Mankind has colonized hundreds of worlds and expanded beyond the wildest dreams of their ancient ancestors, but there are still wonders unseen and horizons unexplored. Howard and Xavier are proposing an ambitious scientific achievement, one considered impossible until now, piercing the event horizon of a black hole and discovering what transpires beyond. There are many barriers yet to surmount, not the least of which are incredulity and ignorance, but they are determined to push the boundaries of human knowledge and achievement, no matter the cost, no matter how much their dream seems to be beyond the reach of mortal man.
