06-291647-1). Koepp is the screenwriter of many popular movies, including the first two Jurassic Park releases, Mission: Impossible, and War of the Worlds,  plus many more, some of which he also directed.

By Cort Reynolds

Terry Miller, a 1972 Ada High School graduate, has lived a versatile life of adventure, from Vietnam veteran to policeman to car-racing Florida professor. Teaching has allowed him to pursue his great passions of auto racing and the study of criminology.

Born in Atlanta, he moved with his family to Ada in 1960 and grew up with three sisters and their parents, George and Louise. George was a long-time Ohio Northern University education professor who earned a degree from Duke in aeronautical engineering.
