To Be Taught, If Fortunate – Staff Review – Terry
Would you give up the life you know to go explore other planets?
To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chamber is a novella that centers around an exploratory crew visiting exoplanets in the near future. The main focus of the story is mostly focused on the way the crew deal with the stresses and challenges of the places they visit as well as the isolation of not only being far from Earth, but that they will not return for many years and have no contact other than pre-recorded messages that take years to arrive. A very interesting read into the ethics and purpose of space exploration.
