Continuing the grand sweep of alternate history laid out in The Calculating Stars, The Fated Sky looks forward to 1961, when mankind is well-established on the moon and looking forward to its next step: journeying to, and eventually colonizing, Mars. Of course the noted Lady Astronaut Elma York would like to go, but could the International Aerospace Coalition ever stand the thought of putting a woman on such a potentially dangerous mission? Could Elma knowingly take the place of other astronauts who have been overlooked because of their race? And could she really leave behind her husband and the chance to start a family? This gripping look at the real conflicts behind a fantastical space race will put a new spin on our visions of what might have been.… (mais)

This second book in the Lady Astronaut series is a great combination of alternate history and science fiction, with a good deal of scientific and technological detail mixed in. The story is in the style of the old-fashioned space-travel adventure but explores issues that seem very contemporary. ( )

This book felt very similar to the first, and we spend a lot of time in space, where very little happens on the way to Mars. This time, rather than just having to deal with mysoginy and anxiety, our heroes encounter racism, terrorists, and personal trauma.

I particularly liked how this book humanizes Parker, who came off as an almost entirely bad guy in the first book. ( )

On one level, there is an absolutely wonderful feel to the technology in this book. It really does feel to me like a slightly alternate history 1950s/60s, flying a trio of spacecraft to the red planet. It actually comes to the point of making me think: if this feels this real now, then why in the world haven't we been to Mars yet. Bring on the meteor! (Not really. That would kill an awful lot of people.) You can really feel just how much research went into this book.

On the other level, I really love how [a:Mary Robinette Kowal|2868678|Mary Robinette Kowal|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1602692419p2/2868678.jpg] does a great job on the human level as well. Elma is one smart lady, but not without her own flaws. She works through them though, even when the whole world doesn't act the way she expects them to. And man. I cannot imagine going on a mission like this without my spouse. The code was a pretty brilliant idea... and brute forcing a few of those sections that wasn't translated. Ooh la la.

Parker is an absolute PITA to work with, but the more you get to know him... the more you get it. Deep down, he really cares about his people, doing his job, and learning how to swear in as many languages as possible. After all he goes through this book, I really want to be a lie fly on the wall when he gets back to Mission Control.

My mother once told me that an apology wasn’t about being right or wrong, but showing that the relationship was more important than the problem.

The rest of the crew is every bit as solid, in my opinion. It's fascinating and more than a bit sad to read about the outright racism and sexism present on Earth and the mission to Mars. People are people, yet you still find the black crew members doing more than their share of janitorial work and the women stuck with laundry and kitchen work. Oy vey.

I am trying to remember that you mean well. But at the moment, I cannot take the protestations of a well-meaning white woman. I do not have the energy to reassure you or to pretend I am happy and content with my lot in life.

Even if it's not primarily Elma, I'm looking forward to [b:The Relentless Moon|52381417|The Relentless Moon (Lady Astronaut #3)|Mary Robinette Kowal|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1574326388l/52381417._SY75_.jpg|65396089]. ( )

A couple of years have passed since The Calculating Stars and Elma York's visit to the Moon. Now, she is part of the first manned mission to Mars, a last minute political move to gain public support, bumping a person of color, who had been part of the team. Most of the book is spent aboard the Nina and Pinta, with limited teletype communication with Earth, where there is racial unrest reminiscent of the times. The crews must conquer the challenges caused by isolation, some unexpected disasters, and interpersonal conflicts, ranging from racism to sexism, even sexual preferences. I thought this was too much like the first book and did not find the characters as well developed, until some revealing moments at the end when we discovered important personal issues about the mission commander, who it turns out is human after all.

There are not enough words to express how good this book was for me. To be fair, I skimmed a lot of the rocket jargon since I am not a rocket scientist. I do think my dad will enjoy that part. I did enjoy the science. And the characters. I laughed out loud a few times, and I cried hard at others. I tried not to compare the premise of this novel with the problems we face in our own time still today, but I could not help it. I want to see Artemis base happen. I want us to land on Mars. I'd prefer we not kill a significant portion of the population in a meteor strike to make that happen. ( )

Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie,
Which we ascribe to heaven: the fated sky
Gives us free scope, only doth backward pull
Our slow designs when we ourselves are dull.
What power is it which mounts my love so high,
That makes me see, and cannot feed mine eye?
The mightiest space in fortune nature brings
To join like likes and kiss like native things.
Impossible be strange attempts to those
That weigh their pains in sense and do suppose
What hath been cannot be: who ever strove
So show her merit, that did miss her love?
The king's disease—my project may deceive me,
But my intents are fix'd and will not leave me.
