The weight of the world rests on the shoulders of Daniel Ichigo, a childhood prodigy turned top NASA researcher. Engineers and mechanics are building pods – the titular capsules – each capable of housing 900 selected survivors. Everyone else dies. There is nothing else to be done: A neighboring star has collapsed, and a wave of gamma radiation is heading towards Earth. It's Ichigo's task to select the lucky few, based on his belief that those best set to be locked away indefinitely with 899 strangers are those with the greatest capacity for love.
