Description
From one of the bestselling science fiction authors of all time comes this heart-stopping far future novel of an asteroid on a collision course with Earth. A century into the future, technology has solved most of the problems that have plagued our time. However, a new problem is on the horizon--one greater than humanity has ever faced. A massive asteroid is racing toward Earth, and its impact could destroy all life on the planet. Immediately after the asteroid--named "Kali" after the Hindu goddess of chaos and destruction--is discovered, the world's greatest scientists begin researching a way to prevent the disaster. In the meantime, Cpt. Robert Singh, aboard the starship Goliath , may be the only person who can stop the asteroid. But this heroic role may demand the ultimate sacrifice. "Entertaining . . . [Clark] handles both ideas and characters with deftness and wit." -- Chicago Sun-Times
