Ket, a vibrant math genius, jokes about quantum bras. Rube, an introspective virtual-body designer, worries about past fiascos. Both are graduate students in India in the Mars Program. Both must avoid personal entanglement to make the cut for the next mission. But sparks fly when Rube gets near Ket at a demo meant to defy Einstein.
Rube is warned not to pursue Ket; though he rationalizes he cannot avoid a potential crewmate. Then Ket’s brother-in-law arrives to make her his second wife. Rube intervenes and spies on her family in the virtual body of a doll, only to learn of a mysterious plan that threatens the program.
Meanwhile, Ket struggles to analyze data from a new antenna while wondering if the program’s founder wants her as his Eve on Mars. After she accidentally contacts aliens, she learns they want something from her too: DNA sequences to create human embryos throughout the cosmos.
The pressure increases. Everyone wants something from Ket. Everything Rube does ends in disaster. If they make the wrong decisions, not only will they end up worlds apart, with humanity’s future ruined, they’ll end up dead.
