YA Book of the Day: 45th Anniversary of Apollo 5

barnes losersLess than fifty years ago we were still shooting unmanned pods into space.  Today, even though NASA has taken huge cuts, there are people working toward commercial space flights.  Barnes dreams of a future where people live on Mars but getting there still isn’t easy.  Especially if you’re trying to get famous on the way.  I had to read this one because of the title and I’m so glad I did.  For those that are interested, Barnes maps out the science of space travel.  For those that are not, he clearly separates the technical talk from the rest of the novel.
