Skyfall

by Harry Harrison
Release date: 1976
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

The 2,000 tonne Prometheus is a joint Soviet-American space station designed to harness solar energy, to replace the dwindling supply of fossil fuels.

The crew of six live in cramped quarters, but their personal problems soon pale when the satellite's orbit begins to decay. If it hits the Earth, its radioactive power plant will explode with the force of an atom bomb.

Skyfall combines political thriller and a disaster story, with space technology based on designs already planned by scientists. Technical advice for the novel was provided by Gerry Webb, F.B.I.S.
