In Project Hail Mary, a lone astronaut must save the earth from disaster. Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission—and if he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish. Written by Andy Weir, author of The Martian, Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival that takes us to places it never dreamed of going.
