One of the biggest science experiments of all time is about to take place – and George and Annie have got front-row seats! Eric, Annie's scientist dad, is heading to the Large Hadron Collider to explore the earliest moments of the Universe—the Big Bang. Armed with his trusty super-computer, Cosmos, nothing can possibly go wrong . . . until George and Annie discover a fiendish plot to destroy the experiment!

George is swept into a terrifying adventure—through wormholes, into far-flung galaxies and to the edge of knowledge itself—while he and Annie race to outwit a sinister group who are bent on the destruction of science . . . But will they succeed?

This incredible adventure story includes some of the latest scientific theories about time travel and the Big Bang, as well as special essays from some of the leading scientists in the world, including Professor Stephen Hawking himself!
