If they manage to grab it all and bring it safely into the earth’s atmosphere they can ensure it won’t be used for nefarious reasons. But the Chinese and Russians will do anything to get hold of the product. Even make a deal with the devil if they have to. And when everything goes wrong, NUMA step in to assist. Will they save the world?
