I didn't know until I was partway into the book, but it seems this was Baxter's first published novel.. and in the early 90's 😯 for some reason he always struck me as having started a decade earlier, it's odd.
Anyway, it *does* feel like a First Novel (compared to his later works, of which I have read many but not all), but it's nowhere near as rough as that *could* mean. 👇

I'm happy that this is already in the database and I don't have to turn on my PC to add it 😂 but I disapprove of the cover art it has there! That's not what the Raft looks like!! *omg nitpicking*
Here's what it should be ;D guest-starring Corvus (I told you I had more than one cat!)
The Science of Interstellar was written by the great theoretical physicist Kip Thorne who was the science advisor and executive producer of the movie. I saw Interstellar four times in the theater including two times in IMAX - I now want to see it again! This book is chock full of cool inside info about the movie and hard science. I loved everything about his book.
My second read for #ScienceSeptember.
