Publisher Description

The space mission of a lifetime

An epic saga of America's might-have-been, Voyage is a powerful, sweeping novel of how, if President Kennedy had lived, we could have sent a manned mission to Mars in the 1980s. Imaginatively created from the true lives and real events, Voyage returns to the geniuses of NASA and the excitement of the Saturn rocket, and includes historical figures from Neil Armstrong to Ronald Reagan who are interwoven with unforgettable characters whose dreams mirror the promise of a young space program that held the world in thrall. There is: Dana, the Nazi camp survivor who achieves the dream of his hated masters; Gershon, the Vietnam fighter jock determined to be the first African-American to land on another planet; and Natalie York, the brilliant geologist/astronaut who risks a career and love for the chance to run her fingers through the soil of another world.

I love it!

I've had the pleasure of reading the physical copy of this novel, and I'm glad it's finally available here on the iBookstore. Stephen Baxter has a wonderful talent for illustrating a future (or past, in this case) that may have been, from President Kennedy to a push for Mars by the United States. Filled with numerous details and a range of colorful characters, Voyage is a great read.

Basically, boring

I'm a big Stephen Baxter fan but found this but somewhat boring. I was expecting a book about Mars, not an essay in NASA politics.
