Driven by the nation’s growing thirst for energy, Project Aurora takes shape in the pristine wilderness of northern Alaska. The U.S. Department of Energy unveils plans to tap the enormous power of the solar wind using state-of-the-art satellite technology combined with a recent discovery by an eminent atmospheric physicist. As a multi-billion-dollar power station takes shape on the Artic Circle, oil interests and environmental groups plot to destroy it. Project Director Alvin Brewer and his team must not only overcome the technical challenges of harvesting energy from space, but also must cope with sabotage from foreign terrorists. Unbeknownst to the director, the military has its own plans for the Department of Energy’s satellite network, and unwittingly becomes party to the greatest manmade disaster ever to beset North America. Can Brewer and his team decode the software that sent their high-energy satellite system out of control before our own military destroys the newborn product of years of research and engineering?
