Proxima

Proxima

by Stephen Baxter

Mankind's future in this galaxy could be all but infinite. There are hundreds of billions of red dwarf stars, lasting trillions of years — and their planets can be habitable for humans. Such is the world of Proxima Centauri. And its promise could mean the never-ending existence of humanity. But first it must be colonized, and no one wants to be a settler. There is no glamor that accompanies it, like being the first man on the moon, nor is there the ease of becoming a citizen of an already-tamed world. There is only hardship, loneliness, emptiness. But that's where Yuri comes in. Because sometimes exploration isn't voluntary. It must be coerced.
