The Calculating Stars
- A Lady Astronaut Novel
- Autor: Mary Robinette Kowal
- Sprecher: Mary Robinette Kowal
- Spieldauer: 11 Std. und 41 Min.
On a cold spring night in 1952, a huge meteorite fell to earth and obliterated much of the East Coast of the US, including Washington, DC. The ensuing climate cataclysm will soon render the Earth inhospitable for humanity, as the last such meteorite did for the dinosaurs. This looming threat calls for a radically accelerated effort to colonize space and requires a much-larger share of humanity to take part in the process. Elma York’s drive to become the first lady astronaut is so strong that even the most dearly held conventions of society may not stand a chance against her.

More character than story driven, but a wonderful novel in any case. It's a "soft" journey into the sci-fi genre, with elements of history and romance. If this is something you like - like me - you will love this book. As long as you don't expect aliens and laser beam fights.
