THE MISSION A True Story

by | Read by JD Jackson

Contemporary Culture • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrated with aplomb by JD Jackson, this audiobook tells the strange but true account of a planned space mission to Jupiter's moon Europa. While the mission's launch date is currently 2024, the journey so far is worthy listening for those interested in the inner workings of NASA, space travel, politics, and the nature of obsession. The story is packed with interesting characters, especially intrepid planetary scientist Robert Pappalardo, who leads the mission. As narrator, Jackson delivers a rollicking good time by smoothly weaving together storytelling and science. Also, his slightly droll tone captures the author's comedic touch, which is peppered with pop culture references. Listeners will be entertained by the humor and the human drama while learning about the science driving the Europa mission. A.T.N. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
