Inhaltsangabe:

COSM brings the extraordinary passion, drama and politics of scientific research to life in a stunning near-future thriller.

On an otherwise ordinary day not long from now, inside a massive installation of ultra-high-energy scientific equipment, something goes wrong with a brilliant young physicist's most ambitious experiment. But this is not a calamity. It will soon be seen as one of the most significant breakthroughs in history. For the explosion has left something behind: a sphere the size of a basketball, made of nothing known to science. As the forces of academia, government, theology and the mass media fight for control over the mystery that has been born, one woman comes face to face with fame and terror. For the sphere she has created contains far more than at first appears. And when she finds out what it is, she names it 'cosm'.

In this pulse-pounding thriller, Gregory Benford has returned to the world of scientists at work, exploring ideas at the frontier of mankind's knowledge, and posing profound and provocative questions about creation, human destiny and the riddle of godhood.COSM brings the extraordinary passion, drama and politics of scientific research to life in a stunning near-future thriller.

Rezension: Alicia Butterworth is a physicist from U.C. Irvine who's trying to recreate the conditions that existed just before the big bang using the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider on Long Island. Something goes wrong during one of the collider runs and part of the machine explodes, leaving behind a strange metallic sphere. Butterworth sneaks the object back to Irvine, where she and a colleague determine that what they have on their hands is a window into a miniature universe, or cosm. The cosm is evolving far faster than our own universe, giving Butterworth a ringside seat as the history of creation replays itself. Her theft turns out to be just the start of what, at times, is a boisterous adventure as she becomes ensnared in the intrigue of cloistered academic and scientific circles.
