On August 25th, 2012, the Voyager 1 probe crossed into interstellar space. It contained a "golden record" with sounds, pictures, and greetings from earth.
On March 15th, 2013, NASA received a transmission from the spacecraft that said: "Hello. We received your golden record. Let's meet."
Now, internationally bestselling author B.C.CHASE invites you on a daring first contact mission into deep space with five intrepid astronauts, one spunky cosmonaut, and a seventy-five-year-old truck driver.
"Planet Pluto is a compulsively readable, twisty first-contact tale about a voyage from Earth to the edge of the solar system to meet mysterious aliens. The protagonist is an engagingly irascible elderly truck driver the aliens wanted along for reasons of their own, and his cranky-but-charming voice provides an excellent grounding for a tale full of physical, mechanical, and moral disasters. Planet Pluto is packed with mysteries and surprises, and filled with enough interesting engineering detail to thrill fans of The Martian."
