Book DescriptionGary Morgan - a brilliant, renegade scientist is pilloried by the scientific community for his belief in a space elevator: a pillar to the sky, which he believes will make space flight fast, simple, and affordable. Eva Morgan - a brilliant and beautiful scientist, has had a lifelong obsession to build a tower which would mine the power of the sun and supply humanity with cheap, limitless energy forever. Erich Rothenberg - the ancient but revered rocket-scientist who laboured to create the first rockets. A legend, he has mentored Gary and Eva for two decades, nurturing and encouraging their transcendent vision. Franklin Smith - the eccentric Silicon Valley billionaire who will champion their cause, wage war with Congress and government bureaucracy, and, most important, finance their herculean undertaking. The Goddard Space Flight Centre-the novel's pre-eminent hero, whose enormous army of scientists, engineers and astronauts will fight endless battles and overcome countless obstacles every step of the way. This journey to the stars will not be easy-a tumultuous struggle filled with violence and heroism, love and death, spellbinding beauty and heart-breaking betrayal. The stakes could not be higher. Humanity's salvation will hang in the balance.
Editorial ReviewA riveting cautionary tale. --Booklist on One Second After "An entertaining apocalyptic thriller." --Publishers Weekly on One Second After "Good storytelling consists very simply of creating characters so believable that the reader forms a deep bond. Forstchen did such a damned fine job with One Second After that shortly after the first page, I had been reeled in hook, line, and sinker." --David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author of The Expediter on One Second After
