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.

Reading this on the Kindle, I'm not sure how long it was, but it felt like it took a long time to get through. I read this one second instead of first in this trilogy, but turns out it doesn't matter. Each book appears to be stand-alone. Each is a story of "what if NASA took a different direction than Apollo?" An interesting idea, but unfortunately, this wasn't written well for me.

For fans of NASA politics, extreme detail in engineering, and loads of description, this might be a good book, but I found it far too long. There was much less "story" than description. Perhaps that's as intended in this series of "what if", but it made for tedious reading even though the concept and the journey itself were very interesting. ( )

J'ai eu un peu de mal à rentrer dans ce bouquin, beaucoup de personnages et deux récits la fois ... néanmoins une fois dedans, un livre très accrocheur, riche et détaillé, à tel point qu'on y croit vraiment, alors que c'est finalement une uchronie. Ce premier volume se clos parfaitement, reste à voir ce que vaut le second... ( )

When Stephen Baxter had been writing for a few years, there was an opinion amongst many sf readers that "Baxter can do Big Dumb Objects, but he can't do characters for toffee." Then along came "Voyage" and blew that opinion out of the water.

The premise - an alternate universe where Kennedy survived assassination (just), and, invited by Nixon to the Oval Office to share in the reflected glory of the telephone call to the Moon in 1969, steals the show by publicly calling from his wheelchair for the next goal to be Mars, and no-one has the heart to raise any practical objections.

The story then develops as NASA devise a plan and begin to work towards it using 1960s technology. The characters have stepped straight out of "The Right Stuff" but they are beginning to get out of their depth. There are accidents, and there are human stories as the double standards of using Nazi rocket science come home to roost. Finally, the mission is accomplished, but at a price. And with a twist that shows that the alternate history Baxter portrays is truly different to ours.

(Baxter developed the universe of this novel in a short story [not collected, AFAIK] where a British attempt to put a man - Roly Beaumont, top test pilot of the 1950s - into orbit fails...) ( )
