THE CALCULATING STARS by Mary Robinette Kowal
ISBN: 9781781087312
Release date: 16 May 2019

ONE WOMAN. ONE MISSION. ONE CHANCE TO SAVE THE WORLD.

It's 1952, and the world as we know it is gone. A meteorite has destroyed Washington DC, triggering extinction-level global warming. To save humanity, the world unites to form the International Aerospace Coalition. Its mission: to colonise first the Moon, then Mars.

Elma York, World War Two pilot and mathematician, dreams of becoming an astronaut--but prejudice has kept her grounded.

Now nothing--and no man--will stop her from reaching for the stars.
