Rendezvous with Rama
This is one of those books that ends leaving many unanswered questions. A comet heading towards our solar system is realized to be artifically made upon closer examination.
While impossible to imagine a cylindrical manufactured structure of that magnitude, man has to try to explore it. What Commander Norton and his crew discover inside Rama barely coincides with man's preformed opinions.
While Commander Norton's crew explores, back on the Moon, Mars, Mercury, and Earth, learned men watch and try to decide how to handle this. Each politician and scientist has a different idea of how to procede. The largest question is: What danger does Rama pose?
Arthur C. Clarke, one the the classic masters of the science fiction genre, leaves us with a well crafted book, a lot of questions, and the reminder "The Ramans do everything in threes."
