"This Apple of Eden will be understood. It must be... Is it a weapon? Is it a catalogue? Is it somehow both?"
―Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's thoughts on the Apple of Eden 2.[src]-[m]

The Apples of Eden are sphere-shaped pieces of Isu technology. Having long outlasted their creators, the Apples are featured prominently, although cryptically, throughout recorded history as the cause of several "divine" and "superhuman" events, including Adam and Eve being cast out of Eden, the parting of the Red Sea, and the Trojan War.

During ancient times, the Order of the Ancients and the Hidden Ones referred to the Apple of Eden as the Orb.


"This... piece of silver cast out Adam and Eve. It turned staves into snakes. Parted and closed the Red Sea. Eris used it to start the Trojan War; and with it, a poor carpenter turned water into wine."
―Al Mualim about an Apple, 1191.[src]-[m]

Long before mankind existed, the Isu, a civilization of technologically advanced beings inhabited Earth. They created humanity, and enslaved them by modifying their brains to be obedient in the presence of a Piece of Eden. For some time there was a forced peace, until two human-Isu hybrids, Adam and Eve, stole one of the Pieces, an Apple,[19] and incited the Human-Isu War.[4]

As all were too preoccupied by the war to see any other threat, a major solar flare impacted the Earth, triggering the Great Catastrophe and significantly damaging both mankind and their makers. The Isu slowly became extinct, while mankind grew and populated the Earth, seeing their predecessors as myths and gods.[10][4][20]

The Pieces of Eden were not destroyed by the blast, and throughout time humans began recovering them, also causing an ideological divide, resulting in the formation of two groups, now referred to as the Templars and the Assassins. It is the Templars' aim to restore peace in the way the Isu had once done—forced by the Pieces—whereas the Assassins, who fight for freedom and a flawed but unshackled humanity, put free will above order. Many decades have gone by as the war continues between Templars and Assassins, both knowing the importance of the Pieces, especially the Apple, to reach their goal.[1][4]

To date, the Apples are featured as the most recognizable of the Pieces of Eden, being favored by Abstergo Industries in their plan of establishing a New World Order, as some other Pieces were known to be able to create time paradoxes.[4]

Powers and capabilities

"Those subjected to [the Apple]'s glow are promised all that they desire. It asks only one thing in return: complete and total obedience. And who can truly refuse? It is temptation incarnate."
―Altaïr's Codex, page 1.[src]-[m]
AC3 Juno Enthrallment Solution

A projection of humans being controlled with an Apple of Eden

The Apples were designed to be able to project images, conjure realistic illusions, and even turn thought into reality; hence, they were used by many great rulers throughout history, proving the efficacy of their powers.[4]

When the Isu created humanity, they bred within their brains hidden neurotransmitters. The Apples can interface with these neurotransmitters to issue commands to the human brain, thus allowing them mental control over humans. However, humans with traces of Isu genes were not born with the neurotransmitters and thus were immune to the Apple's mental manipulation powers, but they were still susceptible to its physical effects.[1][4]

At times, those with mixed genes showed immense resistance—ranging from minor resistance to the point of outright total immunity—to physical control after coming into contact with its power. This was seen in the case of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad who, after being restrained by Al Mualim using the Apple, was completely unmoved and unharmed by its effects when it fell into the hands of Abbas Sofian. In modern times, humans themselves had already started research on the brain, comparing them to those of other animals, seeing that they were not like the other animals, but not knowing the reason for why.[4]

ACIII-Warn 14

King Washington using an Apple as a scepter

The Apple, as exemplified through King Washington's use, was also capable of emitting energy blasts similar to the Sword of Eden, albeit on a weaker scale. The illusions created by the Apple could also cause physical harm on the opponent, stunning them with a blast of energy upon contact. Furthermore, it was capable of influencing people even when no one was using it, an example being an illusion cast by the Apple in an attempt to influence Washington.[9]

One Apple of Eden in particular was shown to be able to imbue objects with mystical power, giving the Head of Saint Denis the ability to cast terrifying illusions.[2] During the Mongol assault on Masyaf, Altaïr used the Apple's energy to conjure up golden tangible-holographic apparitions of Assassins to repel the Mongol attack.[6] During the alternative timeline of King Washington, he was able to use the apple to manipulate spherical balls of energy and even project blasts of energy.[9]


Ezio using an Apple and the Papal Staff to unlock the Vatican Vault

All the Apples could presumably be used in conjunction with a Staff of Eden, though there is only one solid example: the Apple of Eden 6. Ezio Auditore da Firenze used the two Pieces of Eden to open the Vatican Vault, before taking the Apple, and losing the Staff as it was pulled into the ground.[4]

Apples also contained technological knowledge used by the Isu. Like many other Pieces, they were able to "communicate" with people, showing them advanced technology and what is needed in their construction.[10] A good example of this was Leonardo da Vinci, who studied one of the Apples and created war machines and several other weapons ahead of his time.[10] There were only six known Apples, one of which had been destroyed in the DIA satellite accident.[4]

Known Apples of Eden

"Unclaimed" Apples of Eden

Apple of Eden #1

Main article: Apple of Eden 1

Located in the Saint-Denis Temple in France, this Apple was first acquired by Saint Denis of Paris, a Roman bishop during the 3rd century CE. After his death, one of his successors created the Head of Saint Denis to house the artifact before returning it to the Temple.[21] In the 12th century, the abbot of Saint-Denis, Suger, recovered the Apple and used the knowledge gained from it to create a sword.[2]

ACU Sphere of Eden

Arno Dorian holding the Apple of Eden 1

During the French Revolution, the Apple was sought by Napoleon Bonaparte, who employed raiders to retrieve it from the Saint-Denis Temple. However, the artifact was recovered by the former French Assassin Arno Dorian, who then had it delivered to the Assassin Brotherhood in Cairo.[2] Napoleon later travelled to Egypt to claim the Apple and was successful in his endeavor, using the artifact's power to become Emperor of France in 1804.[22]

By the early 20th century, the Apple had ended up in the possession of Harry Houdini, a magician who used it to create his "impossible" stunts. In 1926, he was assassinated by Templars who sought to acquire the artifact, though his death was commonly believed to have been caused by a ruptured appendix.[23]

Later, the Apple was used in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, as a means of producing a "Phantom on the Hill" effect, making the prosecution of Lee Harvey Oswald more difficult, and disguising the intentions of the assassination. The current location of this Apple is unknown.[14]

Apple of Eden #3

AC3 Washington Apple Talk

The earliest known human possessors of this Apple were the Freemasons, who brought it over from Europe to the New World.[23] General George Washington, a Freemason, recovered the artifact during the Siege of Yorktown at the end of American Revolutionary War. It began to give him nightmares of a parallel universe where he used its power to rule America as a king, so he gave it to the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton, who dropped it into the sea.[9]

By the 20th century, the Apple had been recovered, and Franklin D. Roosevelt had it in his possession.[23] He, along with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin, were later manipulated by the Templars into starting World War II.[24]

ACBs - Greer holding Apple

William Greer holding the President's Apple following Kennedy's assassination

By the 1960s, the Apple was in the possession of John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated by the Templar William King Harvey through the proxy of the Assassin Bloodstone Unit. One of the unit's members members, William Greer, used the Apple of Eden 2 and drove Kennedy into a trap in Dallas. Greer then took the President's Apple but was confronted by Alekseï Gavrani, a former member of the Bloodstone Unit. Gavrani took the artifact and entrusted it to Harvey, unaware of his treachery as Harvey was also an Assassin.[17]

The Apple of Eden 3 was subsequently given to Kennedy's Presidential successor, Lyndon B. Johnson, who was secretly a Templar. Johnson pushed for the Apollo 11 project, which saw the successful retrieval of another Apple from the moon.[25]

Apple of Eden #5

The retrieval of the Apple of Eden 5

The Apple of Eden 5 was sent into space by the Isu as part of their efforts to prevent the Great Catastrophe, but their attempts ultimately failed.[3] Following this, the Apple remained on the moon until 1969, when it was recovered by the Templars through NASA's Apollo 11 project.[25]

Apple of Eden #6

Main article: Apple of Eden 6

This Apple was possessed by the Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II during his conquest of Constantinople. His son Cem subsequently hid it in the Templar Archive on Cyprus, where it came into Templar and then Assassin possession at the end of the 15th century, before falling into the hands of Girolamo Savonarola.[26] The Apple was retaken by Ezio in 1498, who later used it in conjunction with the Papal Staff of Eden to open the Vatican Vault, where he spoke to a hologram of the Isu Minerva.[4]

Demilitarization 5

Ezio Auditore holding the Apple of Eden 6

During the Siege of Monteriggioni, Ezio lent the Apple to his uncle Mario Auditore, who kept it safe as Ezio protected the town. However, Mario was captured and killed by the Templar Cesare Borgia, who would take the Apple and give it to Leonardo da Vinci for study so the inventor could supply him with war machines.[10]

The Apple was eventually stolen once more by Rodrigo Borgia, who hid it at St. Peter's Basilica, where Ezio found it and used it to exterminate Cesare's followers before defeating Cesare himself. Later in his life, Ezio stored the artifact in a vault beneath Santa Maria in Aracoeli; the Apple would remain hidden there until 2012, when Desmond Miles and his fellow Assassins uncovered its location.[10]

However, upon retrieving the Apple, Desmond was forced by Juno to kill his fellow Assassin Lucy Stillman, who was secretly a Templar double agent. He subsequently fell into a coma, with the artifact being kept safe until his eventual awakening.[10] Desmond and the other Assassins later used the Apple to open the door to the Grand Temple, and then to assault Abstergo's facility in Rome. While Desmond initially planned to use the Apple to ransom for his captive father, William, he ended up using its power to force both Warren Vidic and any guards standing in his way to shoot themselves. Following Desmond's sacrifice to prevent the Second Disaster,[3] the Apple was taken by William and it currently remains in Assassin possession.[16]

"Claimed" Apples of Eden

Aguilar's Apple

ACM Apple of Eden Rikkin

The first known human to possess the Apple was Muhammad XII of Granada, who was forced to hand it over to Grand Inquisitor and Templar Tomás de Torquemada in 1492 when the latter captured Muhammad's son, Prince Ahmed. The artifact did not stay in his possession for very long, however, as Assassins Aguilar de Nerha and Maria immediately launched an attack to take back the Apple.[18]

While Maria died in the ensuing battle, Aguilar was able to escape with the artifact and later gave it to Assassin ally Christopher Columbus, who took it with him as he set sail for the New World. The Apple would stay with Columbus until his death, at which point the Piece of Eden accompanied his remains back to the Seville Cathedral in Spain, where they were buried.[18]

In 2016, the Apple was recovered by the Templars after they used Callum Lynch to relive Aguilar's memories. However, when Alan Rikkin unveiled the artifact in front of the Council of Elders in London, he was assassinated by Callum, who took the Apple and made his escape along with fellow Assassins Moussa and Lin.[18]

Akhenaten's Apple

Main article: Akhenaten's Apple of Eden
ACO Isidora Apple

Isidora holding the Aten

This Apple of Eden was found by the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten at some point during his reign. Believing that the relic was Aten himself, he and his wife Nefertiti introduced a monotheistic religion centered around the artifact. After both Akhenaten's and Nefertiti's death, the Apple was handed down to their son Tutankhamun. Refusing to continue the worship of the Aten, the Tutankhamun charged the High Priests of Amun in Thebes with the Apple's care.[11]

By the 1st century BCE, the Apple was still in the possession of the God's Wife of Amun. As a result of numerous tomb robbing during her tenure, the God's Wife of Amun Nitokris attempted to use the Apple to deter the robbers. However, she was killed before she could do so and the Apple passed to her daughter, Isidora.[11]

In 34 BCE, Isidora, now the God's Wife of Amun, used the Apple to conjure the apparitions of several deceased pharaohs as revenge against the ones responsible for her mother's death, which Thebans dubbed as a curse. On Amunet's advice, Bayek, now the Mentor of the Hidden Ones, travelled to Thebes to investigate and was able to uncover Isidora as the perpetrator of the curse. Bayek eliminated Isidora, recovered the Apple and gave it to Sutekh, a descendant of Ramesses II, for safekeeping.[11]

Sometime later however, Sutekh died under unknown circumstances. Bayek came across his corpse in the Waset Desert, with the Apple nowhere to be found.[11]

Gull's Apple

Gull wielding the Apple

This Apple was held within the Temple of Heimdall in Rygjafylke, Norway, high atop the Feiknstafir mountains. In 870, it was retrieved by the thrall Gull, who used it to break free of her mental and physical chains and remember her past life as the Isu Idun. She used its mind control power on the Raven Clan shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir, stopping her in her tracks.[13]

As the decrepit temple began to fall apart around them, Gull told Eivor to leave and save her village of Stavanger from an attack by Kjotve the Cruel and members of his clan. The Viking did so, abandoning both Gull and the Apple inside the collapsing temple and leaving their fates uncertain.[13]

Destroyed Apples of Eden

Apple of Eden #2

Main article: Apple of Eden 2
ACO Flavius and Apple

Flavius Metellus holding the Apple of Eden 2

This Apple of Eden, also called the Oracle's Relic or the Light of Amun-Ra by Bayek, was initally held by the Order of the Ancients member Medunamun. After finding Medunamun, the Medjay Bayek took the Apple of Eden from him and bludgeoned Medunamun to death with it for mocking the loss of his son Khemu and Bayek's failure to save him. [5]

Bayek would later carry this Apple with him until leaving it in the hands of Apollodorus, who later lost it to Flavius Metellus, though Bayek retrieved it once more from Flavius after assassinating the Roman at Cyrene's Temple of Apollo. Following this, Bayek stored the Apple in the Hidden Ones' hideout underneath the Library of Alexandria, where he hoped it would never be found.[5]

The Apple was eventually recovered by the Knights Templar and hidden in Solomon's Temple until 1191, when Al Mualim tasked his Assassins to steal the "Templar treasure". Although the mission was a partial failure, resulting in the death of one of the Assassins sent to retrieve the artifact, Kadar Al-Sayf, his brother Malik managed to escape with the Apple and returned to Masyaf.[1]

AssassinsCreed Al Mualim holding the Piece of Eden

Al Mualim wielding the Apple

Following this, the Apple remained in Al Mualim's possession, who used it to control the town's population until he was killed by Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, who claimed both the Apple and the title of Mentor.[1] Altaïr then kept the Piece of Eden until his death in 1257, using it several times for either his own safety or for its knowledge.[6]

In 1512, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze found Altaïr's library where the Apple had been locked away, but chose to leave the artifact there.[6] The Apple would eventually be removed from the library and given to Queen Elizabeth I of England, who favored a Protestant England over the Catholic religion of her forebears. She notably used the Apple to help reverse the Catholic influences of her predecessor, Mary I.[22]

The Apple eventually passed into the hands of Mahatma Gandhi, who most likely used it to acquire a large religious mass of followers in India in the early 20th century. However, the Templars became aware of Gandhi's possession of the artifact and assassinated him in 1948 to take the Piece of Eden for themselves.[23]

By 1963, the Templars had both the first and second known Apples in their possession and used them during the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The Apple was eventually destroyed during the DIA satellite accident, forcing the Templars to track down another Apple.[14]

Apple of Eden #4

Glyph 4 4

The Apple of Eden 4 seen in Glyphs

The fourth Apple was first depicted in 10th-century Chinese art, as a golden ball held by a small demon, and presumably played a role in the development of the first firearms.[27]

The first known human to possess the Apple was Nikola Tesla,[28] who found it in his home country, Croatia. He most likely used it to develop his technology on the availability of electricity worldwide, even showing the Apple to his friend Mark Twain.[29] The Templars started campaigning against him, using Thomas Edison to publicly slander Tesla and to videotape the electrocution of the elephant Topsy, to prove the danger of electricity.[28]

Some time after this, the Templars broke into Tesla's lab, stealing his Apple and using it to drive him insane.[28] Edison later lent it to Henry Ford, who manipulated assembly line workers for profit. Henry, "as per instructions", shipped the Apple to Adolf Hitler, just before the Nazi Party took power in Germany and began World War II.[29]

ACConspirations Julia Dusk Apple of Eden

Julia Dusk holding the Apple

By 1943, Hitler granted the Apple to the Templar and Obbergruppenführer Gero Kramer, who used it in different projects. He abducted Tesla and forced him to use the artifact in the Die Glocke Project, a device that allowed users to relive their ancestors' genetic memories. The Assassins Eddie Gorm and Julia Dusk killed Kramer and recovered the Apple for the Assassin Boris Pash.[30]

As Pash wanted to use the artifact with the Templa John von Neumann to travel back in time and kill Hitler, Dusk committed suicide with a hand grenade in an attempt to destroy the Apple, but failed. Pash and Neumann subsequently brought the Apple on the USS Eldridge for the Philadelphia Project but Gorm sabotaged it by killing Tesla.[30] By 1945, Hitler was in possession of the Apple once again but he was killed by the Assassins before he could deliver it to his contact.[24]

By 1957, a dying Neumann was in possession the Apple which was taken by Pash. In 1964, Pash made a deal with William King Harvey, giving the Apple to save his pregnant lover Zenia. Harvey entrusted the Apple and Pash's newborn daughter Nathalie to Dr. Warren Vidic. In 1977, Nathalie escaped from Abstergo with both the artifact and blueprints of an early Animus. While she later gave the blueprints to William Miles, she held onto the Apple until 2017, when she was killed in an explosion by the Assassin Tomo Sakagawa, which presumably also destroyed the artifact.[17]

Apple of Eden #7

The Apple of Eden 7 inside David Brewster's laboratory

In 1862, the British Templars discovered this Apple buried in London, but it was retrieved by the solicitor Charles Pearson before they could claim it. The Templar Cavanagh later assassinated Pearson and took possession of the Apple, intending to use it to overthrow Grand Master Crawford Starrick. However, he was killed by another Templar, Marchant, who subsequently delivered the artifact to the Order.[31]

By 1868, the Apple had been entrusted to the Templar scientist David Brewster, who experimented on it at his underground laboratory outside of Croydon. When the Assassin Evie Frye infiltrated the laboratory to kill Brewster, she saw the Apple and intended to retrieve it. Before she had the chance to do so, however, the Apple was overloaded and detonated, destroying the laboratory and leaving Evie as the sole survivor.[32]

Treasure Hunter's Apple of Eden

Main article: Treasure Hunter's Apple of Eden

This Apple of Eden was found by a famed treasure hunter sometime between 1100 and 950 BCE, who hid it on the island of Korfu. After his death, he left behind clues for his son to find his buried stash, including the Apple, but the son died before he could find it and so the tale of Korfu's treasure passed into legend.[7]

ACOD Power Corrupts All 11

In 420 BCE, a group of pirates began searching for the hidden treasure on Korfu and ran into the Spartan mercenary Kassandra, who was vacationing on the island at the time. Teaming up with her friends Herodotos and Barnabas, Kassandra followed the treasure hunter's clues to find his stash before the pirates, but was forced to hand over the Apple to the pirates' captain after he captured Herodotos.[7]

Upon fighting and killing the Apple-empowered captain, Kassandra moved to pick up the artifact. However, it reacted with her Spear of Leonidas and depowered it, before launching itself away. Barnabas later sought to recover the Apple for Kassandra, but became corrupted by its influence, forcing Kassandra to fight him. Ultimately, she managed to remove the Apple from his hands and destroyed it not long after.[7]

Isle of Skye's Apple of Eden

Main article: Isle of Skye's Apple of Eden
ACV What Dreams May Come 18

Eivor Varinsdottir finding the Apple

In the late 9th century CE, Kassandra arrived on Scotland's Isle of Skye to search for an Apple of Eden she had tracked to the island. However, her presence activated the artifact, which began influencing the island's population and giving them intense nightmares. When the Viking shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir arrived to investigate the source of the nightmares, she encountered Kassandra and the two warriors teamed up to find the Apple.[12]

Eventually, Eivor and Kassandra discovered the Apple hidden within an Isu temple known as the Cave of Gold. Jointly, both warriors took hold of the artifact and deactivated it, ending the nightmares plaguing the islanders. Eivor then handed the inert Apple to Kassandra, who presumably destroyed it.[12]

Other Apples of Eden

  • An Apple was stolen by Adam and Eve, possibly igniting the Human-Isu War. This is presumably the same Apple that motivated Cain to murder his brother Abel, as suggested in a Glyph puzzle left behind by Clay Kaczmarek.[33]
  • Al Mualim once remarked that Apples had been used to create powerful illusions across history. Among these were Moses, who made use of his Apple to turn his staff into a snake and made the Egyptian army believe that he was capable of parting and closing the Red Sea; and Jesus, who used his Apple to turn water into wine. Al Mualim also mentioned that the Apple of Discord cast by the Greek goddess Eris was actually an Apple of Eden,[34] though some of these miracles were later revealed to have been the doing of Pieces of Eden other than Apples.
  • According to Greek mythology, the legendary hero Herakles had to steal the apples from the garden of the Hesperides as the eleventh of his twelve labours.[35] These were hinted to have been Apples of Eden in one of the Glyph puzzles left behind by Clay Kaczmarek.[36]
  • According to Norse mythology, the Æsir Idun was the caretaker of golden apples, fruit which ensured the gods' vigor and immortality. These were hinted to have been Apples of Eden in one of the Glyph puzzles left behind by Clay Kaczmarek.[36]
  • The ancient Greek athlete Kyros of Zarax discovered an Apple in a temple of Aphrodite. He used this to win a race as an older man so as to gain the Arkadian princess Atalanta's hand in marriage.[37]
  • The 15th-century Assassin Li Tong possessed an Apple, which she protected from falling into the hands of the Yongle Emperor during his purge of the Chinese Assassins.[38]
  • In 1515, the Templar Dei Petrucci was given an Apple of Eden to transport through Florence. He was ambushed by the Assassins Giovanni Borgia and Hiram Stoddard, who sought to recover the artifact, but ultimately managed to escape.[39] The following year, the Brotherhood succeeded in retrieving the Apple and sent it to a hideout in Greece, where Hiram, who had since betrayed the Assassins, attempted to steal it.[40] However, Giovanni stopped him and took the Apple, transporting it to another location.[41]
  • During the coronation of Charles II of England, he noticed his general George Monck speaking to a man holding a sphere wrapped in a cloth, but had to bow his head to receive his crown before he could look any further.[42]
  • In 1839, the Assassin Arbaaz Mir and his servant Raza Soora explored the Isu ruins in the caverns beneath Ranjit Singh's summer palace. Amongst these ruins was a statue of Durga holding several Pieces of Eden, including an Apple.[43]
  • In the mid-century 19th century, the Assassin turncoat Oscar Kane gave an unidentified Apple of Eden to the Austrian Templar and Countess Konstanze von Visler for her experiments before his death.[44] By 1889, Konstanze had given the Apple to her alleged daughter Gisela.[45]

Behind the scenes

The Apples of Eden are by far the most common Pieces of Eden featured in the Assassin's Creed franchise, having appeared in every main installment of the video game series with the exception of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin's Creed: Rogue and Assassin's Creed: Mirage. Even then, Rogue still features a picture of an Apple, which can been alongside other Isu artifacts on a notice board inside the Davenport Homestead's manor.

In Assassin's Creed, Al Mualim attributed the Apple as the catalyst for certain events that it was later revealed not have been a part of. This is possibly because at the time, Shrouds and Staves of Eden such as the ones possessed by Jesus and Moses, respectively, had not yet been conceived as Pieces of Eden. Alternatively, Al Mualim could have been referring to Pieces of Eden in general and not the Apple in particular with that quote. He also described it as a "piece of silver", mostly in response to Altaïr's skeptical remark but also alluding to the tempting powers of the thirty pieces of silver paid to Judas Iscariot to betray Jesus.

In the 2016 film, it was revealed that the Apples consist of an outer cover and an inner core. The outer cover can be removed without affecting the function of the device. This was added to explain the different model of the Apple found by Arno Dorian in Assassin's Creed: Unity's downloadable expansion Dead Kings.

Far Cry New Dawn became the first Ubisoft game outside the Assassin's Creed series to feature an Apple of Eden. Whereas in Assassin's Creed they are ancient relics which have advanced functions, the Apples in New Dawn are legitimately supernatural in nature. Upon consumption, pure souls would acquire some supernatural abilities whereas sinful souls would transform into demonic creatures.

If players asked the virtual Personal Gaming Assistant "Sam" about Apples of Eden on the Ubisoft Connect mobile app, its response referenced the Isu's failed plan to launch Apples into orbit to shield Earth from the Great Catastrophe, saying that "About twenty Apples were recovered and lost throughout history. Of these, 12 were detonated in the atmosphere to protect the Earth from a solar flare".
