sci-fi book: Project Hail Mary

Project Hail Mary - Wikipedia

Project Hail Mary is a 2021 science fiction novel by American novelist Andy Weir. Set in the near future, the novel centers on junior high (middle) school-teacher-turned-astronaut Ryland Grace, who wakes up from a coma afflicted with amnesia. He gradually remembers that he was sent to the Tau Ceti solar system, 12 light-years from Earth, to find a means of reversing a solar dimming event that could cause the extinction of humanity.[1] Project Hail Mary is Weir's third novel, after The Martian in 2011 and Artemis in 2017.
