At Comic Con this year in the You Got Science in My Fiction panel, Andy Weir, the author of the smash hit book/movie The Martian, had confirmed to fans that his upcoming novel about a female astronaut living in a city on the Moon will be as scientifically accurate as The Martian was and still is.
“It’s another all-the-science-is-real type of book,” he said in the You Got Science in My Fiction panel.
Weir also gave us fans a few slight tidbits about what to expect from his upcoming book which still remains untitled (at least according to the information we have).
“The book is another scientifically accurate story,” Weir said in April. “The main character is a low-level criminal in a city on the moon. Her challenges are a mix of technical/scientific problems, as well as juggling personal interactions-staying a step ahead of the local police, working with shady and dangerous people to do illegal things.”
It’ll be interesting to see what type of illegal things you can do in a city on the Moon and get caught for it. Right now, I’ve really drawn a blank on this subject as I can’t really think of anything, but of course authorities will be making rules and laws as we extend our living space to other planets in our galaxy in order to keep everyone in tact, however it’ll nonetheless be very interesting to see what Weir comes up with.
This book will also reportedly be placed in the setting where feminism and women’s rights are basically nonexistent, meaning everyone is entitled to the same thing no matter what their gender is. It’s nice to see someone as brave and as strong as an astronaut who happens to be a woman lead such an interesting story and profound role. I’m really looking forward to reading this new book, and I hope you are too as it sure will be an interesting read.
