WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Spaceman follows astronaut Molly Jennis on her attempt to be the first human to reach Mars. Seven months into an eight-month journey to the red planet, she is the lone crew member of the space module Aeneas. On her mission to establish a colony, the difficulties of interplanetary space travel are brought to life in exacting detail. Radiation exposure, long-term weightlessness, low light, extensive communication delays, and poor hygiene are just a few of the challenges she faces on her quest to be the first to Mars, but Molly soon finds that nothing compares to the psychological effects of having so much time alone.
