At Sherman Patterson University's science symposium in Canada, physics professor James Reynolds and astrophysics scientist Huneo L. Parkas meet for the first time and instantly strike up a friendship. But neither realizes just how important this relationship will be to the future of mankind .|
At the conference, Parkas reports on a disturbing scientific phenomenon, one that deals with Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. Known as the Pegasus Effect, the anomaly is derived by the overall slowing of the galaxy and is systematically causing people to grow weak and die.
As the Pegasus Effect intensifies, the Earth's population begins to decline, creating massive chaos and worldwide panic. Drawing upon their expertise and fighting their own personal demons, Reynolds and Parkas must try and discover a way to stop the Pegasus Effect before it destroys all mankind.
