On a desolate island off the southern coast of Chile, an incredible discovery is made: a gigantic meteorite, the largest ever found, entombed in the earth for millions of years. Half a world away, billionaire entrepreneur Palmer Lloyd decides he must have it as the centerpiece of his grandiose new museum. He's willing to pay any price -- in dollars and in lives. Getting it to New York will mean moving the heaviest object ever attempted by humans. Fueled by Lloyd's money, an audacious expedition sets out in a state-of-the-art ship disguised as a rusted freighter, with a plan to steal the meteorite.
