This is the Third book in a four book series.
Heywood Floyd, now 103 years old is invited aboard the space ship Universe for a celebrity voyage to rendezvous with Halley’s Comet. But this is cut short when Universe’s sister ship Galaxy crash lands on Europa after an attempted hijacking. Among those on board is Floyd’s grandson Chris.
The aliens who built the monoliths have deemed Europa out of bounds to humans, and no one has landed there since the ill fated Chinese mission 51 years before. Universe leaves for Europa to attempt a rescue amid fears and speculation over what will happen when they attempt to land on the forbidden planet.
