Publisher's summary

When the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, it's up to six college students and their experimental physics project to prevent the end of civilization.

When an experiment to study quantum uncertainty goes spectacularly wrong, physics student Bill Rustad and his friends find that they have accidentally created an inter-dimensional portal. They connect to Outland - an alternate Earth with identical geology, but where humans never evolved. The group races to establish control of the portal before the government, the military, or evildoers can take it away.

Then everything changes when the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts in an explosion large enough to destroy civilization and kill half the planet. The team has just hours to get as many people as possible across to Outland before a lethal cloud of ash overwhelms them.

Nothing has prepared the refugees for what they find - a world of few resources and unprecedented dangers. Somehow, they must learn to survive, because Outland may not just be a safe haven - it could be their new home.

Editor's Pick

We're (not) canceling the Apocalypse!
"When I was a child, my dad dispassionately told me that a shield volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park could erupt in our lifetime, spreading ash that would destroy life in the Midwest as we know it—and that this very shield volcano already caused geysers to spew boiling water hundreds of feet into the air! I was immediately enthralled. So much so, in fact, that we visited Yellowstone National Park the following year. Alas, upon arrival, I was heartbroken (and very confused) to learn that Old Faithful was "under construction." I mean... what?? How could the face of an apocalyptic force be subject to the same repair verbiage as a broken escalator? In my mind, the apocalypse had been canceled. Thankfully, Dennis E. Taylor is here to heal the geyser-sized hole in my inner child’s heart, for this same shield volcano serves as the cataclysmic basis for Outland’s riveting story. Throw in some inter-dimensional portals, hard sci-fi elements, and a new world—then add in Ray Porter’s effortless charisma as narrator—and you’ve got the perfect sci-fi listen for anyone who's ever had their childlike wonderment ruined by everyday pragmatism." —Sean T., Audible Editor
