A Race to Save the World from Space

Project Hail Mary is about how far one would go to save the world, if you aren’t a fan of science fiction this might change your mind.

“Project Hail Mary”, the book that Bill Gates consumed in one weekend, is the latest from Andy Weir, author of “The Martian” and “Artemis”. Since the success of “The Martian”, Weir has yet again produced another bestselling science-fiction space adventure that brings the reader along the journey of Ryland Grace.

Grace, a high-school science teacher, finds himself the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission—and if he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish.

Except that right now, he doesn’t know that. He can’t even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it. All he knows is that he’s been asleep for a very, very long time. And he’s just been awakened to find himself millions of miles from home with nothing but two corpses for company.

His crewmates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, Ryland realises that an impossible task now confronts him. Hurtling through space in a tiny ship, it’s up to him to solve an impossible scientific mystery—and overcome an extinction-level threat to our species. And with the clock ticking down and the nearest human being light years away, he’s got to do it all alone. Or does he?

An irresistible interstellar adventure as only Andy Weir could deliver, “Project Hail Mary” is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival “The Martian”—while taking us to places it never dreamed of going.
