Meanwhile, India and Pakistan go to war. Pakistan deploys a nuclear device high in the upper atmosphere, putting the crew of the orbiting International Space Station in imminent danger of death by radiation exposure. Only a few weeks remain to rescue the crew and there's no known way to do it, except, perhaps, for a secret project of Scott's brother, Nick.

"Fiction-lovers will marvel at Aldrin's ability to tell a great sci-fi tale." (AudioFile)
Light listen for that long car ride. Well-developed characters but a predictable plot and a little preachy on the thinly veiled space exploration political agenda. Interesting view into the aerospace industry and first person descriptions of space travel.
