Only atheists can go and there is a general theme of evolution and science but also fighting human nature. It doesn’t feel all that progressive, though there are equal amounts of men and women. It’s just a bit weird is all.
Also there seems to be a distinct separation of science and ‘art’ I suppose (or anyting non-sciencey) which reading the likes of Feynman, you know this is a bit arbitrary and has a very narrow view of human existence. I thought it a bit false.
Anyway, it’s all a bit dues ex machina when their future selves turn up and give them an oxygen extracting machine and plants that will grow on Mars. So we never know how anything is solved, just that it is solved. Whatever. Rather a lot of “huh?”
Hmm. It’s kind of interesting though, so maybe 3/5 stars if you’re into kind of weird, philosophical sci-fi.
