Summary
In the twenty-second century Earth obtains limitless, free energy from a source science little understands: an exchange between Earth and a parallel universe, using a process devised by the aliens. But even free energy has a price. The transference process itself will eventually lead to the destruction of the Earth's Sun—and of Earth itself.Only a few know the terrifying truth—an outcast Earth scientist, a rebellious alien inhabitant of a dying planet, a lunar-born human intuitionist who senses the imminent annihilation of the Sun. They know the truth—but who will listen? They have foreseen the cost of abundant energy—but who will believe? These few beings, human and alien, hold the key to Earth's survival
Summary
In the year 2100, mankind on Earth, settlers in a lunar colony, and aliens from the para-universe (a strange universe parallel in time to our own) face a race against time as they try to prevent the total destruction of the Earth by the invention of an Inter-Universe Electron Pump
