Starfire by Paul Preuss( Book )

After a solar flare accident in orbit, Travis is a hero: the first astronaut to bail out of a spacecraft and live. NASA, however, had advised against the bailout-and as punishment for violating orders, Travis is grounded on earth, never to fly again. Then comes Starfire, an experimental spacecraft that could be capable of interstellar flight. Travis fights a desperate political battle to become a crewmember, and his go-it-alone attitude makes for some rough going. Starfire's planned maiden voyage is to land on an asteroid that is heading toward a close loop around the sun, stay long enough to explore, then return to Earth by way of a gravity boost around Venus. But during the mission, disaster strikes again: the ship is hit by a huge solar flare and must take shelter in the shadow of the asteroid, even while falling ever closer to the sun. The aim of the mission now becomes desperate survival

The planet's only hope lies in the brilliant minds of a father and son, Cyrus and Leiden Hudder - minds singularly linked in the mission to save life on Earth, but separated by a lifetime of misunderstanding and resentment which culminated in Cyrus's disappearance in the early 1980s. In the embers of the first atomic explosion at White Sands during WW II, Cyrus Hudder discovers an extraordinary new crystal, harder than diamond, impossible to melt. Cyrus has long dreamed of drilling down to the Earth's core; now, if he lines the hole with ``hudderite, '' the idea seems feasible

BROKEN SYMMETRIES introduces theoretical physicist Peter Slater and world-traveling photojournalist Anne-Marie Brand. They meet in Hawaii, where Anne-Marie is in pursuit of a story about the giant atom-smasher TERAC, the newest and biggest particle accelerator in the world, built amidst the pineapple fields of Oahu. Dr. Martin Edovich is the triumphant scientist behind the project-he claims that "his" discovery of I-particles will win him the Nobel Prize and change the face of physics. But Peter Slater predicted the existence of I-particles long ago and suspects that they are unstable-explosive and potentially cataclysmic. And as TERAC ramps up, Slater's theory is about to be tested. The symmetries of matter itself are about to be unexpectedly broken, unleashing the fury of self-annihilation
