by Kim Stanley Robinson
A major new novel from one of science fiction's masters the multiple award winner (Mars trilogy and 2312) Kim Stanley Robinson.
AURORA tells the incredible story of our first voyage beyond the solar system. A multigenerational starship left Earth generations ago. Now as it begins to decelerate toward its destination an engineer begins to suspect potentially disastrous changes to the ship and its population.
Brilliantly imagined and beautifully told, it is the work of a writer at the height of his powers. This story features science and technology along with big ideas and a sophisticated society. We call the genre Hard SF, not because its hard to read but, because it uses science and technology in realistic ways to move the plot.
Will the ship make it to their new home? Will the people on the starship bare any resemblance to the earthlings who launched the ship?
