Summary :

A group of scientists and engineers have come up with the ultimate power source, atomic energy from water. Normally, the breakdown of this fuel source proceeds perfectly, as the equations dictate, and all is well. But occasionally, a drop of water ends up in the machine that simply refuses to be annihilated. All attempts at studying these drops have failed, and these days the machine is simply purged and the process restarted.

But what if these drops of water held an incredible secret... one so amazing that it is beyond the wildest dreams of the most imaginitive physicist? That is, until one of them stumbles upon the astonishing answer through a horrifying set of circumstances.
