One woman. One mission. One chance to save the world.
 
It's 1952, and the world as we know it is gone. A meteorite has destroyed Washington DC, triggering extinction-level global warming. To save humanity, the world unites to form the International Aerospace Coalition.
 
Its mission: to colonise first the Moon, then Mars. Elma York, World War Two pilot and mathematician, dreams of becoming an astronaut - but prejudice has kept her grounded. Now nothing - and no man - will stop her from reaching for the stars.

"In The Calculating Stars, Mary Robinette Kowal imagines an alternate history of spaceflight that reminds me of everything I loved about Hidden Figures."
(Cady Coleman, Astronaut )
