Skyfall

Author(s): Harry Harrison

Science Fiction

Prometheus is the largest spacecraft ever built by man. A joint USA-USSR project, the gigantic ship weighs over 20,000 tons--and may be the ultimate solution to the world's energy needs. Like its mythical namesake, who stole fire from the gods and gave it to mankind, Prometheus will capture the energy of the sun and beam it to Earth--unless something goes terribly wrong.

An unforseen accident has stranded Prometheus in a decaying orbit less than a hundred miles above the Earth. Its small, international crew of men and women have a day, maybe less, before they come crashing down with their ship. But there's more at stake than a few astronauts' lives. Prometheus is too immense to burn up in reentry. When it hits, history's greatest endeavor will become the world's biggest bomb.

"Harrison wastes little time on anything but down-to-the-wire suspense, but he provides that in whopping good doses. A shamelessly effective Chicken Little potboiler."--Kirkus Reviews
