The Omega Project (Book) - By Steve Alten

You can buy the book on Amazon here.
The Omega Project is an energy future based on cold fusion, managed by a high-tech “thinking” computer named GOLEM, designed to “preserve and protect the human race” by overseeing mining operations on the moon. When GOLEM inexplicably determines that the mission will take place on Europa, Jupiter’s ocean moon, the artificial intelligence selects six men and six women to make the journey – but the computer is hiding its true objective...
GOLEM’s creator, Robert “Ike” Eisenbraun, is assigned to join the Omega crew on a training mission in an underwater habitat beneath the Antarctic Ocean to determine if the computer has gone rogue. The mission requires the Omega crew – and Ike – to be cryogenically frozen for 30 days.
Ike awakens, only everything has changed. The ice is gone – and so is humanity; evolution has run amok. Alten’s extensive research into a post-human Earth is fascinating, but the reader must wait until the very last page to know whether Ike is dreaming or a cataclysm occurred while he was asleep – and 12 million years have passed!
