Kennedy survived. Like many alternate history stories, that's the premise of Stephen Baxter's Voyage. But in Baxter's version of the past, that one altered fact is the propellant that drives humanity into space, beyond the primitive lunar landings of the 1960s. Spurred by a JFK who champions space flight and a Nixon administration that backs NASA, humans reach Mars in 1986. But this is a tragic tale as well as a triumphant one, for Baxter's relentless realism chronicles the perils of extended space flight as well as its glamorous achievements, making for a gritty, true-to-life story. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

The story of the US manned space programme of the 1970s and 1980s - as it should have happened. Kennedy is shot in 1963, but not killed, only invalided and forced to retire. Under his uniting influence, the first manned Ares probe lifts off for Mars in 1986.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Fascinating Hypothesis 20. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Many people who consider the phrase science fiction to be populated by Star Trek-ish characters and zap guns will be pleasantly surprised by this novel. Writers have always done a "what-if" regarding the Kennedy assassination, but Mr. Baxter has done a remarkable what-if in regards to NASA and the possibility of a Mars mission. In fact, NASA is the only entity to have actually been affected by Kennedy's survival; everything else -- Vietnam, Watergate, and every other political moment -- has remained surprisingly intact. The characters are true to life and the situations mirror what NASA might have done to prepare for a Mars landing, the blunders it might have made that are chillingly similar to the ones they made that lead to the Challenger disaster, and the ultimate soaring of the American and human spirit once success had been achieved. The only drawback is the technical writing; Mr. Baxter goes into perhaps too much detail on the technical aspects of the NASA missions, but not enough to detract from the human drama.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Some others of Baxter's sources 3. Juli 2000
Von NickW
Format:Taschenbuch
I liked the book a lot; even if I felt, as some others have, that maybe a world with Mariner 10, Viking, Voyager and Hubble is actually a richer one than one with a single-shot Mars mission. Part of his achievement is that he makes you really ask yourself what you'd rather have seen happen.
However, I don't think the political mechanism he invents is as plausible as the technology.
Others have noted that aspects of the novel draw on Charles Murray and Catherine Bly Cox's excellent "Apollo". Readers may also like to seek out "Angle of Attack" by Mike Gray, as this book on Harrison "Stormy" Storms of North American appears to have informed the J K Lee character; and "The making of an ex-astronaut" by onetime NASA scientist-astronaut Brian O'Leary, which contributes a couple of threads to the Natalie York character.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Better than I thought 6. August 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I came to know Baxter's writing through his more SF type books such as Ring and the Time Ships and in those respects he seemed a natural successor to HG Wells and the others who used ideas to drive their novels. And then I see this book. The first thing that tipped me off is that there's no mention of his other SF books in any of the author bios, even though some of them have won awards and stuff and been generally acclaimed, in fact if you didn't see the listing of his novels in the front of the book you'd think that this was his first novel. So, geez, I thought to myself, a SF writer trying to play down his science fiction past in order to make himself more appealing to the mainstream, nothing I hadn't seen before but since I had faith in Baxter I figured I'd give the book a try. And you know what it's not bad, the history extrapolation are just as good as anyone else's but the premise is good and the feelings that it ignites in you, the actual thought of us going to Mars, if there's anything that rekindles that desire to get there, this could be the book. The book focuses more on actually getting there as opposed to what we would do there which is a small complaint, I would have at least like to see what happens to the characters when they got back to Earth and got on with their lives, I mean face it after going to Mars everything else is certainly downhill from there. That and the characters are a tad stock at times, of course the woman is a no nonsese lady with a chip on her shoulder and the African character is always angry and all the astronauts are "just one of the boys" and you do realize this during the course of the book but really when you take everything together it's a good effort.

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I just finished this superbly written, spellbinding novel. Stephen Baxter's technical background clearly shows and makes this novel so enjoyable for true SCIENCE fiction fans. There is nothing worse than a story involving fantastic "inventions" of new technologies which make no sense at all. Any technologically minded reader will enjoy this book as much as I did, simply because the scenarios are believable and, as we saw from the actual unmanned Mars probe efforts, feasible. The political undercurrent, based partly on actual and partly on fictional events, adds even more factuality. The minute details with which Baxter describes the engineering feats performed by NASA's subcontractors, as well as the many successes and failures prior to the Mars Mission launch itself, emotionally involve the reader in the storyline. The characters are not your glorified hero-types but as close to normal as they can be under the circumstances. The gritty descriptions of the tests and routines ascans have to go through may be objectionable to some "sensitive" minds, but they open up your eyes to the demands placed on the human body during space flight, and do not gloss over the physical and mental strains as many other science fiction books or movies do. Baxter's story fluidly interweaves the characters' past with the present and presents a well-rounded story which made it hard to put the book down.
