In this 8th adventure, Tom Swift must try to find out what is going on with an inter-galactic phenomena just a short dozen light years away. Astronomers—those who have been allowed to know of the anomaly—are baffled but can't really see it due to Saturn being in their line of sight. So, Tom and a team of ex-astronauts repair and reposition the old Hubble Telescope out past Saturn to get a good look.
What everyone sees is the stuff nightmares are made of. It might be a black hole, or something even more disastrous for our solar system, and it is in our solar neighborhood. Using a new technology, Tom and his best friend, Bud Barclay, force their way through a small wormhole and arrive near the anomaly. The big problem is, now that they've arrived and seen what's really going on, they may not be able to get back to Earth to tell anyone. Worst of all, mysterious apparitions appear near the anomaly seemingly beckoning them to fly in.
