While a few fanatics welcome the apocalyptic destruction as a sign from God, the greatest scientific minds of Earth desperately search for a way to avoid the inevitable.

Suddenly they find themselves on the most important mission in human history-a mission whose success may require the ultimate sacrifice."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall .
