Anything else? Earth is visited by a hollowed out asteroid. It turns out the asteriod comes from an alternate future not so different from our own. The astreoid contains seven chambers. The seventh being longer than the whole asteroid – a lot longer. It is a tube that winds its way through space time connecting up to alternate futures. The heroine of the tale is a mathematician who’s specialty is space time continuums.
