Description

‘Excellent exactly how good science fiction should be: gripping story beautifully told while at the same time being scientifically well-informed.’ tweeted RICHARD DAWKINS. ‘Reminiscent of vintage Arthur C. Clarke . . . has a chilling nail-biting authenticity’ said JAMES LOVEGROVE in the Financial Times. From renowned theoretical physicist broadcaster and author Jim Al-Khalili comes this thrilling debut novel drawing on cutting-edge science and set in a near-future full of dazzling technologies. 2041 and the world as we know it grinds to a halt. Our planet seems to be turning against itself – it would appear that the magnetic field that protects life on Earth from deadly radiation from space is failing . . . Desperate to quell the mass hysteria that would surely follow world governments have concealed this rapidly emerging Armageddon. But a young Iranian hacktivist stumbles across the truth and it becomes a race against time to reactivate the earth’s core using beams of dark matter. As a small team of brave and brilliant scientists battle to find a way of transforming theory into practice they face a fanatical group intent on pursuing their own endgame agenda: for they believe mankind to be a plague upon this earth and will do anything commit any crime to ensure that the project fails . . . And so bring about humanity’s end.
