Summary
When Nobel prize-winning physicist Michael Beard's personal and professional lives begin to intersect in unexpected ways, an opportunity presents itself in the guise of an invitation to travel to New Mexico. Here is a chance for him to extricate himself from his marital problems, reinvigorate his career, and very possibly save the world from environmental disaster
Summary
Nobel Prize-winning scientist Michael Beard is coasting through his professional life, making no real contribution since he won his award, while his fifth marriage is in danger due to his, and his wife's, infidelities; but he gets a chance at redemption when he is called on to save humanity from environmental disaster.
