Quantum SpaceBook - 2017
High above the windswept plains of Kazakhstan, a Russian Soyuz capsule drops toward Earth. Onboard are three astronauts returning from the International Space Station. A strange shimmer in the atmosphere, a blinding flash of light, and the capsule vanishes in a blink as though it never existed. On the ground, stress levels spike as evidence points to a catastrophic reentry failure. But more than an hour later, a communications facility in Australia picks up a voice transmission that sounds like one of the astronauts. The voice of a dead man? In Washington, the National Security Advisor launches a team to investigate. The reentry tragedy could be something else and a classified government project on the cutting edge of quantum physics may hold the clues. With astronauts' lives on the line, there is little time to waste. Daniel Rice is a government science investigator. Marie Kendrick is a NASA operations analyst. Together, they must track down the cause of what could be the most bizarre event in the history of human spaceflight. They draw on scientific strengths in an intense plunge deep into the strange world of quantum physics, with impacts not only to the three missing astronauts, but to the entire human race.
