The three-body problem here refers to a theory of orbital mechanics, that of the N-body problem. The novel deals with humanity's first contact with another civilization, this time alien, alternating between representations of the past and present time, but also future consequences. New extraterrestrial species and humanity are dissected there.

On Netflix, the synopsis presents the series as follows: “On several continents and years apart, five brilliant friends make astonishing discoveries while the laws of science are disrupted and a serious threat emerges..”
