Throughout history, man has been searching for better ways to gather information about his universe. And though they may have longed for it, not even the most brilliant minds could conceive of a device as infinitely powerful and precise as the macroscope ... until the twenty-first century. By analyzing information carried on macrons, this incredible tool brought the whole universe of wonders to man's doorstep. The macroscope was seen by many as the salvation of the human race. But in the hands of the wrong person, the macroscope could be immensely destructive—infinitely more dangerous than the nuclear bomb. In his quest for too much knowledge, man could destroy the very essence of his mind. This is the powerful story of man's struggle with technology ... and with his humanity. Macroscope takes us across the breathtaking ranges of space as well as through the most touching places in the human heart. It is a story of coming of age, of sacrifice, and of love. It is the story of man's desperate search for a compromise between mind and heart, between knowledge and humanity.
