Otafu Susume 54 – Nerds In Spaaace! (Project Hail Mary)

Two nerds talk about space, suspense and haaard science.

This is our first recommendation of a novel! (What a novel idea…!*ahem*)

Join our otaku spouse as they talk about the hit novel Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. There’s so much in this book that even with three levels of spoiler warnings they barely scratch the surface!

(It’s a good book. Go read it!)

**Varying levels of spoilers (with spoiler warnings)**

  1. I recently read this book and I’m obsessed!! It’s SO good!! If you haven’t read the book. STOP READING THESE WORDS and go read Project Hail Mary now!

    Wes seems very nitpicky on the translation part lol. I thought the novel did an amazing job describing communicating with Rocky… Grace and Rocky are highly intelligent and both trained in the scientific method (which… probably requires more of a suspension of disbelief now that I think about it… but it’s fiction) so in their situation they treat language like a tool and not an art.
