Warning!! This book is not for those under fifty-five. If you are looking for Fifty Shades of Mars, look somewhere else. This book is about a one way trip to Mars in 2040 by 150 senior, 'expendable' scientists to finally establish a permanent Martian colony. It is a book about loss, about regret, about being the last human on Mars and serves as a cautionary tale to Mars astronaut wannabes.
