Overview

What would it be like to ride a rocket from earth into space? What would it be like to see the stars in the blackness of infinity and to feel the awe of looking down on the surface of a distant world after traveling months to reach it?

Through the words of one who has planned crew systems and space robotics for human missions to Mars, such experiences come to authentic life in The Promise. They become real through the lives of the unforgettable characters that populate the story from Walter Carswell, a rather ordinary man from midwest America who dreams of going into space to hard-nosed technicians and passionate idealists who drive the dream of the first human mission to Mars into reality. The story builds on Walter Carswell's love of a young women who shares his dream of space travel to an ultimate encounter with his promise to meet her in space one day.
