Jim Al-Khalili: Sunfall

Renowned theoretical physicist, broadcaster and author Professor Jim Al-Khalili explored the cutting-edge science behind his new rip-roaring race-against-time thriller about an end-of-the-world event that could actually happen…

The year is 2041 and planet Earth is in trouble.

It seems to be turning against itself. Extreme weather events coincide with catastrophic technological failures. Mega-storms devastate coastlines. Planes fall out of the skies. Few realise that these events are connected: the magnetic field that protects all life on Earth is failing . . .

Desperate to avoid mass hysteria, world governments have suppressed the truth about this impending Armageddon. But then a young Iranian hacktivist discovers what’s really going on – and the genie is out of the bottle. Can anything be done to save humankind from this fate?

Three scientists believe they have the answer: to reactivate the magnetic field using dark matter. But time is not on their – or the world’s – side. As they race to find a way of transforming theory into practice, they face a fanatical group with their own endgame agenda. For it believes mankind to be a plague upon this earth and will do anything to ensure that the project fails.

And so bring about the world’s end.
