A fan for the past twenty years and a fan of the space program his entire life, the author has explored modeling many science fiction ships and mecha in 3D before discovering it's far easier to WRITE then animate.
This is the author's third published book, with more to come!

Poorly written- I've seen high school papers that were more organized. Plus lots of childish digs at FOX, republicans, etc.....Keep the politics out of it and the story will improve, if you get a good editor.

Cover some of the technical aspects in the political aspects and just the difficulty of getting along with people in a enclosed environment although I admit the politics in there to get annoying however it is very accurate with their stealing of money for other projects at least there's no over the bleeding heart liberals as well at least from the point of view of somebody who is in between the two parties

I enjoyed the story and can deal with the grammatical errors. Lots of digs atnrepublicans and fox news. Lots of loving for.msnbc. funny thing is insteadnof bashing republicans he should have democrats and obama. Afterall they are the ones who camned the space shuttle program without a.back up space program. Kind of weird a scifi guy would support folks like that.
