Pillar to the Sky is a NASA-inspired work of fiction from William R. Forstchen, author of the New York Times bestseller, One Second After

Skyrocketing oil prices, dwindling energy supplies, and a devastating drought which has led to wars over water threaten the planet. Four people strive to prevent global chaos:

Gary Morgan, a renegade scientist ridiculed for his belief in a space elevator, or pillar to the sky;

Eva Morgan, long obsessed with building a tower to supply cheap, limitless energy derived from the power of the sun;

Erich Rothenberg, who labored to create the first rockets; and

Franklin Smith, an eccentric Silicon Valley billionaire who champions their cause, wages war with Congress and government bureaucracy on their behalf, and, most important, finances their herculean undertaking.

This journey to the stars will not be easy—a tumultuous struggle filled with violence and heroism, love and death, spellbinding beauty and heartbreaking betrayal. The stakes could not be higher. Humanity’s salvation hangs in the balance.
