Former astronaut Scott Blackstone’s dream of opening outer space to visits from everyday people is under attack.
His pilot program has been marred by a fatal accident, he’s out of a job, and he’s being sued for a billions dollars. And it’s beginning to seem that the “accident” wasn’t at all accidental.
Then the endless conflict between India and Pakistan heats up… and Pakistan explodes a nuclear device in the upper atmosphere, frying electronics on earth and in space, and putting the crew of the international Space Station at risk.
With the Shuttle fleet grounded, only a secret Skunkworks project known to Scott and his old friends can save the space station’s stranded crew.
“The Return” is a tale about the kind of space adventure that could happen today – and that will happen tomorrow.
