Example text

Chuck y Susie me miraron como si no supieran qué decir. —Significa que es un ataque contra el que estamos indefensos. Stuxnet, el virus que supuestamente había acabado con las plantas de procesamiento nuclear de Irán en 2010, se había servido de unos diez díascero para entrar en los sistemas que atacó. Era uno de los primeros ejemplos de la nueva generación de sofisticadas ciberarmas. Costaba mucho tiempo y dinero crearlas, así que nadie habría activado esa sin tener un propósito en mente. —¿A qué te refieres con eso de que estamos indefensos contra esos ataques?

Exclamó ella, tomando de mis brazos al todavía adormilado pequeño—. Tiene fiebre, nyet? Le pasé las manos por la cabeza a mi hijo y noté el sudor en su pelo apelmazado. —Sí, me parece que sí. Irena atrajo a Luke hacia sí. —Tú no preocupes, yo cuido. Vete. —Gracias. Hacia la hora de comer estaré de vuelta. —Enarqué las cejas y, por el modo en que me sonrió, supe que encontraría un banquete a mi vuelta. Irena cerró la puerta, riendo. Un niño era algo asombroso.

Cuando el almirante Zheng sacó su flota de Suzhou, en China, en el año 1405, esta contaba con barcos tan grandes como los modernos portaaviones y transportaba a casi treinta mil soldados. —¿De veras? —Consulta las fuentes históricas —dijo Chuck—. Zheng estaba en contacto con nuestras Indias Occidentales cuatrocientos años antes de que Lewis y Clark llevaran allí de vacaciones a Sacagawea.
