This novel is the third book in a trilogy about the impact an anti-gravity device on our civilization. In the first novel, The Red Box, the Flynn brothers, Matt and Murray, invent a toaster-size device that makes any host platform weightless. The first application is a seaplane call Baldie, named after the bald eagle, manufactured in partnership with Mercedes-Benz. In this Indiana Jonestype thriller, the Chinese attempt to steal the game-changing technology. But, in the end, the powerful Red Box rewards U.S. President Werner with his second term, a $1 billion check to the Flynns, and the potential to create 1 million new high-tech jobs in America.
The second novel, Turbopod, applies the Red Box to an innovative personal vehicle called a Turbopod, which, because it can operate as an automobile, aircraft, helicopter, and hydroplane boat, alters global transportation. Working again with Mercedes-Benz, the brothers perfect a weightless, all-electric, extremely safe flying machine. Foreign countries attempt to use this vehicle to collapse the U.S. currency, but are brought down in several tactical air battles.
Turbospace is the application of the Red Box to the space industry. The Red Box overcomes the need for huge, expensive, and dangerous rockets to escape from the downward pull of gravity. The Red Box enables a cluster of Bald Eagle spacecraft to form a moon base for experiments to aid in the research of global warming. Again, in the Indiana Jones style, two astronauts disable a Chinese weapon clandestinely placed on the moon. This trilogy provides a glimpse into the future and how such an anti-gravity device could impact life on Earth and beyond.
