Overview

MICRO GIANT


Little book with a big story-just the right companion for entertainment on a trip or a long evening.

Dr. Jim Bennett, Lead Subatomic Particle Physicist at the Large Hanford Collider near Richland, Washington, is awakened at 2:00 a.m. by an urgent phone call from the night-shift operations physicist. A strange problem has occurred during a power surge. Even though the Collider has been turned off, it appears to be emitting an intense and increasing radiation level.
Jim rushes to the Collider's control room and is at first puzzled, but finally arrives at a conclusion. During an experiment, in which beams of particles were being smashed into each other head-on at velocities near the speed of light, a mysterious microscopic entity has formed.

Although it is microscopic, the entity has a giant mass for its size. This Micro Giant is rapidly bouncing around, gaining mass and emitting gamma rays while absorbing matter it contacts. Jim decides that it is an unknown type of micro black hole, and in time it could destroy the entire earth. He launches a dangerous crash effort hoping to stop the Micro Giant before it becomes unstoppable.
