Scientists are researching how to warp and alter time to help change
the outcome of a war. Near the end of a war, after the second
failure, the research complex is destroyed in a large catastrophe.
Because they are dealing with powers they don't know how to control
it rips them apart. People not there assume they were hit by a
missle of some sort because of the destruction.
But what really happened was that the vortexes of energy they were
trying to deal with were not fine tuned enough to work with and they
got out of control. It appears to involve England and Northern
Europe. It's in our future but the groundwork has been laid already
by scientists working on secret projects in this direction. Something
may come of it in our lifetimes but the government will keep it under
The catastrophe will be very localized and will have some strange
side-effects in the dimension of time in the general area there. The
government was counting on it to give it an edge in the war and loses
it and will end up affecting the outcome of the war.
