Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

The science is so bad that the story is a painful read. For example, the moon doesn't have a dark side. Objects in orbit move far too fast for a person to dodge out of the way of something. Star systems and galaxies are not roughly the same size. If you're travelling at near light speed, you do not abruptly stop to mine an asteroid and then jump right back to light speed. And the shapes of the constellations are not actually a guide to the mind of God.
